Strong White

No. 2001  

Strong White 5 5 29 29
Brilliant colour that would complement any room design I have used this paint colour with Print Room Yellow and Rectory Red and it is brilliant with both colours 08 August 2014
a lovely grey white I need a white to go with my white metro tiles in my monochrome bathroom, teamed it with Mole’s Breath for the wood work, bathroom is south facing. Used the modern emulsion for walls and also the Estate Eggshell for the door 05 August 2014
Palest grey In isolation this looks almost white, but once put against pure white it is clearly reasonably grey. We bought this as an alternative to Ammonite which seemed a little too dark to use on sloping walls in an eaves room. This is lovely. Used against Wevet on the ceilings and Manor House Grey on the feature wall it is an overall subtle and soothing scheme. 11 June 2014
Not a sign of weakness Rarely in the world of white has there been a white so strong 29 May 2014
A restful greyish white I have used this colour on the walls of two west facing rooms. One is in a dining room against a white fireplace surround and alcove shelves which means the colour appears to be a very true and clean pale grey. I am delighted as there is enough contrast to make the white woodwork stand out. The other room is a bedroom where all the woodwork (including a fireplace surround and a small fitted wardrobe) is painted in Pigeon. With no white in this room as a contrast, Strong White is a wonderfully restful and classy off-white. I absolutely love the results and it was well worth the extra money. In both rooms, the colour is painted onto lining paper which I think usually results in a slightly different shade to what it would be on plasterwork. 16 May 2014
The most perfect colour This is my favorite Farrow and Ball paint colour. I searched and searched for a perfect white with a hint of grey and finally I found it. Strong white is clean, fresh and so calming. I have used it throughout our hallway and in our sitting room and absolutely love it. Previously I had used shades with an underlying yellow tone- which I dislike as they don't feel quite fresh but this does not have any yellow tones. I have teamed it with all white above picture rails and on woodwork and this combination works perfectly. If you are looking for a subtle grey tone for your scheme then do not hesitate to try Strong White. 11 May 2014
Stunning. Like a very pale green cloud. I was a bit thrown by the green tint when I first opened the can but once it was up on the walls (of our small plaster-walled bedroom) I immediately fell in love. It's depth is astounding. And the room now feels clean and fresh. And elegant. 12 March 2014
So versatile I have painted my walls with this colour teaming it up with Cornforth White for facings and skirtings and Moles Breath for window ledges and doors. I was a little concerned that the greys would make the room look cool but they don't, they are beautiful and exceed my expectations. I can use so many colours in soft furnishings so I can dress the rooms for specific seasons. Have to say Moles Breath is gorgeous but then Farrow and Ball is like a box of chocolates most of the colours I find really scrummy! 12 February 2014
