Ringwold Ground


A fresh yet warm cream

Ringwold Ground, like the slightly lighter Tallow, is a fresh feeling neutral that creates a delightfully warm and glowing room. Named after a Hampshire rectory occupied by one of the original Farrow & Ball directors, the addition of the merest amount of red pigment adds warmth without feeling too creamy.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Tallow

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.


All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful color - shouldn't be only archive color I couldn't buy it in Germany during Corona times (April 1) and ordered it in GB. The order was processed very quickly and taken care of personally by a German speaking lady. Thank's very much for that. The color and paint themselves are fabulous. Everyone visiting asks me about the wonderful color (#208 - Ringwold Ground). It should be a regular color instead of only archive in my view - I hope it will still be available long term.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast delivery I bought this to freshen up walls already painted in Ringwold Ground. Having bought various cheaper paints over the years, nothing compares to Farrow and Ball and it's well worth the higher price. This was the first time I'd ordered online directly from the company and the customer contact and speed of delivery were both excellent and I would order F & B paint this way again.
