Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odour, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. They are also certified child- and baby-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021).

Exclusions: Casein Distemper, Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat, Wood Knot & Resin Blocking Primer & Undercoat, and Metal Primer & Undercoat.


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 Fabulous colour with a lot of depth It's a strong colour but so reassuring and cosy especially in the evenings. I have a Georgian terrace with original features it's perfect. Ceiling in Wimborne white. They compliment each other perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very easy to apply. Perfect match to colour card. I love working with Farrow and Ball paint. It always comes true to colour and is a good creamy consistency, making it a joy to apply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy colour Used Terre d'Egypte on a chimney breast and below the dado, with Joa's White below the picture rail. Woodwork in White Tie and Red Earth on ceiling and above the picture rail. The overall effect is just lovely. The colours are rich and warm and complementary. The depth of colour is wonderful. F &B paint may appear expensive initially, but the quality justifies the cost unreservedly.
