A discreet pink

As its name suggests, Pink Drab lacks the brightness that can make other pinks appear sugary, resulting in a discreet and charming shade.

Key features

The finest ingredients

The finest ingredients

We’re dedicated to perfecting the art of paint. At our home in Dorset, we combine the finest ingredients, 75 years of experience and technical precision to help you create beautiful spaces that stay beautiful. Even in our colour rich paints, less than 8% of the tin is the colour. The other 92% is what creates the quality, depth and extraordinary response to light that transforms your home. 
 
Paint is like coffee. The colour is the froth on the top, but it’s the quality of the rest of the cup that makes it taste good. 
– Richard Ball, Farrow & Ball Co-founder 

We use twelve exclusive pigments, all specifically selected for their colour intensity. We take colour seriously, so naturally, we only accept the very best. By using these same pigments to make every colour in our palette, all our shades combine effortlessly, making it easy for you to put together a cohesive colour scheme. 

Deeper, richer colours

Deeper, richer colours

Packed with pigment for an extraordinary response to every kind of light.

We add generous helpings of rich pigment to create our signature look – deep colours with complex undertones. The same space that feels bright and airy in morning sun, can feel cosy and intimate by evening. Our teams design each shade under every kind of light, so it will be perfectly balanced in every setting.

Extraordinary response to light

Extraordinary response to light

We spend months carefully crafting and testing each of our paint colours to make sure they share our signature extraordinary response to light. This beautiful reaction to changing light, like bringing out different undertones or shifting intensity, is what makes our paint so special.

Interior and exterior finishes

Interior and exterior finishes

From walls, floors and furniture to radiators, skirtings and sheds, our range of paint finishes can help you transform almost any surface in your home (and outside it, too).

We even have multi-surface finishes like Dead Flat and Full Gloss, so you can tackle walls, woodwork and metal at the same time. 

Our comprehensive range is comprised of paint finishes that not only look beautiful, but offer different practical benefits. Designed for a variety of different surfaces, each finish is compatible with our high-performance Primers & Undercoats to ensure exceptional coverage, adhesion and depth of colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely LOVE this colour We have F and B all over the house - lots of red based colours - dead salmon, smoked trout, Joa's white etc but couldn't find the right colour for the kitchen until spotted this in the archive. Gorgeous colour sophisticated and warm. Thoroughly recommend.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but unexpected For my project, I wanted to use a pink color but none of the current collection's pinks were quite what I was going for. It was suggested to expand my search into the archive colors and I found this color, pink drab. As an archive color, I wasn't able to order a sample pot, but after seeing a few photos of the painted color online, I decided that this was the right color for my project. Sadly for me, after purchasing the paint and applying a large swathe, it was not. Pink drab is rather dark and purple, not the light mauve pictured online. It was my folly. I do love Farrow and Ball paint and have used many of their other colors, but this one won't work for this project. I do wish it were possible to order samples or get a small chart of the archive collection before commiting to the whole gallon.
