Estate Eggshell

A historic-feeling pink, developed for the dining room at Templeton House to offset the magnificent Wedgwood plaques made to commemorate a former owner.  

A satin, low sheen finish, Estate Eggshell subtly highlights interior wood and metal. Washable and wipeable, it brings understated elegance to doors, skirting boards, radiators and more.


Complementary white: Stirabout

Key features

Low sheen

Low sheen

The soft, low sheen satin finish of our Estate Eggshell subtly highlights interior wood and metal. 20% sheen. 

Our deeper, richer colours are available in a range of finishes with different sheen levels. Sheen always affects how colour appears: the same shade in gloss can look very different in matt. That’s why we specifically adjust the formula for every finish to make sure the balance is exactly right and you get the colour you were expecting. Our colours and finishes are formulated together, so you simply can’t have one without the other. 

For interior wood and metal

For interior wood and metal

The soft, low sheen satin finish of our Estate Eggshell subtly highlights interior wood and metal. 20% sheen. 

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). Browse our full selection of finishes to find the perfect paint for your project. 



Estate Eggshell is a durable, washable finish so you can easily wipe away spills and marks – without wiping away paint. 

100% water based

100% water based

We’re proud to have been the first in the industry to transition to a completely water based range back in 2010. As a result, all of our finishes, including our tough trim and floor paints, are made with a low-odour, low-VOC water base that scores A+ for indoor air quality. 
Plus, our water based paint doesn’t discolour over time like solvent based paints can. So your spaces stay beautiful for longer. 

Toy safe

Toy safe

This finish is independently tested and certified toy-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021). That means you can and a splash of colour to toys, cribs and other surfaces little ones come into contact with. Our paints also have hardly any odour and don’t need any solvents to clean up, so you can breathe easy during application and beyond.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A calming and sophisticated pink I used Templeton Pink in our main bedroom and couldn't be happier. It feels so calming and sophisticated. It looks beautiful day and night looking bright and fresh in the day and feels cosy in the evenings. I wouldn't use any other brand than farrow and ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Lovely colour and quality - we've used it to paint a previously light grey/green in our open-plan kitchen and Living Room. The paint covered well and has given the walls a lovely warm glow

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Atmospheric deep plaster colour We have decorated our north facing sitting room with a brick fireplace in this beautiful warming tone. Would describe it as wet plaster and therefore a shade deeper than setting plaster. We have paired it with deep brown shades in the rug and paler aqua tones in the soft furnishings. It is a perfect background colour for a cosseting space and has transformed the feel of our large space. A braver call for me as I would usually go for cooler tones but this has made me think of pinky-brown tones for other spaces. Great with Pointing on ceiling and trim.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bellissimo colore Templenton Pink è stata per me una scelta di pancia e poco ragionata. Dopo anni che nelle pareti della mia cucina avevo l’apprezzato Green Smoke, cambio tutto e rivoluziono l’ambiente. Adesso la mia poco luminosa cucina ha finalmente una luce calda e accogliente. Sono pienamente soddisfatta. Il colore è un profondo rosa carne molto cubista che si esalta con i grigi scuri.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pleasing Pink Templeton Pink is not sugary or sweet or girlish; it is a pink of substance. Paired with Ringwold Ground in an attic bedroom -- using neutral RG on the walls and sloped ceiling and TP on the trim and fireplace -- it provides character, warmth and charm. It does intensify significantly at night and displays a greyish tone at certain angles in the stairwell, but such variations are what let you know that you are living with a paint of depth and personality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great colour, not very pigmented. Primer required I did a colour consultation and this colour was suggested for the hall at the entrance, for the kitchen and a wall in the living room. It is beautiful: very calming, unexpected and classy. However the pigmentation is not great: luckily I used the F&B primer otherwise I would have had to paint at least three layers to have a smooth coverage. It is not as creamy and covering as pelt, for example. Considering the price I was expecting more. In the end I got the result that I wanted but without the F&B primer it would have been a failure. I painted the ceiling with stirabout and it looks gorgeous.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bit darker and stronger than expected I tried Setting Plaster and Templeton Pink on card and went with the latter because I thought Setting Plaster looked a bit too pink and girly. Having done the room fully, Templeton Pink is a bit darker and stronger than expected, even in my south-west facing room with a big window (see picture with Setting Plaster card for comparison - excuse grimy neighbouring block). I like the colour but I'm not sure if I will keep it since it's a small room. Maybe I'll go with Setting Plaster instead. Will mull over it! The decorator liked working with it, anyway.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thin paint First time user of F&B paint, so disappointed. Very thin and needs min 3 costs if not 4.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A little disenchanted… For the first time (in many years of buying F&B) I find myself more than a tad disenchanted! I bought Middleton Pink on the strength of the description (another first as I have always tested colours with sample pots in the past) as was mid decorating the hall, stairs and landing. As the stair and landing walls below the picture rail were being painted in Setting Plaster (SP) I decided that above the picture rail on the landing and the skylight tunnel needed something richer to deepen the warm glow of the SP so jumped at Templeton Pink…but oh how I wish I hadn’t! The colour has a greyed, cold tone to it which not only distracts from the warm softness of the SP beneath, but make it look almost grubby! Very disappointed as it is an area that is way too high for me to reach to repaint and I certainly can’t afford to call the decorator back! A lesson learnt ~ never rely on another’s description of colour…even if it is the creator’s own!
