Duck Green


Duck Green is from our new Colour by Nature palette, created in collaboration with the Natural History Museum to bring the true colours of nature into your home.

A smart deep green

Named after the deep green plumage of a mallard, Duck Green is a wonderful reminder of the exquisite colours of nature. Strong but subdued, it offers a contemporary alternative to charcoal shades for modern homes, and makes a warm and welcoming pair with Deep Reddish Brown on woodwork.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Ash Grey

Duck Green is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 154.

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 Amazing Colour I tried a few different sample pots and none of them were quite hitting the mark. The last one we tried was Duck Green and I instantly loved it, don’t let the price put you off as they say - you pay for what you get. If you’re trying to decide to splash out, then I would highly recommend this paint. The quality and colour is awesome - it looks and feels expensive and luxurious. Only thing I would say is, possible because I haven’t had experience with Farrow & Ball before, you have to put the paint on thick otherwise it will show up patchy - also with this paint it had a lot of air bubbles whilst rolling on the wall which I haven’t had before with other paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Colour, Great Cover I am a convert to Farrow and Ball, having considered them too expensive in the past. The quality of the paint and coverage makes it worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing paint looks like velvet when dried Had to use two coats but it’s dried so nicely definitely worth spending the extra money on this paint

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing paint! Was just going to do a feature wall but ended up doing the whole room as the paint was so lovely. Used Caulke Green. Went on really well, the best paint I've used yet. Customer service was amazing.....can't fault anything about Farrow and Ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks amazing, beautiful colour and finish We bought this for the front doors of our business, and it took a fair few coats, but it’s transformed them completely. We’re opening soon and we daily get constant comments about how wonderful they look. We’re so pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Class Quality I bought this paint a couple of weeks ago, the colour was exactly as shown in the picture, the colour is rich and makes a big statement when we walk into our bedroom. We also went and bought a second shade of green yesterday (Bancha) and it was equally as beautiful. I will never buy another make of paint again as this is by far the best yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Green with Envy I just love the Farrow and Ball range in general, but really wanted a change from the soft neutrals I have used and decided after testing 4 samples to go for the darkest..Duck Green. I wanted to update an old 2nd hand cupboard I had bought 20 years ago. It was in the original repainted white and did have a look of shabby chic that some would perhaps preferred. However, time for a change. I love the finish of the Estate Eggshell (recommended for indoor wood.) I wanted the colour to stand out from the background which are F&B (above dado rail) Estate Emulsion Off White and Old White on the lincrusta. I delighted with my new posh shoe cupboard!
