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 Lovely colour with a hint of vintage I bought this sample as it’s been difficult to get the shade of green I wanted for my kitchen. This is bright and fresh and I love the slight vintage feel to it. So far I’ve used it only to paint the lettering on my wooden bread bin, egg box and utensils holder which I’ve mainly painted with F and B Pointing paint. Looks fab!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour. Looks fab. Gorgeous bright green which looks wonderful as a feature wall in our dining room. Took three coats to get a nice smooth finish. Really pleased with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich and vibrant As a loyal Farrow and Ball fan I wanted a new colour for my kitchen. I chose Emerald, estate emulsion for the walls and eggshell for the shelving. I was not disappointed with the result. A beautiful vibrant colour making it a wonderful welcoming room to wander down to in the morning. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for furniture We bought this to refurbish a very old chipped cream chest of drawers. It arrived promptly and has created a great result. It’s a nice 20% sheen. It took 3 coats from our 750ml tin. The texture of the estate eggshell slightly rough and feels like it’ll be hard wearing. The colour is beautiful! We liked the eco friendly credentials of the paint. It is thinner than we usually use and a stronger smell. However it went on well with both a brush and mini roller.
