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).

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bright green I was looking for a bright green for the feature wall in our north-facing kitchen / diner, and this is certainly bright! I tried sample pots of Breakfast Room & Yeabridge and found them too grey; Bancha too brown; and Verdigris quite flat. In the end, I paired the Emerald feature wall with Cooking Apple Green in the diner half and Pink Ground in the kitchen and window alcoves, and it has worked well in terms of brightening up the space. As ever, Modern Emulsion gives reliably good results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous sumptuous green paint I had been dreaming of painting my wardrobe green. A certain kind of green. Which I found at Farrow and Ball. It was the first time I had used their paint. It was a lovely quality, fantastic coverage and low odour. I loved the results so much I uploaded a photo!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very green!! Super intense gorgeous colour but not right for the room we had intended. Swapped to a less strong green, however this colour is fantastic. My advice is to try the sample pot first!
