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 Wonderful deep rich blue This is a wonderful deep rich blue which goes on like a dream, 2 coats and you are done in the Modern emulsion, short drying time and does not produce strong fumes when drying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love the colour I’ve been revamping my kitchen in lockdown, on a budget. I have taken down the cupboards and I plan to add wooden open shelves. I wanted a deep pop of colour on a feature wall and farrow and ball didn’t disappoint!!! However the pain is so thick and took a bit of getting used to using. I will definitely opt for a farrow and ball roller next time rather than my usual paint roller

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I purchased the paint with the plan to paint half walls in my living room. We were deciding between Hague Blue and Scotch Blue, and eventually went with the latter as it has more of a red tint which matched the rest of our furniture better. Really pleased with the result - we used the recommended dark tone primer and the top coat just glided on beautifully. The colour is so rich and changes with the lighting in the room. It's more vibrant in daytime and at night it's darker and adds a cozy feeling to the room. We would highly recommend this colour and Farrow & Ball paints. I have ordered more tester pots and looking to paint the bedroom next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep, rich and classy! A great use of our lockdown time. It was a bit of a wait on line with the restrictions, but so worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Rich Blue After a lot of research I decided on Scotch Blue for my Island to team with Purbeck Stone on the wall and base cabinet using the Modern Eggshell. The blue looks different in changing light. It can look dark deep blue navy through to almost purple in the morning sun. The coverage was very good, and the final finish was very stylish and i received some lovely comments.
