Snow White


Snow White 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 fresh, delicate white

Snow White is a wonderful alternative to a pure white, versatile enough to be used on woodwork and ceilings alongside any other colour. A tiny hint of yellow pigment is the secret to its warm and reflective nature, bouncing light around in even the darkest of spaces and creating rooms with a laid-back feel.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Skimmed Milk White

Snow White is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.

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 subtle colour This paint was bought for our bedroom. This room is quite small, about 4 sq m, and receives relatively direct sunlight, as there is a car port outside. This was not our first F&B purchase, so we expected a subtle colour and were not disappointed. We find this colour contrasts our white skirting and lined pine ceiling very effectively and has provided us with just the effect we were looking for. I am a DIY painter, yet I found the coverage exactly in line with that stated onthe tin; two coats were all that we needed. We're very pleased with the outcome and will buy F&B again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's only a test pot I don't know how anybody can write a review of a test pot. It's a test pot. In due course it will be used to select a colour for the job in hand. The time to be writing reviews is when the job has been done and can be appreciated. How can one reccommend a test pot? I don't yet know the answers to the questions below

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour Snow white is a beautiful colour. It reminds me of the actual colour of vanilla ice cream. It's not yellowish, and it brightened our dark cottage hallway while keeping a soft effect. (It works well with our dark beams, which we have not painted over) We will be using it other rooms as it seems to look good beside many other colours we have tested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beaut colour! Such good delivery and well packaged to avoid damage/spillage. The Snow White colour is lovely. Great if you want to stick to neutral colours but want something a little bit different. Our living room is decked out with grey and orange furniture and it is quite rustic/homely and this colour works really well and pick up the grey of the furniture. Looks a tad paler than I expected but is really really nice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour This is a beautiful white. It was slightly more yellow than I was expecting, but it has a lovely bright uplifting quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lovely subtle shade I bought a sample of Wimborne White. It is so good we have decorated the dining room with it. Its a creamy ivory colour with the lovely typical F&B chalky finish. Easy to apply and dries relatively quickly. The estate emulsion is OK to touch up too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Colour Didn’t Match I ordered the sample pot to touch up a table leg which was painted Snow White but the sample pot was a totally different colour. Way too cream so am disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 4 x Coats Required We really love the colours shown in the colour charts, especially the new Natural History collection. Unfortunately, however, we were really disappointed with our delivery of sample pots. We ordered quite a few different colours and prepped some squares of wood in anticipation of our delivery, with undercoat and primer. After two coats of colour, we were disheartened to find pretty significant show-through; and it took a further two coats to achieve an even colour coverage. I'm glad we bought the sample pots, because I am certain now that we will not invest in the full-size colours, which are expensive enough as it is - and all the more so now that we understand that four coats are required for F&B colours. On the plus side, we appreciated the free delivery and fancy packaging. I'm just sorry that we will not proceed with a full order.
