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 4.4 out of 5 by 16.

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 Great coverage and looks stunning This is no ordinary emulsion it’s in a class of its own, it rolls on and dries so smoothly it looks simply stunning. Very pleased

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour I bought this after trying a tester pot. It didn’t disappoint. I used two coats F&B undercoat to cover a dark wood bedstead, then two coats Snow White Eggshell. Love the result and have recommended to friends

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected I sent for a sample pot of Snow White and was delighted that there was enough quantity to make a decision on colour. I subsequently bought enough Snow White Estate Emulsion to paint a large hardwood pine bedstead...delighted with result !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A soft, luminous white We chose snow white for our garden room because we we looking for a natural look. We have combined it with orange white on one wall. The room lets in a lot of light but is north facing on one side, south on the other. Pure white would have been a little harsh - snow white softens the light without making the room darker. It has a slight glow to it in sunlight and, combined with the orange white, makes the room feel warm. We would recommend.

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.
