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 - great for exterior painting We have painted various pieces of exterior furniture in this colour, it’s an excellent quality paint, although in my opinion the name doesn’t do it justice, as it has a blue/green tinge to it. I would normally not go for ‘grey’ in a million years! Sits in nicely with your garden. This shed is our most recent project in this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Painting my garden office The colour is wonderful. Not overly green but a rich garden grey. The paint went on smoothly and went a long way leaving us with plenty to use in the future. We used a primer as we were painting an outdoor wooden building. The end result is lovely, looks really good blending into the garden and yet making a shed like construction look smart and contemporary. Really pleased with the finished look.would definitely recommend . We had originally thought the paint was a bit on the pricey side but on reflection well worth the extra. We had seen the colour on loads of buildings in Stamford and I asked someone what the colour was. There is a good sight on line where the colours are well represented and show a range of shades that will look good together . This was really helpful.
