Archive Collection: Clunch


A soft chalk white

Clunch is named after the chalk stone used in the off-white building blocks of many East Anglian buildings. Its yellow base creates an incredibly versatile finish, making this an easy colour to live with. Clunch is often contrasted with Pointing on woodwork for a fresher look, or with Shaded White to create a more traditional room.

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).

Exclusions: Casein Distemper, Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat, Wood Knot & Resin Blocking Primer & Undercoat, and Metal Primer & Undercoat.


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 Super archive colour. Love it. A lovely archive colour. I am about to paint the walls in our lounge/dining room to give them a more classic and lighter feel. Already used this in another room. I have the estate eggshell and already done a cupboard door and really pleased it it. Can’t wait to start on the walls in the next week or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm neutral We went for Clunch because it goes well with jade and teal etc. as recommended by F&B. Very pleased with the results, we have paired with a colour from a rival brand but it works for us

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast Shipping, excellent quality I tried several pots in several areas as recommended, and was able to see it in every light level, making choosing easier. The paint itself (I used Estate Emulsion in Railings) worked well in my 1730's home. Even the paint can is designed for easy pouring. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect, unusual neutral for well lit rooms Grey may be more trendy right now but I'll always come back to this colour. Yes, it's an off-white, but to my eye it has a hint of grey-green that makes it unusual and interesting yet relaxing. I use it in my hallway and living room in a well-lit, postwar house with natural wood accents and the result is gentle, tonal and natural. Highly recommend this colour! Shipping was incredibly fast.
