Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odour, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. 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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always worth paying that little extra As always, the best paint to use. This Cream covers extremely well and although I was painting over a similar colour just one coat with a heavily loaded good quality roller was enough to do the job quickly and effectively. You cant fault Farrow and Ball quality, just the best. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quality but expensive We have used your products for a number of years and have always found them excellent if not a little pricey

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this colour Estate Emulsion No. 44 is a true cream colour. Other paint manufacturers just don't seem able to make a good cream. I have been using this colour in my sitting room for years - I live in a National Trust cottage - very, very old with very old walls and this colour really suits the cottage and also allows the walls to breathe. As always F&B paint is such a joy to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great neutral colour. We've used Cream44 for our hallway & Stairs for a change from Sudbury yellow51. This has brightened up the area but still gives a warm look, and looks good with the light oak stairs & Door frames. The Modern Emulsion paint always covers well, we used under coat & two top coats to cover the Sudbury Yellow which gave a great finish.
