Archive Collection: Print Room Yellow


A soft golden yellow

Less of a true, sunny yellow than Babouche or Yellow Ground, Print Room Yellow creates a feeling of instant warmth, especially in rooms with little natural light. While it has a beautiful rawness under direct light, the inclusion of soft ochre pigments ensures that it never feels overpowering.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: New White

Archive Collection: Print Room Yellow is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17.

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 This product is great Print room yellow is a strong colour, golden in the sunlight with green undertones showing through in low light. We used it on three walks in our medium sized living room in conjunction with London Clay. It works well and has an uplifting feel when you enter the room. Lovely paint to apply.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfectly beautiful This colour is my favourite F&B paint colour. We have it in our snug, which is a small, light deprived room off our kitchen. This small room felt cold and cheerless, but Print Room Yellow has given it warmth, beauty and style. The colour has wonderful depth and changes constantly at different times of day.In this room I have a black wood burner and shelves painted in Railings, also two sofas, one red, the other blue. The floor is natural pine floorboards and most furniture is old pine. Lots of colourful, vibrant cushions and throws complete the look. It sounds like a hodge podge, but it works! I have just painted my cold, north facimg bedroom in Print Room Yellow and it has worked its magic again. A truly lovely paint which warms up and gives depth to a room which needs warming up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from deep and rich colour Wonderful deep mustard yellow colour. Very elegant. Very rich. Took three coats on our walls but a medium sized tin was sufficient; with some to spare. Would recommend.
