Deep Reddish Brown


Deep Reddish Brown 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 deep, earthy brown

Deep, warm and welcoming, this shade was once popular in country houses, where it was often used to highlight the woodwork of back stairs. In a contemporary setting, it still makes a wonderful colour for walls, doors and trim alike, adding richness and drama to any space.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones

Complementary white: Orange Coloured White

Deep Reddish Brown is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 16.

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 Wonderful colour! I bought this for my wooden fireplace mantel. I just finished it, using a graining technique. I am so pleased with the end result. Just as I imagined it would turn out, it did indeed! I am very glad I purchased this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes painting easy and satisfying! I don't usually look forward to painting, but having used F&B for the first time, I'm pleasantly surprised. Very easy to apply, and an absence of those annoying drips you get with cheaper paints. Coverage was excellent - the primer/undercoat did a really good job in one coat. This job was even one I looked forward to, between coats! This colour does look like a really rich and deep stain, which was a bonus for our driveway gates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No comparisons We bought this pint for the darkest room in our house after we gave up trying to make it brighter and decided to embrace the darkness. The result was very dramatic and the room is now a special feature in our house. A great colour with lots of depth and just couldn’t find anything like it anywhere else (we tried). Goes on super easily but make sure you use a roller as much as possible to reduce unevenness. Highly recommend.
