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.


Our paint colours are 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 Superb I've been looking for this colour for a long time to complement a painting. It's a green toned lemon with a touch of taupe? Anyway, like a pale chartreuse that changes depending on the light and I love it. I got the estate emulsion that disguises the dodgy wall textures brilliantly. Very easy to use and goes such a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely bright colour We chose this colour to bring a bit of brightness into the nursery. It goes very well with blackened which we used on the rest of the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfying paint to use and adore this colour I bought the modern eggshell citrona for upcycling some bedside units. I love f&b paint, it never disappoints, I've previously repainted our kitchen cupboards and found the application so easy that I didn't hesitate to buy again. This colour is so satisfying, it's warmer than I originally thought it would be, very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour! I bought this ‘blind’ after seeing the Californian Edit online. I thought it looked like a nice colour so did something I would never normally do and just ordered it! I used it yesterday and it looks amazing. I’ve never used Farrow & Ball paint before and was impressed by the quality of the paint. It went on so easily. Am now deciding what colour to paint the hallway!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab-u-lous Brought this colour as I wanted a colour as close to citron as possible, I actually tried F&B Citron but felt it was too creamy. Got my sample card and new immediately new that this was the colour for me. I have painted 2 walls in my kitchen and a wall in my dining room. It all looks amazing and I am extremely happy with the end result, it makes me smile every time I walk into the room.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great colour, disappointing value Love this colour, is a definite contender for painting our dining room when we get there, so can only comment on the sample here, not what the paint is like in full. I was disappointing that the sample is an A4-ish (slightly smaller) paper sample, rather than a paint pot. Given that it cost the same (£4.95) as the sample pots which would cover an area about 8 times the size if required, I think this is very poor value for money. So score is average of quality of the colour (4 stars) and quality fo the sample (one star)
