The slightest hint of blue
Paint Colours: Cabbage White
A subtle white with the slightest hint of blue, Cabbage White takes its name from the most delicate of butterflies. This palest of blues is perfect for rooms that go up into the eaves where you want to use just one colour on both walls and ceiling. This colour really comes into its own when contrasted with All White.
Available in our brand new Dead Flat® finish for walls, woodwork and metal.
Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones
Complementary white: Wevet
Rated 5 out of 5 by KatyAnne from Wonderful colour, coverage and finish. I have never used F & B before but I think that it is the only brand I'll be using in the future. I have used it in the bathroom and absolute love the colour as well as the finish that it gives. The Wilmslow shop recommended the modern emulsion and it is just perfect. I really like the coverage of the emulsion too. Very happy. Now I'm planning which colours to use in the rest of the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jc123 from Fresh but not boring This is a fresh color, with a definite blue tint (and a little green). It is in a room with very old plank walls, and a south window but isn't brightly lit. There will be a cabinet that is Wevet, which will make the walls all the more blue. In a room with a lot of natural light it would likely look white; maybe it would show more color if there was contrast (e.g., a white ceiling). It does not have an aged, dirty (in a good way) tint to it as some of their whites do (e.g., Lime White), nor does it go grey as some do (e.g., Borrowed Light). I probably wouldn't paint an enormous room with it, nor something tiny and dark such as a closet. It would be a great bedroom color if you're wanting something very light. The estate eggshell has a slight sheen--a true eggshell sort of finish. It covers well, and is the most durable and washable of the three sheens we've used (Estate and Modern Emulsions). I think it is by far the best of the Farrow and Ball formulas, and the most reliable (we've had some issues with consistency of quality with the other two). I recommend it for high-wear areas such as trim (primed with oil primer first!)
