Cabbage White


The slightest hint of blue

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. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: All White

Cabbage White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 107.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calming bedroom colour Loved this paint. Two coats was more than enough. It is the perfect match with a William Morris duck egg wallpaper feature wall. It makes the bedroom feel breezy and calm whilst also cosy at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a day at the spa I used Borrowed Light on my master bedroom walls (ceiling Wimborne White, on advice from F&B paint store), and then renovated the small adjoining bathroom using all-white tiles/fixtures, crossed my fingers & chose Cabbage White for the walls (repeated Wimborne White on ceiling). Subtle and beautiful! My sister, who's planning a bathroom renovation, recently visited and exclaimed "looks like a spa!" When I added that F&B paint may seem a bit pricey, but covers and holds-up better than any other brand, she packed my F&B "colours card" in her suitcase. I had to order another card, but F&B has won yet another fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bedroom transformed A lovely colour that changes throughout the day, moving from powder blueish to white to silver to grey to many other blues. It's ever so restful and created exactly the right calming environment for our bedroom. Good coverage too and needed much less than anticipated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely complimentary colour with Inchyra Blue We had already chosen Inchyra Blue for the wardrobes in our bedroom and were looking for a wall colour to complete the room. The bedroom faces south and east and is built into the eaves. We wanted a colour to use on the walls and ceiling so nothing too dark. We tried several sample pots - Ammonite, Blackened and cabbage White. Cabbage White was perfect. It has a lovely lightness to it and similar greens/blue tones to the Inchyra Blue. We are very happy with the results
