Charlotte's Locks


A deep and playful orange

Charlotte's Locks takes its inspiration from the flame red hair of our Head of Creative and brings a playful late 1970s look. This deep and dramatic orange is particularly spectacular when used in small areas with a sharp contrast either in All White or Black Blue - for the very brave, do try in Full Gloss!

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones

Complementary white: All White

Charlotte's Locks is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 79.

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.


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.


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 Really great paint to use This was my first time using Farrow & Ball paints. Now I know why they're so popular. I suffer from high alergic reactions to high VOC paints, and low VOC paints rarely cover well. This Charlotte's Locks Estate emulsion took 4 coats over a brilliant white diamond matt, but dried beautifully, with no paint odour whatsoever

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny I am normally disappointed by the colour of paint once it is applied to the wall but this beautiful colour definitely has not! It is just as warm and vibrant as in the pictures!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour! Absolutely amazing colour, not tacky at all... with orange you have to be careful because it can look very cheap sometimes, if you don’t choose good quality paint or the right shade. But this paint turned out absolutely beautifully, and looks top quality. Will definitely be buying again from F&B!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The cosiest snug Charlotte’s Locks brought this room to life. It’s a small space but surprisingly feels more open and is wonderfully bold and bright yet warm and inviting and we love it.! We really like the contrast with the All white eggshell and the old wood! So impressed F&B.
