A strong earthy neutral
This earthy yellow based neutral is so called because it is a stronger version of String, both in colour and use! Cord has a traditional ‘below stairs’ feel and works as the perfect kitchen unit colour with String or Matchstick on the walls. The warmly aged hue has a surprising strength of colour in underlit rooms, so is often used in studies and libraries.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE
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.
