Dead Salmon

No.28

An aged salmon pink

A subtle shade whose name refers to the flat or ‘dead’ finish of an aged pink painted at Kedleston Hall in 1805, Dead Salmon has a magical quality to it as everyone sees it differently. Be it a strong mushroom steeped in history, or a warming buff neutral, this deep salmon pink creates the most subtle and serene of environments suitable as a backdrop in candlelit dining rooms. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones

Complementary white: Dimity

Dead Salmon is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 56.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous colour and excellent paint I had a sample of dead salmon on the wall for a month before committing to it for the bedroom. It came out absolutely perfectly in two coats and looks stunning in the small bedroom. It’s a really multi-dimensional colour (sometimes looks taupe, sometimes browny, sometimes blush pink and in direct sunlight, almost whiteish). and it looks absolutely fantastic with the white and black furniture in the room. Would thoroughly recommend the colour and F&B paint

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern emulsion perfect for the bath We bought 4 liters of estate finish for the bathrooms; it's so dry here in Arizona that even our baths dry quickly. It was a disaster --- long tear-stains anywhere we hung a wet towel or flicked a little water. Then we read about finishes and tried modern emulsion. We couldn't be more pleased. The paint is easy to apply (As it should be after two coats of estate emulsion!) and has a rich color and lovely sheen. Better yet, no streaking. Next time I'll read the instructions and match the finish to the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chameleon of a colour I bought this to paint a sideboard in my family room. I’m really pleased with the finish. The colour changes during different times of the day from a beautiful soft salmon to almost lilac sometimes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful calm colour I've been wanting to use Dead Salmon for a long time. Finally went for it in my living room. Originally teal. I absolutely love the calming feel Dead salmon has given this space. Beautiful colour that changes tone throughout the day. Quality of the paint amazing. Only 2 coats to cover a very dark teal. So impressed. But what I have to to expect of Farrow and Ball. Its throughout my house in various colours. Thankyou.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint I bought 5L Modern Emulsion Dead Salmon No.28. Interesting name, but a lovely warm colour for my home office. The paint went on smoothly and evenly. Cutting in was no problem either. Minimum smell but it does take a while - weeks - to go completely.
