A relaxed brown based neutral

This earthy colour sits somewhere between the more traditional Oxford Stone and greyer Elephant's Breath. Though muted, it is incredibly uplifting and reminds us of lazy days by the sea - hence sharing its name with the bus that whisks New Yorkers out of the hot city to the similarly coloured sandy beaches of the Hamptons.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Dimity

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful colour Jitney is THE most beautiful colour. It is brown but such a lovely, soft delicate brown, non intrusive, but warm and classy. I have put it on the main wall in one of my bedrooms and I have teamed it with Middleton pink which I have put in my window alcove. The two colours are absolutely amazing together. Now I feel I have a lovely sophisticated bedroom. I would highly recommend pairing Jitney with Middleton pink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jitney We decided on Jitney for the walls in our north facing kitchen with its pebble coloured units . The colour is warm in most lights and can look pinkish or coffee coloured in the changing light . The paint covers well and is lovely to apply . Like all Farrow and Ball paint , it will enhance your room

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour We bought 5L of this for walls and Cecily ha to go over a freshly plastered wall (with 2 white wushu washy coats already done). We used almost whole tin. We took ages picking colours and even had a wobble as painting this on a white sheet of A4 paper make this appear very grey, but it didn’t come out that way. We went with standard white paint on woodwork and it works well. It’s a calming colour and hoping to team up with navy curtains and bed linen. North-east facing room. Took 2 coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich and earthy My colour consultant suggested this for my hallway. Painted it in the modern emulsion myself and it was easy enough, especially for a total novice! It is a gorgeous rich and earthy brown. It looked quite darker in my windowless hallway compared to some of the pictures I had seen, but I do really love it.
