London Clay


Our warmest brown

A warm and charming brown, London Clay is loaded with magenta pigment for a rich, earthy hue that creates the most charismatic and elegant of rooms. So named because it is a deeper accent to London Stone, consider using this dark brown in a hall or transitional area to make the rooms coming off it feel much lighter and brighter. London Clay is also the perfect accent for both Elephant's Breath and Charleston Gray. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Skimming Stone

London Clay is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 51.

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 You get what you pay for... One of life's lessons that isn't always strictly true. It is with F&B. First time I've ever spent £100 on a tin of paint, but my goodness, easy to use, unbelievable coverage, silky smooth application, incredible look. We will never look beyond F&B in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this colour We wanted a warm colour to compliment the bath stone surround. Looks lovely, understated but also quite bold. Millionaire shortbread springs to mind!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm brown Painted my downstairs toilet and family bathroom this colour. It is amazing. I wanted a dark bathroom and this worked well. One bathroom has a window and the utility toilet does not so very dark in now natrual light areas. Have french gray in the utility and they work well together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from London Clay I used farrow and ball London Clay to paint over one wall in a room the walls of which were all previously painted in Skimming Stone. This is the darkest paint I’ve used and I’m very pleased with the results particularly in artificial light
