Slipper Satin


A chalky off white

This popular off white takes its name from the delicate colour of silk used in traditional ballet slippers. Without cool blue undertones, Slipper Satin often reads as a pale grey chalk which makes for a perfect neutral on walls with darker Old White woodwork. Pair with other shades from our Traditional Neutrals for a subtle and sophisticated scheme. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Pointing

Slipper Satin is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 168.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transformed Fire Surround! Wanted to paint a mahogony fire surround in a house we are renovating for our daughter. Applied F&B primer and undercoat and two applications of the slipper satin eggshell. Beautiful fire surround that she is able to keep as it now fits in with her decor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much more perfect than I had hoped! I actually bought this on the recommendation of the lady in the Henley shop. We painted all the woodwork and banisters in the hallway and there’s not a day goes by without me thinking what a great shade it is! I’m not normally remotely excited by shades of white or variations of white. Now I am! It perfectly complements the stripped elm beams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and clean result! When refurbishing our flat I searched for a soft, chalky white and found Slipper Satin. We have painted two bedrooms with this colour and so happy we did. It gives a calm, clean, elegant impression. Timeless... We painted with a brush. Scurtings boards, doors, windows are all eggshell (warm white colour) and makes a perfect match! I love F&B!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning easy warm neutral I had bought numerous tester pots before settling on this beautiful neutral off white. Though to say off white diminishes the depth and change of this colour throughout the day. I love love love Farrrow and never get the depth with cheaper products. If you have lots plants this is stunning colour also works fab with woods and winterbourne white. Farrow and Ball have succeeded again, my only problem is picking a favourite colour. I wouldn’t buy paint from anyone else. Please be advised tester pots give you a view but the real beauty is when you paint F&B on mass!
