A rich teal

This rich teal takes its name from highly decorated traditional horse drawn Romany wagons. Often used in the intricate patterning of these beautifully painted homes, Vardo is so full of life and joy it seemed natural to name it after something renowned for its flamboyant colour. This bright colour works particularly well with reds or dark greys. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Shaded White

Vardo is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 149.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great colour the 'spot' on the pain chart does not do Vardo justice. On the walls of our dining room in day, the intensity of the colour varies with the light coming into the room whilst in the evenings, the depth of the shade adds to an intimate ambiance. I felt very brave choosing this colour but I'm so pleased I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most perfect colour teal I bought this paint for a new fireplace surround. Sick of white and grey and wanted to inject a splash of colour into the room - and this worked brilliantly. I searched high & low for the perfect teal before plumping for this shade by F&B and so pleased I did because it could not be more perfect! (The wall is Elephants Breath, also by F&B of course).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning depth of colour Bought this for my downstairs WC and the outcome has absolutely blown my mind. The colour is beautiful, deepening in some lights and showing increasing vibrancy in others. It is stunning. I used the F&B primer too, which I think has enhance the final outcome. Also used the paint to revamp an old ikea white laminate bookcase that's in that room, great outcome. The quality of the paint is second to none. Yes, it's pricey, but it is worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased 2.5l tin Tried the little pot on a patch then waited a week looking at it in different light and went back to purchase 2.5l tin. Did one very large wall and still have 2/3 of a tin left as its so thick it covers well even though we did 2 coats. Always insisted on F&B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing teal! I shopped around for the perfect teal and my decision finally fell on Vardo. It was easy to apply, the quality of the paint is top notch and packed with pigments and two layers was plenty. The end result is amazing, this is not just one colour but several, it shifts depending on the light and can be a rich, creamy petrolium in the morning just to transform into a enchanted-forest-green at night. I used Vardo for the bedroom and actually sleep better now, this colour is both flamboyant and yet strangely calming.
