Vert De Terre


A delicate aged green

This fresh and incredibly soft green is reminiscent of the pigment green earth. With its blue undertone it creates the softest of atmospheres, being less intense and cooler than Cooking Apple Green but fresher and less grey than Ball Green. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Slipper Satin

Vert De Terre is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 164.

Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odour, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. They are also certified child- and baby-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021).

Exclusions: Casein Distemper, Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat, Wood Knot & Resin Blocking Primer & Undercoat, and Metal Primer & Undercoat.


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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic elegant colour and a superb finish. Used the Estate Emulsion to paint my living room and this is a beautiful colour. Subtle - looks a soft sage green in natural light turning more to blue in artificial light. The texture of the Estate emulsion is lovely, giving a flat matt chalky look. It may not be as resilient as Modern Emulsion but it looks so elegant. Also painted radiators in the same colour using eggshell finish and the paint is great to work with - silky smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosy bedroom! After trying many greens, decided on verte de terr to bring the outside garden in on our ground floor flat. The room doesn’t get a huge amount of light but this shade of green is just right. Matched it onto radiator and think it looks great.
