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.


Our paint colours are 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 Always excellent We had this clout for years in our last house and loved it so much with the cooking apple green that we are having the same colours for our main rooms she in. We are waiting for line plaster to cure before we can apply it but really excited to see finished rooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best paint on the market! I have been using Farrow and Ball paint for many years. It’s a pleasure to use. Brushes are easy to clean after painting as it’s water based.....good for the planet! Well done to the makers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nursery I bought this paint for our nursery, as we do not know if we are having a girl or boy. The colour, I would not discribe as pale yellow. If fact it is quite vivd, but then it is a nice bright room to start with. Saying that I love the colour and am really pleased with the results, as with all F&B paints used so far.
