Duck Green


Duck Green is from our new Colour by Nature palette, created in collaboration with the Natural History Museum to bring the true colours of nature into your home.

A smart deep green

Named after the deep green plumage of a mallard, Duck Green is a wonderful reminder of the exquisite colours of nature. Strong but subdued, it offers a contemporary alternative to charcoal shades for modern homes, and makes a warm and welcoming pair with Deep Reddish Brown on woodwork.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Ash Grey

Duck Green is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 122.

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 Superb Colour I bought this to make a feature wall in the lounge. I paired it with cromarty. The colour is a really rich deep dark green. It has slightly more yellow pigment in the colour to give it a depth of colour. It's lighter than studio green. It has an almost shiny surface when first put on but this changes as the paint dries. As we could only buy 2.5 litre tins we kept the rest to use in a bedroom. On taking off the lid the paint smells almost mouldy. I am not sure it that's how we stored the paint or not. However, upon stirring the paint seemed fine and the smell disipated when it was on the wall. For anyone looking for a wow, this is a great option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Paint Colour We recently renewed our kitchen worktop for a white granite one with a fine grey vein running through it. Our kitchen is plain white & ten years old. It really needed a bold colour to revive it... and boy did Farrow & Ball Duck Green do just that. It looks like a brand new kitchen! We are so pleased with the final result. Thank you Farrow & Ball! Would highly recommend their product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm now a convert to posh paint I though fancy paint was just about the sophisticated shades. How wrong I was. Not only had my study been transformed, but this is the finest paint I have ever used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect green This was my first ever F&B purchase and I’m completely hooked! The paint goes along way and also dries very quickly. The colour of green is perfect - it is literally the colour green of a duck or of a dark green house plant which you can see in the picture.
