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 Amazing Colour I wanted to have a to have a floor paint to complement my wall paint Down Pipe 26 (Farrow and Ball of course!) Dutch Orange was my first choice. I am so glad I went for Dutch Orange. I ordered a 5L tin, I must say the paint went a long way I still have half a tin left. I have children, my youngest is two with severe eczema asthma, so it was important for me to use a paint which was not strong smelling , basically child friendly which Farrow and Ball ticked all the boxes. The paint dried really fast. Very happy customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and vibrant colour I bought this colour after much thought as my home is a listed cottage with a muted decor. I decided that as someone who loves colour I would take the plunge! I am so pleased that I did, I am delighted with the result. The entrance to my home is now warm and welcoming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vibrant Colour I bought the Dutch Orange colour for a feature wall in a predominantly white hall and stairway with oak woodwork and it looks fantastic. Great paint to use and apply. Only minor negative is that it took 4 coats to cover a white wall

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour that brings warmth into a space I hesitated after reading the 1*/2* reviews (mainly about how difficult it is to paint with). But I really love this colour so I went ahead and purchased it anyway. I used the F&B primer (3 coats) to prep the wall before I applied this paint. I really panicked after the first coat because it came out really patchy (I have to say I'm NOT a professional decorator). Second coat was slightly better but the colour did not look like the one I saw on the tin! Disappointed, I carried on. It's so much better after the third coat! In the end I had to apply 4 coats to deliver a desirable finish. It's worth it people. It brings so much warmth to your room and really brighten up our days especially during times like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm colour... easy to apply The Dutch Orange Modern Emulsion more than lived up to my expectations. The colour is warm, vibrant and quite unique. It was easy to apply, low odour and has produced a smooth, flawless finish creating a warm glow and breathing a cosy warmth into our home.
