ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

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.


QUALITY FINISHES

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Green gray beige - not white or milk but lovely As stated in many other reviews, definitely spend the money on a sample here. The colour is very dependent on the light and in my southwest facing room the skimmed milk is definitely green. Not bad, but you need to want that. Not bright but like the inside of an avocado. I had combined with dark grey curtains and antique table and dark wooden floor and the hubby found it “old fashioned” and “stuffy” and I get his point. However, the space is warm, comforting and lovely - just like at Nan’s... The compromise: the colour stays, the curtains and prints go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little hint of green in certain lights Bought this new paint in a sample pot. It has a little hint of green in certain lights. Very different, very fresh colour

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful light green colour Bought to go with Designers Guide wallpaper and the colour match was perfect. I did have to use 3 coats as opposed to most that are 2 coats, but it's a lovely finish and I am pleased with the outcome

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxing mellow shade Used sample pot and am really happy with the colour which, in my north facing kitchen, is a creamy pale mushroom shade, very mellow and subtle. Will be buying the full size paint in this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour I love this colour on the swatch and was confident it was light enough as it was classed in the white range. However, I’m not sure how. It comes out a lot darker and almost a different colour almost like a green. I would definitely buy a tester pot before you buy the big tin. It has turned out ok in my living room as I do have a lot of vintage pieces and furniture is antique and more darker wood so I am really pleased with it. But don’t think it’s a white it’s truly not just buy a tester pot to make sure you lie the dried colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skimmed milk We recently moved to a bungalow and wished to keep the colour scheme similar. We chose 3 F&B test pots. The skimmed milk is slightly darker than what we have but is warmer and perfect for our living area . We will be buying the full tin soon .
