Charlotte's Locks


A deep and playful orange

Charlotte's Locks takes its inspiration from the flame red hair of our Head of Creative and brings a playful late 1970s look. This deep and dramatic orange is particularly spectacular when used in small areas with a sharp contrast either in All White or Black Blue - for the very brave, do try in Full Gloss!

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones

Complementary white: All White

Charlotte's Locks is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 96.

Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odor, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. They also meet child- and baby-safe requirements in accordance with The Canada Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations, Canada Toy Regulations (SOR/2011-17) – Section 23 and ASTM F963 – 17 - Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety.


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 Oriental Magic I thought an orange base would be too much for my ‘zen den’ but it is just the right colour and so warm. It makes the small room a beautiful restful calm space inducing real zen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth being brave! Contrary to our expectations this delicious colour did not make the room feel smaller or darker, but I would personally always use it in a space where I want to create a cosy feeling of informal warmth and comfort, such as a snug. As with all F&B colours it was a delight to use and one I will definitely return to in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Upcycle project I absolutely love this colour and I wish I had used it earlier as it is so rich and beautiful. I used Charlottes Locks to up cycle a rather boring wardrobe and as a result it is now the best best feature of my bedroom

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Charlottes locks My son loves orange and wanted orange in his bedroom - initially scared but found Charlottes Locks to be just the right orange - not too in your face - teamed with de nimes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the colour This is an amazing bold, bright orange. As a goth it reminds me of Halloween and pumpkins but also has a summery fresh feel. I teamed it with a William Morris inspired wallpaper on what was a very white, dark landing area with just enough walls pace to create a bit of art.
