Cornforth White

An understated grey

Neither too warm nor too cool, Cornforth White sits contentedly between Ammonite and Purbeck Stone to create a hushed and calming retreat. Named in memory of John Cornforth, the revered architectural historian, contrast with Wevet to enhance its grey qualities. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Wevet

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 3 shades of Grey We have used 3 brilliant shades of grey to do the whole house. We started with Ammonite in the kitchen and hall, moved onto purbeck stone in bedrooms and then tried Cornforth white in the lounge and dining room. I love all 3 shades of grey. Each one has its own appeal. The ammonite is a fresh grey. Purbeck stone a deep warm grey . The cornforth white is a warm easy grey that i love the most. I have now just ordered more, husband has a look of disbelief I can find anywhere else to decorate but i have. The main bedroom and i have picked cornforth white. And just to keep him occupied i have also picked ammonite to paint all the internal doors. Which look amazing. Really impressed with the paint as much as t.he emulsion. Basically just love my 3 shades of grey

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the colour I have used this colour before in my dining room and decided to carry it through to my lounge. It’s not only the colour I love but the overall effect of Farrow and Ball. My decorator tried to talk me in to a similar colour in another emulsion but nothing beats the impact of the actual F & B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint - not the right shade for us Gorgeous paint. We bought 6 different tester pots and found Cornforth White to be quite yellow so opted for Ammonite instead which is a greyer shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Product This is a really easy product to apply. It was pained onto wooden T&G walls which had already been painted cream and a second coat will be required which I had anticipated from the product description. I have paired with Pointing and it looks really fresh in downstairs loo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing paint This is the second paint tin I've bought after running out. The colour is a good match and is easy to use unlike other brands which can be tacky and lumpy. Its expensive but really good quality and makes painting easy.
