The shade of unbleached wood
This versatile and understated tone is named after the unbleached wood used in the stalk of a match. With the tiny addition of black, this neutral timber colour creates delightfully understated rooms which are warm without feeling creamy. In well lit rooms it has a fresher quality, especially when contrasted with White Tie or other Yellow Based Neutrals, while feeling more relaxed and traditional in a darker north facing room.
Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones
Complementary white: White Tie

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.
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.
