A soft black
This soft black is one of the original Farrow & Ball colours - an uncomplicated name for a well loved classic. Off-Black is much more flattering to adjacent colours than stronger blacks because it feels so much milder in tone and has less of the underlying cool blue of Railings or Black Blue.
Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones
Complementary white: Blackened
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shea28 from To my surprise I purchased a sample of this Off Black, never look at a color with a little swatch, I had decided not to use this color. When my husband painted the feature wall in our dining living space he picked up this color. It was finished when I returned home. The outcome is Gorgeous!

Rated 5 out of 5 by HJ2503 from The perfect dark - not too harsh Dark with warmth. After a colour consultancy with Ross in Edinburgh, we’ve used off-black modern eggshell with school house white, mouses back and shaded white for our accents without the hallway/open plan kitchen living areas and really pleased with the colour and depth it provides without being overpowering
