A chalky mid tone

This mid tone off white is one of the original Farrow & Ball colours - an uncomplicated name for a timeless classic. Off-White sits within our Traditional Neutrals so works perfectly with Old White, Slipper Satin and Lime White. Its underlying green gives it an unsurpassed softness, creating a chalky and traditional wall colour or a sophisticated woodwork tone. Off-White is also great for use on floors, bouncing light onto the walls while retaining a soft, warm feel. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Slipper Satin

Off-White is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 77.

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 Lovely finish I bought this paint in an off white to paint my worn engineered oak flooring in our conservatory. Two sandings, 3 under coats - recommended with this paint and 3 coats. It looks fantastic. I did the skirtings and cills the same colour and the walls a warm mid green. Amazing transformation. My conservatory has a much more modern scandi look. The paint goes a long way

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy Color I bought several samples to choose a color for my wood porch floor. I love the consistency of the F&B paints and they cover almost completely with one coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off-White Having received the sample which is of high quality we decided to go for something which makes a statement when you enter the room so we used Sudbury Yellow

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Fails to Impress This is simply my most favorite F&B colour - and trust me I’ve used a lot! It has the ability to look white, grey, green in the turn of a second. If I could I’d have it all over the house!
