Slipper Satin


A chalky off white

This popular off white takes its name from the delicate colour of silk used in traditional ballet slippers. Without cool blue undertones, Slipper Satin often reads as a pale grey chalk which makes for a perfect neutral on walls with darker Old White woodwork. Pair with other shades from our Traditional Neutrals for a subtle and sophisticated scheme. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Pointing

Slipper Satin is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 194.

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 Excellent choice After many samples of many different brands, Slipper satin gave us the shade we were looking for asa contrast against a deep mustard feature wall. The estate emulsion finish was perfect and as we were covering an existing magnolia type shade, 1 coat covered perfectly. V happy with service and product from F&B once again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous colour After considering lots of F & B options I selected Slipper Satin as the colour I would use on all the woodwork (skirtings, doors, door frames and some shelving) when I re-decorated the house I have just moved into. I am re-decorating the house from top to bottom using an eclectic mix of F & B emulsion colours but the house is relatively small so I wanted to use one trim colour as a unifying theme throughout and all the F & B resources (The Chromologist Insta feed etc) suggested Slipper Satin was a great option and so it has proved to be. I am using it very successfully with Light Blue, Skylight, Pitch Blue, Pigeon, Setting Plaster, Jitney, Skimming Stone, Shaded White and Calke Green. All in all Slipper Satin is a lovely colour which works so well with so many different colours. I use the appropriate undercoat and then 2 coats of the Modern Emulsion which go on a dream. Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful warm white I used slipper satin on the panels and whimborne white for the upper walls. It makes the room bright but not cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sample Pots I bought two sample pots of Slipper Satin for touching up, can’t understand why Farrow and Ball don’t do small cans of say a litre size or one and a half litres as it’s so expensive to have to buy two and have litres every time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great color We bought a house from 1890 ( neoclassic style). This color gives the walls a new fresh touch but looks like the walls always had that color!
