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 Perfect color I wanted a light grey. Not too yellow and not too blue. This works so well in my space and I couldn’t be happier. As usual this paint is so easy to use. Sulking Room on the fireplace and Stone Blue in the room behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish i'd Known About F&B Paint Quality Before First time using F&B paints and really impressed with the quality, much easier to use than some of the cheaper / thicker brands

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Estate Emulsion In general F&B paints are lovely to use but need an extra coat here and there for good coverage. The finish however is more than worth it. I chose this colour to combine with Hague Blue. I have re painted Hardwick White over Strong White as I found the combination too cold. H.White warms it up a bit. I just love using F&B paints. Estate emulsion has a wonderful finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour After trying a few sample pots I decided on 100ml Sample Pot Strong White No.2001, and I’m so happy with it. It has just the right amount of grey to give the walls a subtle colour.
