Sudbury Yellow

No.51

A traditional mid yellow

This soft mid yellow takes its name from the staircase at Sudbury Hall, where renowned colourist John Fowler used this shade to such great effect. Sudbury Yellow is particularly responsive to changes in light, reading as cleaner and brighter in well lit rooms or softening in dimly lit spaces alongside a stronger contrast like New White. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: New White

Sudbury Yellow is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 78.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Interesting colour Nice warm cross between the various cremes and yellows. I tried to include pictures 4 times but have given up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad I took the plunge ! I normally use three variations of Farrow and Ball 'White' shades in each room in my house, but during lockdown decided to be bold! I used Sudbury yellow on the walls, with New White on the ceiling and wood work with House White above the picture rail in my 1930s house. The colours as suggested by F&B look great together and enhance my vintage wooden furniture, and wood floors. My soft furnishings are vintage leather with shades of red /burgundy cushions and throws - I mention this because the yellow really helps to create the vintage atmosphere I like so much. Definitely a change for me, but it is not too dark, and seems to change at various times of the day with different lighting.
