A rich teal

This rich teal takes its name from highly decorated traditional horse drawn Romany wagons. Often used in the intricate patterning of these beautifully painted homes, Vardo is so full of life and joy it seemed natural to name it after something renowned for its flamboyant colour. This bright colour works particularly well with reds or dark greys. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Shaded White

Vardo is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 175.

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 Superb & Calm Deep Green We have been trying to find a dark colour for our living room and we finally settled on Vardo. The colour is amazing, deep and calming and very elegant. The paint is such good quality, one coat and a few touch ups and we had it done in a day and a half. Thanks F&B, you are our go-to paint shop forever now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time user, long term friend! I bought vardo from our local DIY shop. I've never used Farrow and ball before, but it's absolutely amazing and high quality too. We did another two walls and we've wallpapered the chimney and alcove area. Everyone at Christmas, commented on how it's made the room look much nicer than the very plain white it had been.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with dark grey Our large open plan sitting room needed some deep colours to make it feel homely and Tanara at the Summertown store in Oxford was very knowledgeable and helpful. It looks stunning. Photo is panoramic and obviously not yet furnished but it gives an idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such depth of colour We recently painted our bedroom with this beautiful Vardo, and we love the result. Contrary to what some people warned us, it has not made the room feel smaller or darker. The colour is so complex and deep, it looks different with the differing light throughout the day and night, and really is stunning. Absolutely love it. We used a 5L tub and it easily did all 4 walls with 2 coats, with a 3rd coat for good measure on the main, largest wall. We were novices at painting, but easily got a good, even covering as the paint is such good quality.
