Vardo

No.288

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 132.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour so happy! I bought this colour for our front door as I couldn't decide on a blue as there were just too many shades to choose from. This colour is absolutely gorgeous, it's a rich tealy turquoise and so pigmented and looks great with the red brick and cream windows. I'd never used Farrow and Ball before, I'd always used Dulux but I struggled to find any exterior paint with a decent colour range on the high street so thought I'd try it. I bought the exterior eggshell version and it was so lovely to use, quite thick but didn't streak or run, went on like silk and dried quick. I am so pleased with the final result, the colour is so eye catching and unusual, I'm thrilled to bits and will definitely use Farrow and Ball again and soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent colour and overall look I bought this paint last week, having browsed BnQ for some shades. Our intention was a warm industrial look, and quite honestly this colour is the EXACT shade we were looking for. We paired it with white and a rose gold brick style wallpaper and it looks wonderful. There is a depth and warmth to the colour that wasn’t found in large hardware stores. I am so pleased we paid extra per tin than a b n q valspar paint; our sons toy room has one wall in Arsenic which has been a nice complementary colour in the other room. His bedroom is b n q paint and the overall finish is noticeably different to farrow and ball. Debating between colours and shades? 100% farrow and ball. For the kitchen upgrade next year, I shan’t even waste time looking anywhere else for colour...!! Good luck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous colour I bought Vardo to paint some shelves in my daughter’s room, it’s a beautiful colour and the paint quality is excellent as always from Farrow and Ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased This room was seldom used before COVID and has now become a full time home office -- I wanted a masculine and moody feel, the room and bookshelves were previously a very boring neutral. I took the suggestion from the F&B website to combine Vardo with Inchyra Blue -- was hesitant about such a bold statement but could not be more pleased with the result. Both colours change beautifully with the light, will be interested to see them in Spring but even in the Scots winter they are lovely.
