Wimborne White


Just off white

This just off white is named after the market town of Wimborne in Dorset and home to Farrow & Ball. Only a shade away from a pure white, the addition of the smallest amount of warm yellow pigment creates a very versatile shade which is just a little softer than All White. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: All White

Wimborne White is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 322.

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.


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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I LOVE this color Wimborne white is absolutely beautiful. It is a creamy white, in areas where the light doesn’t hit as much is looks really warm. It looks very well next to all white and you can totally tell the difference. Really happy that I chose this white for my walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely perfect off white The tv room had been painted in Hague Blue and whilst I love the colour, I decided to return to a lighter hue. After much deliberation I decided on Wimborne White and I’m really pleased. It’s a really old house and feels in keeping but whilst obviously white, it has a nice softness to it. Not as creamy as New White which I have in the dining room not as cool as this room was before (Strong White). Im really pleased and whilst the blue took some covering, it went on really easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect. Colour glows. Trying to pin down the right white for my bathroom with an art Deco mural in shades of green took time but Winbournne white is perfect. Love these quality paints and subtle colours.
