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 341.

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 Wimbourne White is perfect! Wimbourne White is the only white that is not too cool or too warm. It is has no noticeable blue, green, yellow, or pink tones to it. I tried several other brands of paint and their whites/off-whites (even designer favorites) and none were comparable to the rich, and simple, Wimbourne White! Highly recommend this color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great finish I love the finish that modern eggshell gives a lovely soft sheen , used to paint woodwork and fireplace in my sitting room , found that applying 3 coats is what's needed for great even coverage

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time user I bought F&B estate emulsion whilst painting a late Victorian room. My entirely personal conclusions: 1) There was absolutely no 'orange peel' texture when rolled onto lime plaster. This surprised me - the finish is beautiful - velvet smooth and very flat. 2) It is very creamy and is an easy paint to apply. 3) It marks easily so live elegantly! 4) The colour is beautiful in a west facing room. It does look different under different conditions, but I presume this is true for any paint. 5) The colour suits the often wonderfully miserable British/Irish light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from White Wimborne Used this colour in my daughters bedroom. We love it!! The tone varies from light grey to light blue depending on light exposure. Easy to apply, and very good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best white This is the best white I used in my house (Pointing is a disaster). It can look a bit yellow at times, but it is fantastic in my North East kitchen (looks very pale soft beige), my sons East facing room (looks milky white), and my dark East facing dining room (I'm just not a fan of dark colours whatever the aspect!!) I just covered the pointing in my landing with it and it's so much better phew!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing paint Amazing paint. Used wimborne white alongside smoke green in an edwardian hallway. A warm white thats soft and welcoming. Keeps the hall bright but not harsh. The pigments in the colour make this my go to brand, I've used f and b all around my home and it never disappoints.
