A strong dark brown

Our darkest drab is named after the artisans who tan the hides and skins used to create leather. Tanner's Brown will read as almost black in lower lighting and is extremely useful to create a slightly softer look when used on the interior of fireplaces. It does, however, become browner in colour within well lit homes and exteriors due to its warm red undertones.

Key features

The finest ingredients

The finest ingredients

We’re dedicated to perfecting the art of paint. At our home in Dorset, we combine the finest ingredients, 75 years of experience and technical precision to help you create beautiful spaces that stay beautiful. Even in our colour rich paints, less than 8% of the tin is the colour. The other 92% is what creates the quality, depth and extraordinary response to light that transforms your home. 
 
Paint is like coffee. The colour is the froth on the top, but it’s the quality of the rest of the cup that makes it taste good. 
– Richard Ball, Farrow & Ball Co-founder 



We use twelve exclusive pigments, all specifically selected for their colour intensity. We take colour seriously, so naturally, we only accept the very best. By using these same pigments to make every colour in our palette, all our shades combine effortlessly, making it easy for you to put together a cohesive colour scheme. 

Deeper, richer colours

Deeper, richer colours

Packed with pigment for an extraordinary response to every kind of light.

We add generous helpings of rich pigment to create our signature look – deep colours with complex undertones. The same space that feels bright and airy in morning sun, can feel cosy and intimate by evening. Our teams design each shade under every kind of light, so it will be perfectly balanced in every setting.

Extraordinary response to light

Extraordinary response to light

We spend months carefully crafting and testing each of our paint colours to make sure they share our signature extraordinary response to light. This beautiful reaction to changing light, like bringing out different undertones or shifting intensity, is what makes our paint so special.

Interior and exterior finishes

Interior and exterior finishes

From walls, floors and furniture to radiators, skirtings and sheds, our range of paint finishes can help you transform almost any surface in your home (and outside it, too).

We even have multi-surface finishes like Dead Flat® and Full Gloss, so you can tackle walls, woodwork and metal at the same time. 

Our comprehensive range is comprised of paint finishes that not only look beautiful, but offer different practical benefits. Designed for a variety of different surfaces, each finish is compatible with our high-performance Primers & Undercoats to ensure exceptional coverage, adhesion and depth of colour.

Dark Tones

When it comes to using dark colours, the deeper the better. So, for an irresistibly inviting finished look, pair darker shades with our Dark Tones Primer & Undercoat. Based on the colour of Down Pipe, combining this primer with your topcoat creates an unrivalled richness and makes quite the statement.

Made with the same natural ingredients and pigments as our topcoats, our Primer & Undercoat is the crucial foundation for creating a rich, even and longer lasting finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old bath vanity update - WOW Ugly golden oak vanity turned into a beauty! Black nickel hardware is perfect compliment to Tanner’s Brown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this colour in my entrance hall and stairs I used Tanners Brown on the bannisters, dado rail and door frames in my entrance hall and on landing. It's stunning. Everyone who comes into the house loves it but cannot put their finger on the fact that it's dark brown: people see aubergine, or dark grey. It's so smart and warm, I'm kind of in love with it. Also going to use the leftover low gloss from the woodwork to paint a strip around the kitchen units on the walls instead of tiling, and then do Setting Plaster above on the walls. I think it will look fab. Deep chocolate, makes you want to lick it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Purple in the sun We painted a small dining room in Tanners Brown, and ended up immediately repainting it in another color. In the sun, it became very purple. It doesn’t feel very brown or warm.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Like coloured water! We bought this a while ago in the modern eggshell. We only just got around to painting a sample card, so we can see how it goes on. We did therefore not use the primer (although we bought some for the project). The result is simply terrible. The paint is really thin, and it appears to have hardly any pigment. It is like a watercolour wash! You can see all the brushmarks as well. I'm now not sure whether to go ahead with the project (stair railings). The colour is lovely and just what we wanted. It is very much like an extremely dark wood. We had been storing it indoors over this hot summer, so the tin got hot, but I can't see why that should effect the pigment - ie make most of it disappear into something colourless!
