Soft Distemper

Named after the circular currents enjoyed by wild swimmers as a natural jacuzzi, this is a lighter shade than French Gray – or a greener alternative to Cromarty.  

This traditional distemper has an exquisite, soft, powdery finish and is recommended for very detailed interior plasterwork. Its blend of natural resin and minerals means it can be delicately applied, allowing detail to be preserved on intricate mouldings.

Key features

Very matt

Very matt

This traditional delicate distemper has an exquisite, soft, powdery finish and is recommended for very detailed interior plasterwork. 2% sheen. 

Our deeper, richer colours are available in a range of finishes with different sheen levels. Sheen always affects how colour appears: the same shade in gloss can look very different in matt. That’s why we specifically adjust the formula for every finish to make sure the balance is exactly right and you get the colour you were expecting. Our colours and finishes are formulated together, so you simply can’t have one without the other.

100% water based

We’re proud to have been the first in the industry to transition to a completely water based range back in 2010. As a result, all of our finishes, including our tough trim and floor paints, are made with a low-odour, low-VOC water base that scores A+ for indoor air quality. 
 
Plus, our water based paint doesn’t discolour over time like solvent based paints can. So your spaces stay beautiful for longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great result The prefect colour for our hallway, stairs and landing. It looks great with Wimborne White ceilings. I followed the recommended process and the paint was a joy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calming Eddy This is a very soft, gentle colour. We have it in our downstairs bathroom and main bedroom. It works particularly well on paneling, everyone comments on it when they visit the bathroom. Like all F&B colours it changes in natural light. Creates a very calm atmosphere. Paint very easy to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eddy in Dead Flat I simply love this colour, it is so beautiful! I painted my dining room yesterday (not completely finished so I’ll add photos later). The dead flat paint was a joy to use and the result is outstanding. It is as the description - such a calming colour that reflects nature. Thank you F&B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft but warm pastel I chose Eddy to paint the tongue and groove panelling in my farmhouse bathroom. I paired it with Wimborne White walls/ceilings and a pale mushroom (non FB) which already existed on some of the trims etc. I'm so pleased with the result - the green is a lovely subtle pastel, warm (I don't like mint greens) and not overpowering (it's a small room), it really seems to bring the outside in!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buttery soft, soothing green After buying 14 samples of green color (8 Farrow&Ball, 6 others) I found Eddy for my kitchen wall. The most soothing green color ever. I catch myself staring at it; Eddy is barely there but so present and relaxing. I cannot define this shade of green as it does not have (at least not to my eye) any obvious undertones I found in other colors: blue, gray, yellow. I am planning to add Feathery Grass wallpaper (black/green combo) on a feature wall in my kitchen. I should also say it was our first-time painting with Farrow&Ball . Amazing quality !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ended up more gray than green than my sample I tried out many sample colors to try and find the right paint and ended up feeling disappointed I chose this one. I think it’s a very changeable color which is nice, when I had the sample up it changed from light green to light blue depending on the light (all with a muted grey undertone that felt sophisticated). However after painting the walls and ceiling I am left feeling disappointed with how gray and neutral it feels. It’s hard to get the green/blue vibes I got before. Normally I love all the farrow and ball paints I’ve used before but this one feels like an expensive mistake in my space. It’s not a bad color but not right for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dodgy batch The paint I received was very thin and watery. Bought another in a local shop and it was a completely different texture. For the price of paint clearly not enough checks being done on quality. Very disappointed.
