Modern Emulsion

The lightest and most delicate of our pinks, this charming colour is inspired by the tacking thread used in Haute Couture ateliers.

Key features



Modern Emulsion is a beautiful, durable matt finish with 7% 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.

For interior walls and ceilings

Modern Emulsion is our super-tough, matt finish for interior walls and ceilings. 

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). Browse our full selection of finishes to find the perfect paint for your project.

Best choice for kitchens and bathrooms

Best choice for kitchens and bathrooms

Our expert chemists add a preservative to Modern Emulsion that protects it from mould, keeping moisture-prone kitchens and bathrooms looking fresh. So, although it makes a wonderful addition to every room of your home, it’s the best finish option for these steamy spaces in particular. 

Tough and easy-to-clean

Tough and easy-to-clean

Our super-tough superstar for washable walls, Modern Emulsion has a high-performance formula that makes it easy to wipe away spills and marks – not paint. We use high-quality minerals and strong binders to make sure it’s also resistant to knocks and scrapes. 

100% water based

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.

Toy safe

Toy safe

This finish is independently tested and certified toy-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021). That means you can and a splash of colour to toys, cribs and other surfaces little ones come into contact with. Our paints also have hardly any odour and don’t need any solvents to clean up, so you can breathe easy during application and beyond.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and worth the extra investment. Taylor Tack is a very subtle pale pink that adds light to a room. We chose the Dead Flat because it is robust and may be used on several surfaces. Farrow and Ball delivered my order quickly and it arrived in perfect condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Paint! This colour is beautiful, such a lovely delicate shade of peachy pink. Matches very well with the mural on the wall and looks fabulous. Goes on really well and only needed two coats to cover quite a dark teal colour that was on the wall previously. Brilliant product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! Painted the reception hall in Pink Ground, then the smaller hall in Tailor Tack (first photo) as it flows well from the Pink Ground which is slightly deeper in colour. I’ve just started the kitchen (second photo) - in Tailor Tack also. Current kitchen units are cream, and blue/grey. Tailor Tack is a very delicate shell pink in our house (mid 17th century, beams, low ceilings). The pink works well with all the wood. Used estate emulsion in hall and on the kitchen panel in photo. Will use modern emulsion for rest of kitchen. Using Wimborne White (for woodwork) with the Tailor Tack and the Pink Ground. So pleased with both colours! Love the chalky finish of the estate emulsion. Hope I like the modern emulsion too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint, great color This is a wonderful shade of pink that I used for my east-facing bedroom. It's just the right hint of pink that contrasts and tones nicely with my dark furniture. It covered the previously ivory walls in one coat and I think F&B made their estate emulsion easier to apply. I certainly had much less trouble with this than previous F&B decorating and I doubt I became a better painter. Go ahead, pain this beautiful color with confidence!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like soft sea shells I was so thrilled this new colour was released. I was looking for a way to warm up a hallway and landing without yellow undertones. It’s beautiful. As with so many F and B colours, it really does change with the light. Despite being ‘pink’ it is much more complex than that..and painting with F and B modern emulsion is a joy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft yet joyful office colour My home office is North East facing so this colour really warms the room in a light, happy pink. It’s modern and playful without being “girly”

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely fresh colour We have just painted our TV/play room in Tailor Tack and are very happy with the results. It’s a lovely fresh pale pink. It’s just what we were looking for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful Colour Adore this colour in the images online and wanted it to work so badly for us, but sadly in our hallway/ landing natural light is limited, which seems to enhance the pinkness of this colour - resulting in a very cotton candy sweet pink- beautiful but not quite what we are after but an absolutely perfect option if you want a soft pink and don't have too much light. So now forever trying to replicate the shade of Tailor tack in the images but that works in our setting. As always the paint glided on and was a dream to paint even swatches with - it was a clear contrast in painting experiences I'd been having when using cheaper high street brands (trying everything to get the perfect colour).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gorgeous colour, terrible quality! I bought this paint to decorate my newly plastered/ misted and primed living room. The paint is a beautiful colour and goes on very well however I can’t say anything else positive. The paint once dried, cracked and peeled off the wall in strips. It shows up all marks and if I try to lightly clean it, it takes the paint off. I have had to have the paint colour matched to another brand and repaint the whole room. I’m so disappointed with the quality of the paint given the amount it costs.
