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 Natural neutral Perfect neutral. I don’t like cream/magnolia whites. I was tempted by Wevet but Salt is warmer. Used it for hallways

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We loved the Californian colour palette straight. We took a risk and ordered the colours salt and hazy without getting samples. The colours are gorgeous together and had so many people asking where we got our paint! Also the paint drys very quickly, doesn’t leave a strong smell and a little goes a long way as it’s great quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely I absolutely adore this colour, I’ve used it on my bedroom ceiling with hazy blue on the walls and it looks stunning, lovely and fresh without being clinical. So much so I’ve decided to use it in other areas off the house. The colour card is true to the real colour

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So crisp but not blindingly so Love this new colour Salt. I have used in my new kitchen extension where I wanted a bright, crisp finish without the harshness or blueness of pure white. A great partner for cornworth white and ammonite. Decorator said the coverage was incredible also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brill for North facing I'm in love with this new colour. Marked down 1 star as I took a bit of a gamble because the sample was not big enough to show me what it would truly look like. Agree with other reviewers that the samples are extortion. Colour is fab though. I'd been searching an age for a neutral that wouldn't look cold or too creamy in my North facing house and this is it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unexpected Ordered the sample's expecting their sample pots without really paying attention, was a little surprised to get the sample cards but found them very useful to position in prime areas of the wall at different periods during the day to see the colours in different light. Have now ordered some of the paint and lucking forward to seeing if there is a difference.
