Bancha

No.298

A protective olive green


This mid-century modern green is a darker version of the much loved archive colour, Olive. Perfect for those who want to embrace stronger colour in the home, its sober tone creates rooms that feel calm and serene - especially when combined with soft pinks and browns. Named after Japanese tea leaves, Bancha, like a cup of green tea, provides a feeling of security.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Shaded White

Bancha is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 65.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.

Every one of our paint colours is 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 Very luxurious This is my first foray into what could be described as F&B's bolder palette, having used Skimming Stone, Elephants Breath and All White previously. What a wonderful colour for our office, extremely handsome. The modern emulsion was a pleasure to use, very smooth and 2 coats is ample. I'm hooked on F&B now, a costly but satisfying addiction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic, just like paint Wow, who would think a tester pot could be so good, you can even get some paint out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sample pot that’s a great size (bancha) A fantastic sized pot of paint that’s absolutely more practical than those other testers we see on the market so I was able to paint a huge strip of paper in a couple of coats to be able to move it from wall to wall to see how the colour changed in the different light. No more painting tiny squares on the wall. Bancha is a wonderful green that induces a sense of calmness and tranquility. I’m using in a north facing bedroom it adds warmth brings colour to room making it warmer. Can’t wait to get the room done add some big plants and have like a wee oasis of calm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Colour I thought I was being pretty extravagant using F&B to decorate the utility room but in painting the doors this fantastic green in modern emulsion it has been transformed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks good. Sudbury yellow walls and ceiling, bancha woodwork. Looks good. The only pity is that a 1 or 1.25 litre tin isn’t available (and the eye-watering prices, obviously).
