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 4.5 out of 5 by 23.

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.


QUALITY FINISHES

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.

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Brilliant. Arrived very quickly after ordering. Colour exactly what I was looking for. No strong smell. Easy to work with and clean off. Good coverage with just two coats. Nice even finish. You get what you pay for. Only comment is that colour tester was only available in one type/finish which I was concerned about but all worked out ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour Bought bancha based on reviews, was quite worried at first because it was such a change from the previous colour, lamp room grey. But I love it! It works well with the fire place and I found ochre cushions a nice accessory. Only down side is it literally took 4 coats! And I still have a few patchy areas to touch up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour! I used this in a bright sunny garden room with a view and it looks incredible. The depth of the colour is a perfect complement to the garden and view beyond. It took one more coat than I expected, and it is just a small part of a much larger project, but I am so delighted with the end result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shade of tropical green Delighted with the rich olive shade of Bancha. Two coats and a touch up was all that was needed. I painted the wall behind deep oak shelves. The luscious green shade complemented the mid-oak perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Colour I bought this a month ago and painted my bedroom walls with it. I am so glad I chose this colour as it adds depth and the shade of green shifts with the changing light. Makes a smaller room feel more cosy and at one with nature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colour as expected. Painted the walls of my garage a couple of weeks ago. Masonry paint went on easily and was true to colour.
