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

Product Information 
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 132 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

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 Love it! First time users of Farrow & Ball but definitely won’t be our last. Yes you pay more for the paint but it really is worth it, this is a quality product. Paint goes on easily and covers really well and we are so happy with the finished product. The colour changes depending on the lighting and has such a deep warm feel

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous green that goes with everything Having read some of the reviews I was a bit nervous about my choice (too dark, problems with colour transfer) but I shouldn't have worried - the results are amazing. Its a a stunning colour, makes my room feel really warm, looks great in different lights, ranging from a bright green avocado to darker olive. Its so stylish. The walls were already magnolia and we didn't use a dark undercoat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This colour looks fabulous I was attracted to this colour by seeing it in the F&B 9 new colours publicity material. I have a very light kitchen with lots of windows/skylights and white ceiling etc so I was keen to try a bold colour. It has really worked. It took 3 coats for the painters to make sure it looked good. 5 litres was enough for the room. It really looks great against our oak windows - it's cosy and classy. There's one tiny patch that doesn't look perfect but I think that's more the problem with the plasterwork/wall than with the paint. We used Modern Emulsion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dramatic Green A wonderful dark green with a very slight yellow tone. Our dark, relatively small lounge, looks cosy & dramatic. My very own boutique hotel living room.
