Blackened

No.2011

A cool white

Our coolest white, with the slightest hint of grey, was historically made with the addition of lamp black pigment gathered from the smoke of burning oil lamps. Blackened sits perfectly with each of our Architectural Neutrals for a minimal look or stronger industrial feel. It’s particularly spectacular when used in Full Gloss within stainless steel kitchens, or when paired with All White for an uncompromisingly modern finish. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: All White

Blackened is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 102.

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 Looks lovely, nice subtle colour We chose this paint for some bespoke furniture we were having made. The furniture was installed in a recent new build which is very white. This colour sits alongside the white well, not being too harsh but adding a nice contrast. Really pleased with it and the quality of the FB range

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Blackened definitely has more of a blue tint to it but it compliments my room perfectly. First time using F&B and have to say it was a different ball game to other paints. It glides on and the finish is lovely, will be painting the rest of my house in F&B.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous I’ve always used Farrow and Ball paints and love this beautiful pale grey/white. I’ve used it all through my tiny old cottage with All White ceilings and woodwork. Absolutely love the clean look and contrast. Beautiful consistency and generally only need one coat. You get what you pay for. And the quality is what you get. Great delivery and well packaged. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful soft bluey grey Bought for our bathroom. Looks super contrasted with crisp white and natural beams. A subtle soft bluey grey colour that ensures the room still looks bright and fresh. Easy to paint with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sample I bought several sample pots of a similar colour to decide which one would be best for my new sideboard. I decided on Blackened as it seems a very pale grey and will be perfect. I am waiting for the finished article to arrive but will use these generous sample pots for other small items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely finish which brings out character I love the way the paint changes with the light. The end result is a quality finish that is traditional and subtle yet fresh and contemporary, bringing out the wood's features and adding character. I have used this colour on new wood ceilings in an old cottage, they have been transformed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour We bought two tester pots for the living room, Blackened and Strong White. In some lights Blackened looks very fresh and off white, in other parts of the same room it has blue-ish undertones, so it wasn't quite the right match for our decor. It's a lovely colour though. We've decided to go with Strong White because of the grey undertones.
