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 81.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted. This is the first time I have used Farrow and Ball and was not disappointed. I received 3 different samples to test and selected Blackened to use in my kitchen and utility. It was originally light beech units with aubergine walls. Great when it was first done but tired now. I really wanted something that would cover well and the kitchen fitters recommended F&B paint. Expensive I thought, but in hindsight very good value for money, Covering a dark aubergine colour was never going to be easy but it only took 2 coats and I love the way the colour changes in south east facing rooms form a warm white/grey to almost a bluish tinge which compliments the high gloss blue doors really well. Very pleased indeed. I just wish that I hadn't had to do it myself due to coronavirus conspiring against me so I could not have anyone in to do the painting for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it ! We made a large wardrobe out of wood & wanted to blend it into a white room, however not be white. After lots of deliberating & we selected Estate Eggshell Blackened No.2011. We love the colour, the finish is perfect, the application really easy & the contrast perfect. Also being a bedroom it was great that it is low odor. We did look at alternative brands however time after time we come back to Farrow & Ball paints however my home cant keep being Elephants Breath which I love. Thank you F&B & keep making wonderful products for our homes.
