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 65.

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 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 Great Paint First time of using Farrow & Ball modern but was equally pleased with the ease of application and end result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I bought this paint to match my new carpet, switching from Ammonite (also a lovely colour) and it has worked really well & is another fantastic F&B colour. I only needed one coat, so the coverage was better than I expected too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We won't use anything else. I purchased directly from you again as my local stockist had run out of Blackened. I couldn't wait I wanted it now as soon as possible. We never use any other paint in our household. My husband won't use anything else. Even I can use Farrow & Ball paint without a problem with drips etc as I like the way it goes on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creating warm space I wanted to lose two doors to give the idea of a bigger wall, by matching the emulsion. This paint covers well, it’s well worth using the F&B primer as it colours over really well. I tried a.n.other well known brand and there is a huge difference ! It is low odour too. This paint has a nice sheen and the colour warm feel at nice whilst clean and crisp during the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to use, solid, fresh but soft too ! I wanted something modern that would match the accents in a wallpaper pattern. This paint has a very slight sheen that during the day is solid and fresh. During the late pm other hues come out, maybe very light blue, maybe slight violet. Under false light it is a warming white. I used it with inchyra blue on a feature wall to bring out the detailing of the paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blackened A concrete 1960s telephone Exchange in Penzance that takes full force of Atlantic storms - painted with All White and Blackened - went on beautifully - such great quality paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blackened, All White & Ammonite for a serene attic room I painted a 'rustic' Victorian wood floor All White Modern Eggshell in November. I was concerned that it might wear quickly and unfavourably. The ceiling and walls were painted in Blackened - a beautiful, and darker than expected, grey/white. It gives a very soft hue in various lights. The apex wall was painted in Ammonite. I used the appropriate primers under all surfaces and as usual, the paint was beautiful to use, and easy to apply, quick drying and easy to clean utensils. I was worried that grey might be a little cold, but these tones are really very soft and restful. Very happy with the combined effect. When I was attaching fixings there was some damage to the paintwork, but this easily remedied by touching up the paint and was invisible afterwards. Well worth the extra money.
