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 121.

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 Great result. My decorator loves the way this modern emulsion paint goes onto the walls and I am very pleased with the colour. My home now has a fresh and light ambience which is good for the soul.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the Nordic look! I used on the floorboards in a North-facing room to create the Scandinavian look. In contrast on some vertical wooden panels in a West-facing room it looks more grey...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional colour match Decorators used this product when renovating my kitchen. I loved the colour and was horrified when I later damaged a small section 18 months later. I purchased a large tin, expecting to have to re-coat the entire wall. The new paint was a perfect colour match, meaning I only had to repaint a smaller section. I applied paint with a paint pad and found that it covered well and applied easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another perfect colour and finish. Beautiful calming colour changes depending on light very slightly which adds to the overall effect, I would not use any other paint in my own home.
