Bone

No.15

A soft and stony grey

A soft grey with a touch of green, this stony neutral is simply named after the colour of bones found in the animal kingdom. Softer than Old White, Bone creates a timeless look suited to halls when combined with Lime White on woodwork. It can also be used to create a feeling of light and space when paired with lighter tones; or as a sympathetic neutral with our stronger, more traditional colours. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Lime White

Bone is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 58.

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 A whole new world of gorgeousness has just opened up to me! I've loved F&B for many years but never tried the Cassein Distemper. So I wasn't quite prepared for how lovely it would be on the walls. It looks so beautiful. The house is a 250 year old stone cottage with lime plaster. So this chalky look is perfect. Bone really suits the rooms (kitchen and living room) and I've gone for a more muddied/ muted over all appearance with the ceilings in Shaded White rather than Lime White . I think Lime White would be fresher and more "cottagey" but not what I was going for. The Shaded White ceilings with Bone are still very pretty but have an added hint of sexy too. Thank you F&B for helping me create the best beach home ever! I'll add some photos once the furniture goes in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super neutral colour to tone with other colour I painted a dated pine chest of drawers and replaced the pine knobs with black and white ceramic ones. The transformation is fabulous!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product as always I am very pleased with this product, I have always been pleased with farrow and Ball paints, and service. Bone is a beautiful colour. It looks like sludge in the tin, but don't be alarmed . It finishes to a lovely pearly grey, which changes with the light. I used it to up cycle and old stand, and I love the finished article Thank You

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect stony green We were looking for a pale sage green for our living room. After discounting Vert de Terre for being too deep and Cooking Apple for being too green, we came upon Bone as a possibility after reading the reviews. I think the description of Bone as a stony grey caused us to overlook it when in reality it has strong green tones. We are glad we discovered it because it turned out to be just what we had in mind. We are very happy with the colour, quality and finish of our choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great! Although the product has taken 3 coats, the finish is excellent on our kitchen walls. We decided to hand brush the product as using a roller did not really cover very well. Really pleased with the overall result and colour.
