Brassica

No.271

A dark and sophisticated lavender

Brassica’s rich lavender tones feel both feminine and charming in light areas, but become much more sophisticated and grey in darker areas due to an underlying hint of black. Named after the group of plants which includes purple sprouting broccoli, this warm shade lifts cold feeling rooms without being overtly red. It is often combined with Elephant's Breath and Skimming Stone for a rich, contemporary feel. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Great White

Brassica is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 42.

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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The chart dose not justify the true colour This is a stunning colour working well in light and dark areas, it is rich and used with brilliant white really makes it stand out, i have it in my hallway with both light and dark areas i would suggest using a sample to see the true colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lush This colour has a lush warmth to it, typically F&B it was easy to apply, covered well and is fantastically flat. We used it in a bedroom on a Victorian restoration and are really pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich colour I ordered the sample pot to make sure it was the correct shade. I was really delighted with the depth and richness of the colour. My decorators love using Farrow and Ball paint which helps a lot. This colour does make the room brighter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy! After having the front door of our cottage painted Lulworth Blue for over 10 years I was a bit apprehensive about what Brassica would look like. Used the dark tones primer/undercoat first which was really easy to apply and dried quickly. Delighted with the result, the colour looks like a warm heather/ lavender or a greyish heather depending on the light. I think it goes very well with the grey slate of the cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An easy to use paint I originally planned to use a brighter colour in my bathroom but am very happy with the way Brassica works with my white bathroom suite and tiles. I have used both emulsion and gloss and like the overall impact. The product is easy to use and goes a long way.
