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 4.7 out of 5 by 47.

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 Perfect as always Always use F and B, best richest colours used with Calluna in front room which is very light. Clean and fresh but very warm looking with my darker furniture. Couldnt be happier!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just love this colour We actually don’t have the final coat on the walls yet but I thought I would reply to the request for a review anyway… I’m just loving it it will be absolutely perfect in our new extension and in the kitchen end of our extension I’m going to use Calluna which we have used in our upstairs bathroom and I also simply love. Brassica is almost a darker version of Calluna, in my opinion they go together beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous shade Just finished decorating my downstairs cloakroom in this shade ‘brassica’ estate emulsion after having it in very pale barely there ‘blackened’ - adds depth, drama and elegance when combined with black and silver and a tiny pop of yellow - first photo is natural light and second artificial- it has no windows! Coverage in two coats - beautiful flat matt finish very pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scrumptious colour Warm and almost edible colour. It makes my bedroom very calm and luxurious. I was apprehensive about this colour to start with but I’m absolutely delighted with the result. Paired it with skimming stone! Best paint on the market!!

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.
