Cabbage White


The slightest hint of blue

A subtle white with the slightest hint of blue, Cabbage White takes its name from the most delicate of butterflies. This palest of blues is perfect for rooms that go up into the eaves where you want to use just one colour on both walls and ceiling. This colour really comes into its own when contrasted with All White. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: All White

Cabbage White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 98.

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.


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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The colour was the best choice for the lounge. A few sample pots were tried and Cabbage White appealed most.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brighten an internal hallway Our hallway was, say the least, not the stunning welcome you would be delighted to share as people came to visit! I found Cabbage White by accident from a selection of sample pots I bought for the redecorate the spare room project. Not right for there, but teamed with All White has transformed the hallway into a bright, calming entrance to the home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brings Light to Small Spaces We used this colour in a small north facing bathroom and for a stairwell and landing in our cottage. In both areas we used the colour on the ceiling too and it has made the rooms seem spacious and airy and literally ‘lifts the lid’ off congested spaces and makes you think of fresh blue skies! The colour changes under different light conditions from a pale powder blue to a quite intense aqua, very beautiful effects. The paint goes on well and is nice to use, it makes the job easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely calming bedroom I bought this for a duck egg style colour for my bedroom which only gets a few minutes of direct sun at the very end of the day, its beautiful and calming. I'm a girl who tends to paint the world white and as my first foray into colour love it. I haven't posted photos as feel it doesnt translate and shows it more blueish grey and cooler which it's not think calming

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, but.... I have used Farrow and Ball before so was not expecting anything but the best quality. Cabbage White was a lovely colour but not quite right for where I wanted, so I am using Borrowed Light instead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour Just moved into our new home and put cabbage white on the walls of both our living room and kitchen. It looks amazing. Coverage was great and it went on so smoothly. We also used ‘borrowed light’ in the hallway. I am so pleased with the results.
