Calke Green


A traditional sage green

This rich and traditional green is a cleaned version of a colour originally found in the breakfast room at Calke Abbey. It is best used either on its own on both walls and woodwork, or with a darker neutral like Old White to enhance its deep sage notes. It is particularly suitable for smaller rooms and studies due to its dark and masculine feel. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Slipper Satin

Calke Green is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 129.

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.


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 colour and finish Super happy with the colour and finish, gives such a relaxing feel to the room. Prepared the walls with two coats of Farrow and Ball undercoat. Also think it works well with the pavilion blue wardrobe doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful shade Used Clarke Green on new shelves and alcove cupboards built by my husband. Room is north facing but this shade works wonderfully. Also used White Tie on the newly panelled walls. Have been using F&B paint for years now and it never lets us down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint We brought this to update our bathroom and we were very happy with the finish. It’s a Tudor house and the paint fits in really well. Highly recommend so easy to use, only took two coats, very easy paint to paint on walls

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a beautiful, warm colour. 'Changing rooms', bedroom becomes study and vice versa. The study was in 'Cabbage white', much too cool for a bedroom. So, although the bedroom is now north facing, finally decided on a dark colour, Calke Green for the walls with a Lime White ceiling. It's beautiful! The wall colour has so much depth, it's amazing. I often try to choose other than F&B because of the cost but it's never right, my whole house is in F&B!
