Calke Green

No.34

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 4.5 out of 5 by 85.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this colour I have been moving houses and painting this colour for ten years. I know this is mad but I love it. My passion for gardens comes into the house so this colour helps me create my indoor jungle. This colour says home to me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally the bedroom I wanted! Since moving onto my home 5years ago, the master was on its 3rd repaint.... I just couldn't get it right. After perusing the F&B site I decided to go dark! Lots of test pots later, I settled on Calke and it is beautiful. Classy and rich but still light enough so the room doesn't feel pokey. It reflects the light beautifully at all hours of the day and is easy to mix with other colours. As always, it went on like a dream and two good coats have given a gorgeous, deep colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second coat goes from nice to wow I tried this sample for my living room and at first it looked like green grass but when the second coat went on it was wow - as impactful as smoke green but not as dark for a small living room like mine - going with this one for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exterior Eggshell (Calke Green) A gorgeous paint - a muted sage green, which feels luxurious when you're applying it and which dries to a lovely soft sheen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour! I bought this 2 weeks ago. The paint arrived earlier than the mentioned delivery date. Very good quality paint and the colour was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely lovely! We have used Farrow and Ball for years and so we know what to expect – great coverage, brilliant colours and excellent service. This time everything, considering the circumstances with slower delivery times, Was just as good. The paint colour is amazing! We used Calke Green over the previous colour which was Cooking Apple Green, also from Farrow and Ball - We can highly recommend both colours but Calke Green is fantastic for the hall, deep, dark and rich.
