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 4.3 out of 5 by 35.

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. For further information about our products, including guidance on safe use and application, click here to view our advice pages.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bit disappointing Not very impressed with the finish. It’s already starting to chip around the key hole. It was put on by a professional using the farrow and ball undercoat. Disappointed as not up to the usual Farrow and Ball standard. Will continue to use Farrow and Ball paints for internal work, but won’t use their exterior paint again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour, beautiful paint This was my first experience of Farrow and Ball paint and I am delighted by the beautiful colour and quality of the paint. It looks stunning as a feature panelled wall surrounding a log burner. Will certainly be back for more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So we did something a bit different with the paint..... Used it with sand free seived grouting powder to make a colour coordinated chalk board. Matches our freshly painted kitchen cupboards a treat. Result!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This paint was absolutely dreadful. I expected a gloss paint to be oil-based and a water-based product simply doesn't do the job. I've always had great results with F & B and one of the main advantages has been that only one top coat has been necessary. Sadly, this was not the case with the Calke Green. It went on very patchily, was difficult to brush out and didn't dry to an even gloss at all. People said, 'that is just the undercoat, isn't it?' And before you ask, yes, I used the appropriate dark undercoat beforehand. I am really disappointed; eventually i went out and bought a can of Crown gloss, which did the job beautifully with one coat over the awful mess that your paint had made of my door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning dining room colour There was a lot of resistance from other people for me to paint my small dining room this colour (change from off-white) and now they can't stop complimenting it! It looks phenomenal; real depth of colour and such a quality look. I can't wait to get stuck in on another room with Farrow and Ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour I used it with pale pink walls in my dressing room. Wonderful combination - feminine but not frilly!
