Charlotte's Locks

No.268

A deep and playful orange


Charlotte's Locks takes its inspiration from the flame red hair of our Head of Creative and brings a playful late 1970s look. This deep and dramatic orange is particularly spectacular when used in small areas with a sharp contrast either in All White or Black Blue - for the very brave, do try in Full Gloss!

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones

Complementary white: All White

Charlotte's Locks is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 47.

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.

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich orange colour We dithered over this for a while for a feature wall before deciding that we couldn’t find another orange we liked as much. We applied two coats with the recommended undercoat and we are very happy with the results. The idea is that it will give a warm glow when the sun sets during the summer but we will have to wait a while to see that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Front door It took 9 coats of the egg shell exterior paint to get the finish we wanted. We used a professional decorator. Really pleased with the end result. Exactly the right shade of orange and a great depth of colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much colour! Farrow and Ball sample tins are so generous that you can really see what your space will feel like if you use the colour so I’ll definitely have the courage to use Charlotte’s Locks when we get to the exciting part of our house renovation. As usual with F&B paint there is so much pigment, the end result is so rich.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing color but use the correct undercoat love this colour used it for a few a clients, it is ESSENTIAL that you use the correct undecast or you will spend a foutue (labour and materials) on additional coats. Been there, done that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Landrover. New look. Our old defender has been modernised. He’s now a glorious orange and black. Our village roads now graced with head turning style thanks to Charlotte’s Locks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful My first F&B wall. I wanted something different, bold and warming in a north facing room and needed to work round the painting my partner did for me. Having turned the place into a patchwork of match pots I kept being drawn back to Charlotte’s Locks (partly, tbh, because my son married a Charlotte last week - although she doesn’t have red hair). The staff in our local Tunbridge Wells F&B shop were brilliant and suggested I pair it with Dimity. 2 coats of modern emulsion covered perfectly. I’m thrilled.
