A warm lemon yellow

Citron, as the name suggests, is a warm Mediterranean yellow which has a bright intensity in small spaces and is fantastically welcoming in halls. It is softer in well lit rooms but is perhaps a little too stimulating for the bedroom. Try contrasting with House White on ceilings and woodwork. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: House White

Citron is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 22.

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 This colour makes me hapoy Just by looking at this I get cheered up. A gorgeous yellow which isn’t ‘too much’. Goes well in our playroom with breakfast room green, Hague blue and Rangwali.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality paint We bought this to repaint our outdoor timber bistro table and chairs. The paint was easy to apply, and two coats did a great job of coverage. The colour is lovely, really cheerful without being over-bright. In our experience, if you buy F&B paint you won’t be sorry in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunny and bright! Bought this to do the house bathroom and it didn’t disappoint. The yellow has a great depth and whilst it’s a strong colour, Citron is also a very warm and sunny colour. Every time I see it, it makes me feel happy. Great coverage and easy to apply.
