Cord

No.16

A strong earthy neutral

This earthy yellow based neutral is so called because it is a stronger version of String, both in colour and use! Cord has a traditional ‘below stairs’ feel and works as the perfect kitchen unit colour with String or Matchstick on the walls. The warmly aged hue has a surprising strength of colour in underlit rooms, so is often used in studies and libraries. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: New White

Cord is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 60.

They are also certified child- and baby-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021).

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speedy delivery I purchased this sample pot of Savage ground as my usual supplier is quite a distance from me and in current circumstances it was hardly an ‘essential journey’. As always the delivery time was almost by return of post from placing my on line order. This is one of the reasons we use Farrow and Ball paint.
