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 5.0 out of 5 by 28.

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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Paint I bought Cord originally 13 years ago - this purchase was to freshen up. Can't believe the lasting quality of this paint even after many washes. Would never buy anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use this product over and over again, year after year. Can NEVER be beaten!! We have had the outside of our property painted with F&B cord for many years and have always been pleased with the result. The decorator favours the ease of application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glorious rich colour It just oozes on and overnight deepen in tone. And depending how the light catches it, it changes in depth. It's simply stunning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from interesting colour under grey skies used on exterior woodwork against Dorset stone. Under strong sun it seems cream but with poorer light it has more of an interesting green/ brown tone to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour on ceiling beams A lovely colour on our beams and the frame of our window in the kitchen. We used New White on the walls which looks very good against the light oak kitchen units
