Cornforth White

No.228

An understated grey

Cornforth White is the mid tone in the group of Easy Neutrals which are totally understated and extremely versatile. Neither too warm nor too cool, Cornforth White sits contentedly between Ammonite and Purbeck Stone to create a hushed and calming retreat. Named in memory of John Cornforth, the revered architectural historian, contrast with Wevet to enhance its grey qualities. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Wevet

Cornforth White is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 273.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful paint First time I've ever tried a Farrow and Ball paint and I couldn't be happier - the colour and coverage is like nothing else and the chalky matt finish is just beautiful. I'd never used a F&B paint before due to the cost but decided we'd treat ourselves as we were painting a special room - I can now completely understand why it's priced as it is, I've never used paint like it - even after one coat the room looked transformed - I think I'm a Farrow and Ball convert for life!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goes on really well After years of trying lots of other paint, I was recommended to try Farrow and Ball and now I don’t use anything else. The colours are true, it’s lovely to paint with, the brushes clean off well and it keeps really well in the tin for when you need to touch up again. Overall I can’t fault it and I now have it in every room in the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour I’ve used this colour in the kitchen, bedroom and on the landing. I’ve used other F&B colours around the house. It’s always my first choice of paint when I’m decorating and I’ve been using it for years. Fantastic paint.
