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 157.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is fantastic Cornforth White is the most amazing colour and perfect in my eyes for the hall way entrance, stairs and landing area in our modern farmhouse. It completely compliments the polished concrete floor neither too brown or grey. Easily applied with good coverage, a real joy to know that it will be admired for years to come. Obviously would recommend. Love it and that’s saying something as I’m particularly fussy! Alice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the finish Cornforth White has been used in different places in our house. This time to smarten up the kitchen cupboards. First class job done, well pleased and adore looking at our kitchen now as we drink our morning coffee in the breakfast area...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great go-to calming nuetral We used to have this in the whole of our house (we only lived in a small London Victorian terrace so not that many rooms!) but as we got bolder we used different F&B colours for the rest of the house, but couldn’t bare to change it in our bedroom. It creates such a calming environment and really made our white plantation shutters and coving “pop” against its tones. It’s a lovely colour that changes depending on the light and always looked beautiful and serene and sophisticated. It’s a great choice if your not sure of what colour you want but want it to look great - it was my “gateway” into all F&B colours and was the first colour we bought - and one we will return to!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor coverage The colour of this paint is quite stunning but my painters reported that its coverage was poor and it will need three coats to complete. This also occurred with the old white I thought F & B was a high density paint?
