Dead Salmon

No.28

An aged salmon pink

A subtle shade whose name refers to the flat or ‘dead’ finish of an aged pink painted at Kedleston Hall in 1805, Dead Salmon has a magical quality to it as everyone sees it differently. Be it a strong mushroom steeped in history, or a warming buff neutral, this deep salmon pink creates the most subtle and serene of environments suitable as a backdrop in candlelit dining rooms. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones

Complementary white: Dimity

Dead Salmon is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 42.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dead nice colour ;) I ordered this a while back for my south facing spare bedroom, and it’s lovely. I’ve always loved farrow and ball for its depth of colour and ease of coverage. Definitely recommend, definitely buy a tester pot to be safe, but the colour is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shade for walls Chose this paint (Dead Salmon modern emulsion) for the interior walls in my utility room as wanted quite a dark colour that didn't shown up marks or dirt too easily. this is perfect - lovely deep interesting colour and works wonderfully against the white (Ponting) of the cupboard doors & all the woodwork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless colour Used on several items of furniture few years ago. A neutral but not a boring colour. Contrasts well with white. Bored during lockdown so tried on kitchen cupboards ..pleased with result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I bought this colour as a bit of a risk as the rest of our house is decorated in soft pale colours, but our sitting room faces north and with an extension added lacks a lot of natural light. I’m so pleased I chose dead salmon it has transformed the room into a cozy snug! It works beautifully with our mid toned furniture and compliments our art work. We used pointing on the woodwork as recommended by farrow and Ball which compliments beautifully. It took two coats to cover and the quality of the paint was excellent. I am over the moon with this paint!
