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 28.

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 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 Rcih colour! I bought a sample pot prior to painting. Although in my room the sample paint color looked very different to the website and color card, I still loved it, bought the full sized tin and painted my bedroom. Definitely buy a sample pot first as the amount of light in your room can greatly affect how the paint looks! Beautiful quality paint-no odor and fast drying!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb colour and finish I am so pleased with this product. I have always used Farrow and Ball Estate Emulsion in my current home but this was the first time I have used a darker colour in my living room. Delighted with the finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very warm. I used Dead Salmon in my dining room, and initially I was unsure about it, as it looked quite dark. But now the whole room is done, I love it. It has a really warm feel, and a pinkish hue. It also looks lovely against dark wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect to compliment rose gold marble wallpaper Im so glad I chose this. It compliments the rose gold quartz marble wallpaper we’d chosen as a feature wall in our hallway. We love it and so did our decorator

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Farrow and ball paint ! Chose this colour for a garage door that is in view from house. It blended beautifully with brick, so with planting’s in place, the area was softened. No more ugly white door!
