Dorset Cream

No.68

A rich double cream

Dorset Cream’s name conjures up exactly the right colour in our minds; a rich double cream made in the heart of the West Country. A darker and more yellow version of Farrow's Cream, it should never be used with a bright white but with a sympathetic Yellow Based Neutral like New White, to create a gentle warmth and charmingly traditional scheme. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: New White

Dorset Cream is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 58.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour for brightening up the main bedroom I bought this after searching through Dulex etc., to try and find a really good colour to add warmth and brightness to an otherwise dull bedroom that we inherited when we bought the property. Very pleased with the result. A bit expensive buying it online directly from Farrow & Ball. But pleased with the result. Excellent covering and hardly splattered off the roller.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality over quantity Only paint I will use. Rice in colour looks so good on the walls. Had a few scuff Mark's sent off for sample paint to touch up. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product I already had many walls in the house painted in F & B Dorset cream, and bought the sample pot in the same shade for doing touch-ups. The paint goes such a long way that I used it on lamp bases as well, with still most of the pot left. The quality of this paint is amazing: a dream to use and so easy to wash out of rollers and brushes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! This was a considered purchase for me, I had read the reviews and, if I am honest, couldn’t find the colour I wanted anywhere else, when I opened the can I did think oh god as it was quite yellow but now, once on the walls, it is a wonderful soft colour not bright just enough to fit in with our lounge, the consistency is lovely, went on really well, we did 2 coats but could have easily done 1 and it would still look great! I am really pleased with it and would certainly buy again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic paint, just not the right colour. I bought this as a tester pot but the colour was too dark. However, I managed to purchase a 500ml tin of Farrow and Ball's Farrow's Cream which I used to paint our living room. I am very pleased with the quality of the paint. It was very easy to apply. One coat was very adequate and so far very easy to clean as have a slobbery Great Dane at home. My only bug bear is I wish you had a larger variety of creams as need to paint other rooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and good service I have recently bought several test pots from Farrow & Ball. They were very easy to order online, and arrived quickly and were well packed.
