Eating Room Red

No.43

A rich burgundy

The deep blackened pigmentation of our Eating Room Red gives a rich burgundy finish with a wonderfully aged feel. This, our most elegant red, takes its name from the colouring of the red damasks so popular in dining rooms in the mid-19th century and reads almost like a saturated purple if you compare it to the more modern looking Incarnadine. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones 

Complementary white: Joa's White

Eating Room Red is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17.

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 Brilliant dark red So hard to find the right red to make our hallway have that “Morrocan” feel. This works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted! An old favourite of ours and the perfect choice for the dining room in our new home. The previous owner had used a contemporary colour, incongruous with the age of the property and its period features, in our opinion. By choosing Eating Room Red we created the warm, heritage feel we were looking for. It is important to use the appropriate Warm & Red Tones undercoat which appears a terracotta colour when applied. Two good coats of Estate Emulsion afterwards achieved the desired deep, overall colour with no show-through. Thank you F&B

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wonderful colour and great to use, but I must have had a bad batch The paint was very good to use, it was a pleasure to paint with and the end results are superb! Unfortunately there were a couple of problems, one being that the lids on some tins proved near impossible to remove and the second was that we must have had a bad batch as two tins of the paint had the texture of raw pastry with liquid standing on top. Despite the issues I will be painting the remainder of the house in F&B paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product pot size is something I would not be without I have eating room red on my walls. I have had a small pot to cover up the marks which happen if you catch it. The pot has dried out and nowhere sells the paint round here. I was delighted therefore that you sell the small pots. I know they are probably for testers but are a useful size for covering marks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly the 'aged' appearance I wanted I live in an 1820's cottage which had been given a 2013 makeover and white painted Windows. The gloss paint in Eating Room Red gave the frames an aged appearance which put them 'back into' the building. The white frames stood out and looked like the were recently fitted: exactly what they were. I now have a unified building without replacing the windows. I'm about to re-decorate the interior with F&B paint so looking forward to putting the character back into the cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dining Hall in Eating Room Red and Joa's White These two colours go really well together. The Eating Room Red is a lovely rich colour, but did take 5 coats on top of the undercoat to achieve the desired result.
