Farrow's Cream

No.67

A traditional cream

Our original cream is named after the paint pioneer who first founded the company with Richard Ball in Dorset, England. Farrow’s Cream is a pretty, traditional colour, with no addition of black pigment, which creates delightfully inviting rooms with a gentle warmth. It feels just as at home on the panelling of a 17th century hall as it does on the wooden cupboards of a relaxed family kitchen. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones 

Complementary white: White Tie

Farrow's Cream is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 57.

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 Quality Even my husband realises it is worth spending that bit more on a quality, easy to apply, product. Very pleased with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not all creams are made equal... Farrow's Cream has a wonderful depth of pigmentation, with a warmth that still retains the freshness of cream. We have used it on the walls of a rather dark sitting room in a sandstone cottage with thick walls and small-paned windows, and it throws back light into the room. Applied beautifully with excellent coverage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Timer ! Had always thought F &B to be rather trendy, overpriced paint.However I can now see why it is expensive.It is superb and superior!I chose Farrow’s Cream to repaint my inherited kitchen units.I love this gentle colour and it has transformed my kitchen.The coverage and finish of the estate eggshell is brilliant.I think I am a convert!Delivery also excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's ideal for country cottages. This colour has the ability to change in different light. Sometimes in darker rooms it takes on a greener hue. It's ideal for country cottages with smaller windows as a colour throughout the home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cream I was unsure whether to use Farrow's Cream or Dorset Cream in my south west facing dining room. I'm glad I chose the former because it is a beautiful warm 'clean' cream. I cannot detect any green tinge in it thankfully which was a bit of a concern. The depth of colour and luminosity (as ever) puts F&B paints in a class of their own and the Modern Estate Emulsion is my finish of choice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I am engaged on a high profile project where paint colour was very important. I settled on Parlour Cream and was very satisfied with the quality of the paint and colour hue. I went to purchase more for the next phase and was devastated to find it was no longer available. I settled for Farrows Cream as the closest I could get but it is not the quality or colour I wanted, and am deeply disappointed. I am now having to search other paint manufacturers for a closer match. I have spent nearly £25 for a much smaller (than the original) tin of a colour I am deeply dissatisfied with. Why do you discontinue a quality product and create so much disatisfaction? Can I get a refund please. It has severely damaged the previous reputation I held for Farrow and Ball paints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An impressive finish Farrow and Ball reliable as always. Good density of colour gave a really good finish on some rather old and abused stair woodwork.
