Fawn

No.10

A timeless green toned neutral

Fawn is our interpretation of a classic 18th-century tan. Originally, this colour would have been used across both walls and woodwork, however Fawn’s underlying greenness means that it also sits beautifully among lighter shades from our Traditional Neutrals group, or on exterior surfaces where it can mirror the tones of surrounding greenery.

Fawn is part of our archive collection so sample pots are not available, and orders cannot be returned.

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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic colour, but hard to describe! We have used this colour on three walls of our south facing dining room, teaming it with Lichen. In some lights it appears olivey green, in others a deep cream - it is truly a beautiful deep colour which we have totally fallen for. The coverage was good and even, went on smoothly and finished to a luscious finish. It took two coats to produce the depth of finish we wanted and it was worth every stroke of brush and roller! The overall effect of the room is sophisticated and 'grown up'. We are true Farrow and Ball fanatics, using it in all our rooms and would rarely use any other paint product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLEASING CHOICE Excellent warmth and depth of colour; very cosy with a subtle apple green hint blended with the biscuit hue. Works well in our north light study with William Morris curtains and renovated medium oak varnished floor boards and rugs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am never disappointed with Farrow and Ball paint. I have used Farrow and Ball paint in four homes as we moved a fair amount over the past 10 years. I have never been disappointed, only thrilled with the results. I once had Benjamin Moore paint color matched to try to save a little of the cost and ended up repainting the room with Farrow and Ball because the difference was clear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great neutral, works with earth tones as well as classic crisp neutrals. Great colour, looks great with earth tones or crisp neutrals like navy, black and white. In some light it looks like a warm taupe and in other light it has a greenish undertone, but it always looks great. Estate emulsion brought our textured stucco walls to life and you can put almost any accent colour with Fawn. Works with modern, traditional or rustic style rooms, a very adaptable and beautiful colour. Painted it three years ago and don't think I will ever get tired of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Result Used this on my cottage walls in the sitting room. The room has a low ceiling ribbed with beams and is quite a dark room. This colour looks fabulously sophisticated, adding warmth and depth without making the room too dark. I'm really pleased with it. Also used it on the concrete floor as a base to a large rug. It has worked surprisingly well. I am really pleased with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not at all like the colour swatch...its green?!!! I had to buy 4 testers to find a grey green colour like the one I wanted. I originally wanted the shade called 'blue-grey'in farrows range which actually looks a little more like green grey not blue grey anyway but it was too dark. On the tester chart, FAWN is a very warm peachy beige...in reality it absolutely is not...its a cool classy grey green like the shade I was seeking Its a beautiful and I had my kitchen built and painted in it. I cannot fathom why the farrow and ball swatches are not even remotely like the actual paint. It may as well have been called cherry red. But it is a divine shade. Always , always buy the testers with farrow as I find the colours have a much stronger green tinge than other paints. Maybe thats what I love about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Visitors always comment on this lovely colour I have this colour in my dining kitchen and visitors always comment on how lovely the colour is. Through my eyes it has a very slight green tinge, rather than beige which you might expect from a colour called fawn but I love it. It's not too light but always looks bright and warm and is good for any room in the house in my opinion. I've had it on my walls for about four years and it still looks great and as always with F&B paint, it's easy to wash down and also touch up without leaving a mark as long as you stir the tin well. I know the paint costs a bit more than some other brands but it's definetly worth it.
