Folly Green

No.76

A strong but soothing green

While originally inspired by neoclassical interiors, Folly Green is easy to use in all sorts of homes, creating spaces that feel both relaxed and refined. This particular shade was very popular in the late 18th century, and strikes the perfect balance of strong and soothing in traditional and modern rooms alike.

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 Lovely finish Very pleased with the results although much lighter than I thought it would be. My decorator was reluctant to use it but turned out well even he had to admit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tranquil Green A strong but restful green which gives a relaxed but ccosy backdrop to my farmhouse style kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We have lived with this for 14 years... We have lived with this for 14 years across two houses and three redecorations -- using it for interconnecting sitting rooms in a Victorian house. It is a fantastic colour which looks bright in the daytime and cosy in the evening firelight. It casts attractive shadows and there is plenty of depth and complexity to the colour. It is an excellent ground for hanging pictures as well. We use it currently in combination with New White for woodwork including shutters. I think that is too creamy really and would rather have gone for a limier white like Cornforth White. For the second of our three redecorations [an insurance job] they used a non Farrow and Ball version of this mixed at a shop. Now we have the real thing on the walls again I can appreciate how flat and dull it had been looking before. That sounds like an advert I know but it is true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would buy again A wonderful, deep, soothing yet cheerful green. I used it in my bedroom. Two coats of eggshell gave excellent coverage on trim. Not too drippy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calming and Relaxing in my Bathroom Absolutely beautiful colour. It's advertised as 'Calming' and it definitely is. Painted the majority of my bathroom walls with it. The previous covering on the walls was a bright yellow - from previous owners! and my bathroom is furnished with a lot of gold and brass tap fittings and radiator so combined with the yellow walls it was as bright as a belisha beacon in there! I wanted a green bathroom and thought by using the Folly green it would calm things down somewhat. It has worked! The brass and gold fittings now look Vintage rather than bright brassy and I am sure it is down to the calming effect of the green. I love all the Farrow and Ball green shades but this one is perfect. I used Wimborne White as a contrast on one small wall only and ceiling which worked well, the rest I covered in this amazing colour. I can't recommend this colour enough and it went on like a dream with the roller!
