Great White

No.2006

White with the slightest lilac hint

This elegant white is not named after a shark, but simply refers to how wonderful the colour is! Great White appears to be a very pale lilac when contrasted with our All White, making it perfect for children’s bedrooms when wanting to keep a fairly neutral scheme. Despite its red undertone, it is not the warmest of pinks. The inclusion of the merest amount of black lifts it to a wonderfully sophisticated shade with an extraordinary depth of colour. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: All White

Great White is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 47.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quantity of paint It was very useful that the small pot contained enough paint to cover a good amount of wall. This meant I was able to see exactly what it would look like in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful calm colour I used Great White Modern Emulsion on the walls and Wimbourne White Estate Eggshell on all the woodwork of my hallway. I’m so pleased with the result. The walls vary in colour from a light grey in the sunlight to a warmer lilac tone in artificial light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful North facing, sloped ceiling in my 20 year old son's bedroom. Great white is not a cold colour & works beautifully with stiffkey. Quality of paint is, as usual, brilliant. I always use F&B. 'Picky' son happy & so am I.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sophisticated Sometimes soft pink but has a grey/ lilac hint. Beautiful. Used on walls of drawing room standard Edinburgh Victorian Terrace. It’s pink for those of us who would never otherwise entertain pink or lilac.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely subtle colour We bought this to paint a bedroom in an old French farmhouse that had previously been a bright blue colour by the previous owners. It’s transformed the room, light fresh and looks bigger!
