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 4.5 out of 5 by 39.

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 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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour I bought this paint for bathroom with great anticipation. At first a bit disappointing but after the second coat it turned so well out. It depends on light sometimes a slight pink touch but mainly a hint towards lilac. Finishing best I saw and touch against moisture in bathroom - love this colour and can only recommend Second time I use farrow & ball and really convinced by finishing to use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best colour since forever This is not only lovely paint, with a kind of luminosity you don't get with other makes, and a wonderful matt finish (in Estate Emulsion) but this particular colour is incredible. It's grey-lilac-white and goes with red, blue, white, and all sorts of other colours. I love it, and have it planned for at least 2 rooms, maybe more. It changes depending on aspect, room size and type of light, so I have sample patches all over the house. You know you've found a good colour, when you want to keep going with the brush! Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour, reflects the light magically My favourite colour ever. It is a kind of neutral colour and although a white, it fits in with pinks, grey and blues brilliantly. The light reflects off it differently on each wall. It is so interesting. The quality is amazing, as always from Farrow and Ball. I want to use this as a base colour all over my house but on saying that, each room would be so different and alive - I just simply love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle mauve grey This is a beautiful colour that I have used in my bedroom in two houses. The colour looks different depending on light and the time of day. One room was large, north facing and had several windows. It worked beautifully in a scheme of greys. It felt airy but not cold. The hint of mauve was restful and pretty. It works equally well in a smaller darker bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from magical I absolutely love this paint! It does come out a much stronger colour than on the sample card and is much stronger than it looks in the tin though. It is a magical paint which looks different in different lights. Mine is in a South East facing room and sometimes almost looks a pale grey when I come up the stairs and glance across at it. Generally it is a grey lilac colour and is simply beautiful, changing hues throughout the day as the light changes. The ceiling and woodwork are a white which enhances it perfectly. I would highly recommed this paint which went on well (over a white base coat).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pink bedroom I used the casein distemper and it covered a very patchy old lime plaster wall (after filling) and the finnish was lovely and even. I love the colour. Very link with a hint of lilac in a weat/east room which was what I wanted. Very pleased.
