Green Ground


A pale and fresh green

This refreshing green is a lightened version of Cooking Apple Green, created as a background colour to some of our prettiest botanical wallpapers. The paleness of Green Ground has a calming feel, so is well suited to use in kitchens to create a contented family atmosphere. Often paired with a bright white to enhance its colour, it can also be used on panelling with our darker Green Smoke to create a reassuringly historic look that seems as if it’s always belonged.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: James White

Green Ground is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 36.

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.


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.


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 Vibrant green as I wanted It took me very long time to find the right colour for our music/play/games room. I was looking for vibrant, but very pale green that would be warm and would give life to otherwise very dark room. I tried about 20 samples from different brands but made right decision. Everybody loves the colour. Ceiling is paint in white but I chosen to use pointing colour for the strip above picture rail and it is softer and goes well with the green. F&B paint as usual is great quality and good value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soothing Green I have to say, my computer monitor shows the colour as's not, it's a very pale green. So impressed by the freshness and brightness given to the room, I was tempted to throw away most of the furniture... fortunately, I didn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Welsh Dresser This colour paint transformed my old tired looking welsh dresser into something rather stunning and beautiful. Easy paint to use, colour out of this world....Just about to choose the next colour for the next pine project :0)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from all round excellence again from Farrow & Ball As usual, this F 7 B paint gave excellent results all round. Some paints from other suppliers may be cheaper but it is well worth paying extra to achieve the best results

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful, light, fresh colour speedy delivery from online order. The paint is beautiful both as to texture and colour. Teamed it with White Tie on wood work and deeper cream units which we didn't want to change. The large kitchen in our Edwardian house now looks fresh and springlike, very reminiscent of the green and cream schemes from the early 20th century without looking dated. Follow instructions regarding undercoat/topcoats to the letter and the result is excellent. Fully recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely peaceful green We have a grade 2 listed farmhouse and wanted a colour in the hallway which and would fit in with the beams and character. We chose green ground on the two side walls and James White on the other walls. We then painted the inside of the front door in Plummet and we are very happy. The paint covered like a dream (almost only needed 1 coat) and the end result looks fab. We’ve also since used green ground to paint one wall in our 5 year old son’s dinosaur themed bedroom and he loves it.
