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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Green smoke Gorgeous colour This is the first time using f&b, the service was great, product (tester pot) came quickly and brilliantly packaged. It is such a gorgeous colour, and coverage was lovely too. I now intend to have my kitchen cupboards in this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We love it! So glad that we splashed out on this colour for our bedroom and that we took the time and effort to prime with the dark tones primer first. The finish and tone is beautiful and we’re super happy with the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two-tone hallway We painted our Victorian hallway in Green Smoke and Mizzle with All White wood work. We’re very pleased with the colours and the finish and it really smartens our house up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous colour, fast drying and wipeable My mum swears by farrow and ball but despite this I have always resisted the call mainly due to the higher price tag. I finally caved and MY GOD IS IT WORTH THE EXTRA MONEY. Applies like a dream, dried in the space of an 45mins each coat, the colour is incredibly deep and rich and looks significantly better than the Valspar paint we got from B&Q to do our last feature wall. Worth the money hands down and it is wipeable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour After testing a few other greens, all very nice but not quite what I wanted, I decided to take a chance and order Green smoke for a feature wall in the playroom. I liked it so much that I decided to paint feature wall in the kitchen too. Best choice ever, the cashmere cabinets stand out beautifully and it looks very classy with rest of walls painted in Cornforth white (both in modern finish). The quality of the paint is brilliant, it was a pleasure to use.
