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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted with it! We seem to have quite a bit of paint left, we did use undercoat first but very pleased with the finished result. My husband is now planning what other rooms we can paint in Green Smoke.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Green smoke wow I’m in love!!! I seen Green smoke on Instagram, I’m a huge green lover so I thought how am I going to convince my husband to agree?! As soon as he seen it he said yes! So I bought a sample pot and then put in the order as it was perfect! Amazing coverage, just gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calming hallway. After playing around with a few lighter shades we went for it and chose ‘green smoke’. I’m so thrilled with the finish and colour. Compliments our ‘off-black’ doors as recommended by F&B. Loved it so much that we did the en-suite too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Green Smoke Blew the all the colours out of sight I bought 6 different samples and tried them all out before trying Green Smoke. I was so sure I was going to like the other samples. Specifically a certain Green Ground. As soon as I painted the Green Smoke colour. There was no competition. We have ended up doing our whole downstairs in F&B paints. Their hues can’t be matched

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Last minute change of heart from Calke Green to Green Smoke and I love it. It gives a beautiful depth of colour but still remains quite neutral. Very calming and stylish!
