Hardwick White

No.5

A traditional grey


This traditional grey was originally created to touch up the old limewash at Hardwick Hall and doesn’t look very white to most, unless contrasted with strong shades like Off-Black. Less blue than Lamp Room Gray and with an unsurpassed depth of colour, Hardwick White’s rich and chalky hue sits just as well in a contemporary room as it does in a historic house.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Clunch

Hardwick White is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 105.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Painted my living room with Hardwick white. It just the right shade not too dark or light, very soft gray with hint of green. Very relaxing. I use a lot of F &B paint and it goes on very well leaving a lovely finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful subtle colour As with other F&B paint I’ve purchased, this did not dissappoint. This was the first time however, I’d purchased direct from the company, and it arrived very quickly which was great and rather surprising considering the current pandemic situation. It was well packaged, and the colour is just gorgeous. It’s a lovely subtle colour which I plan on using for upcycling some furniture but I haven’t got round to it yet! I have done a tester p, to try the colour, and the paint goes on like a dream. Lovely quality, and easy to paint with. Self levelling, so minimal brush strokes are visible, and it’s low odour too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply gorgeous neutral for your home What a beautiful neutral colour. I bought this in eggshell finish to paint an old pine larder unit and coffee table. It goes on like a dream and I cannot express how much I am now in love with this colour. Looks fab against the Hague Blue on the walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour Hardwick White is a beautiful colour with a lovely green hue. I have it in both lime wash and emulsion and both are quite different but both amazing. It's an excellent wall colour that goes well with shaded white woodwork for warmth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, finish and coverage ! During Lockdown we decided to take on an outdoor kitchen project. So glad we used Farrow & Ball Hardwick White for the woodwork. We wanted a nice organic outdoor colour to fit in with the herbs and plants. The finish was amazing after 2 coats. Really pleased with the overall effect
