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 90.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hardwick White Estate Eggshell Bought this to re-paint a pair of bedside cabinets. I did not use an undercoat (even thought it is recommended) and they look like new. Lovely paint to use, covers well. Used a brush for some bits and a short pile microfibre roller for the flat parts. Gave these 2 coats. Did not use much, and have plenty left to do more items. Lovely mid tone colour that blends in well with old wood furniture. I have found it a false economy to buy cheaper paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour After trying many different F and B testers, I opted for hardwick white as it perfectly complemented slipper satin..I used slipper satin on 3 walls and hardwick white on the fireplace wall..it is the loveliest colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Absolutely brilliant and worth all the preparation work. I bought a small tin to paint my old exterior back door. I spent time stripping/ sanding the old paint off and I primed with exterior F&B primer. I was slightly hesitant about this colour but it looks brilliant! It works well with the brick wall we have. The finish is flawless and the door belt and new! I would highly recommend F&B to everyone, expensive but worth the prep work, 110%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much admired! I have painted all interior woodwork in Hardwick White in our holiday cottage in Arundel, offsetting the colour with white walls. The Estate Eggshell is durable, and one in three guests ask which paint I have used as they love it.
