Hay

No.37

A dusty yellow

A modest yellow named after the dried crop, Hay is both warm and dusty. Less intense and sunny than the cleaner Yellow Ground, it has a distinctly green undertone which gives it an established feel, creating peaceful spaces especially when contrasted with muted Lime White woodwork. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones 

Complementary white: James White

Hay is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 28.

Product Information 
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.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our 132 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a north facing kitchen After testing various greens which looked grey in the natural north light eventually plumped for ‘Hay’. The paint was great quality and went on smoothly with really good coverage. Was slightly alarmed on the first wall as seemed quite dark however ploughed on as we had looked at over 40 colours and this was the one we kept coming back to. I’m happy to say I’m glad I did. The whole room now basks in a warm glow - it has a lovely warm feel to it... very happy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely depth This was my first time using a farrow and ball product, but would certainly not hesitate to use again! The finish is beautiful, with a lovely depth and appearance of age which is exactly what I was after.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely colour but it makes my hall seem very dark I think I have chosen the wrong yellow. Hay has made my normally bright and light hallway seem very dark. It looks fab in electric light , but I am going to have to reprint at least one wall in a lighter brighter colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant vibrant colour Bought this shade (Hay) for a long quite dark hallway, what a difference it has made, I know Farrow and Ball can appear to be quite expensive compared to other paint companies but believe me for wear and tear in a busy hall way it is outstanding. Would recommend this paint company to everyone wanting quality and value for money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives a lovely finish We are thrilled with the results having just painted all the kitchen units and drawers. We have a dresser and painted the back with 'clunch' . The whole effect is lovely. Thanks Farrow & Ball we will definitely use you again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from possibly the worst paint i have ever used in 19 years of being a decorator would not cover even with 3 coats, i have been a decorator for 19 years and never had a single complaint in all that time, i had to give it a extra coat in my own time, there is no wonder other decorators warned me many times about Farrow and Bollocks!!! never again.
