Hound Lemon

No.2

A cool lemon yellow

Originally chosen by colourist John Fowler, Hound Lemon is a mysterious name for this delicate shade. With cooler undertones than many of our yellows, it feels especially fresh used in a garden facing room, where it mimics the tones of nature outside.

Hound Lemon is part of our archive collection so sample pots are not available, and orders cannot be returned.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and Cheerful This is a gentle, pale lemon and has been used in a bedroom against white furnishings. Lovely!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stunning although originally looking for something a little more 'buttery' we chose this colour to brighten our dull Edwardian lounge. it has challenges given it has dual aspect of slightly east of N and slightly north of W so is pretty dark in the winter months but gets lovely afternoon sun in the summer. hound lemon works a treat as there are no green tones taking over and has brought the room to life in even the dreariest days. worked perfectly with slipper satin on a fourth wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As always never disappointed The colours are always as I expected, this time I used hound lemon for two walls in the lounge, the yellow tones are fashionable again which I can see why, to me it's the depth of tone that I have to expect from farrow & ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An adaptable colour We always use Farrow and Ball paint as we are always satisfied with the product, ease of use and quality. The range of colours is excellent. Hound Lemon is a favourite of ours as it works well in many settings. In this house we have used it for the boot room as it is in the basement and never gets the full sun. The finished room looks stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just stunning What can I say...stunning. I love the way the colour deepens and subtly changes in different light. A classy flat emulsion. This against the White looks so classy. I'm over the moon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheerful, but not overbright. We used this colour on our bedroom walls in our previous house in a N facing room which never got any sun. We have now used it in a newly built garden room which we want to be cheerful when the sun doesn't shine and not too bright when it does...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour Having decided to have a new kitchen with light coloured doors I had to also choose a new colour for the walls. Having looked at the Farrow and Ball colour chart and finally picked the colour Hound Lemon I am so pleased that I made that choice because it looks fabulous. The quality and texture were great and so easy to apply. I applied two coats for a more even colour and I am so pleased with the result. I would definitely recommend this paint to anyone wanting a slightly more different colour to other brands.
