Incarnadine

No.248

A classic crimson

Our richest crimson originally takes its name from Latin, but is now a much used term for crimsons and reds. Similar to the deep glossy red used by David Hicks at Barons Court in the 1970s, Incarnadine is unashamedly classic and glamorous. It can be used to sumptuous effect in halls when offset with Tanner’s Brown on woodwork, or feel more edgy and graphic when paired with a bright white. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red and Warm Tones

Complementary white: Wimborne White

Incarnadine is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look fabulous in our bedroom! We painted the whole room in Incardadine - felt daring at the time - but delighted with the result. Looks wonderful - we used modern emulsion to give a bit of a sheen which has worked well - the colour is so rich and dense - we feel we have created a luxury bedroom!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A joy to use I bought a beautiful selection of tester pots to paint my downstairs loo. Please see photo below (not quite complete). I have loved every minute of it and will be sad when it's done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour I bought the sample pot of incarnadine to cover some marks on our wall - painted a gloomy hallway incarnadine below the dado rail and it is wonderful. Decided to make a feature of the darkness rather than paint it white and have it look dingy. Also recently painted one living room wall in Harrissa, and it is fantastic. The colour works really well in any light. Ignore any silly reviews about F & B paint on the internet about over-hyped and over-expensive and needing umpteen coats before it looks right. You're paying for the colour saturation and quality, and two coats of Harrissa properly applied is all I needed for the living room. Used F and B lots of times and never had any issues.
