James White

No.2010

An off white with a slight green hue

This off white was first created for the pretty garden room of a discerning Dr James with a fresh underlying green tone. The slightest hint of green creates a calm, soothing and airy feel which is particularly useful for darker interiors. When used with no contrasts, James White transforms the space into the most light and tranquil of rooms, so it is often favoured in the bedrooms of the super stressed. It will look greener when used in contrast with All White and in north facing rooms. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: All White

James White is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 87.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use to complement wood work with darker walls Fantastic white to use on the wood work of skirting boards and windows when you have a room which is a dark or lively colour. We used it in two rooms where we used Churlish Green as the wall colour and because this colour has a tiny hint of green, it worked fabulously. The ceiling was bright white so making the picture rails, windows and doors James White just made them stand out that tiny bit from the bright white but not so much that it looks like a separate colour. Spot on, highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lockdown living room I am shielding at the moment and decided I would paint my living room. It has been white for a few years now and I wanted a change. My small cottage has a north facing living room and is quite dark. I was looking for an off white colour. I sent for some samples from farrow and ball and by accident I has chosen James White. I tested it on my fireplace wall and loved it. I ordered a 5l pot. The colour is a soft green very subtle. It only needed one coat as I used a small brush and the paint was so rich and creamy to apply. I am thinking of painting my small kitchen walls with James White too. Love the quality and the beautiful colour .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calming We used this to complement Yeabridge Green in our bedroom (as recommended on F&B site). It worked beautifully. We used it on the ceiling too (quite low). Creates a very calming ambience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had been searching for this shade for months! After trying what seemed like hundreds of tester pots of pale green shades from other companies at the end of 2019, we decided on one but could not start our project until spring so didn’t buy the actual paint. Then Lockdown came .... lots of time to paint but no paint! So thank you F&B, we chose James White because of the descriptions on the website and other people’s reviews. We hadn’t even considered it when looking at the paint cars so it shows how valuable reviews are. We didn’t get a tester, just ordered what we needed to decorate our living room and it was perfect! It was the shade we had been looking for all along! Much better than the one we were going to buy elsewhere and of course the quality is always superb. James White is a lovely grey green in the morning and gets warmer as the light changes. We get sun in the morning and mid to late afternoon. Our woodwork is All White and we have painted some items of furniture and mirror frame in Shaded White and Elephant Breath. Next we will be painting a gloomy interior of a dark wood cabinet with Nancy’s Blushes.
