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 The best soft off white ever We bought Joas White for the kitchen as I wanted a soft mushroom white to coordinate with my blinds. It was a very easy colour to live with, warm and pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour and texture It’s always a gamble when choosing a paint colour but the chart was pretty much spot on and the end result better than anticipated. Two coats of the water based eggshell was necessary, as directed, on top of another manufacturer’s undercoat. Well pleased. Brushed on and finished off by using a small foam roller to get an even finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent warm neutral. Thoroughly recommendable! Excellent warm neutral. Used with All White on woodwork. Lovely result!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shade of cream. All the external woodwork on my home is painted in Joa’s white including a recently completed timber conservatory. The walls in my bedroom are also painted this colour! I use a small number of background colours throughout my home to tie rooms together and be gentle on the eye. The furnishings are then used to depict the character of the individual rooms. I love Joa’s white!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from F&B quality, warm neutral colour Our decorator, who hadn’t use this colour before, was as impressed as ever with the finish and, once more gave me top marks for choosing such an excellent colour pallet ( Wimborne White ceiling [estate emulsion], Joa’s White below dado rail [estate emulsion], Joa’s White [eggshell] on the dado rail, Dimity above the dado rail [estate emulsion]). The room is transformed! A calm, cool in summer, warm in winter, haven of peace.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Different colours We were very upset with the end results of our hallway, it looks extremely patchy in places. One tub of paint was so thick and lumpy that we had to return it to Homebase. Really disappointed that we chose a premium paint only to get such bad results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Country Cream - Timeless and Elegant We are absolutely delighted with our choice of Joa’s White for our lounge renovation. The paint was the usual Farrow and Ball perfect application, consistency and finish that we have come to expect. It’s a delight to decorate with and use. The colour however is the best bit, it is a lovely warm, rich cream that compliments our Oak flooring and Brick fireplace perfectly. It is still light enough not to ‘darken’ the room but it has such a depth of colour to it to really add a different dimension to the room. We couldn’t be happier and highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Rich Warm Neutral Chosen for the hallway and sitting room in our period property. Having completed the hallway, the colour is nice though it does appear darker than the tester pot, when compared to the A4 painted card sample I retained. The sheen level is also much greater than anticipated from our conversation with F&B's technical team and from looking at the interior finishes on the colour card before buying the paint. We are informed that the Modern Emulsion is more forgiving than Estate Emulsion and that's why we have chosen it for these areas of the house where 'traffic' is greater. As always, the paint was lovely to use and gave good coverage over a previous white background. In future, we will return to Estate Emulsion because that's the finished look we prefer. Before purchase I would strongly recommend other customers view a wall painted in Modern Emulsion so that they can see the sheen level they will be getting.
