Lichen

No.19

A mid aged green

This calm and muted green is named after the ever changing, subtle colour of creeping algae which ages stone so beautifully. It has a quiet and subtle feel to it, due to its underlying blue tone, and is perfect for use in the garden where it feels totally at one with nature. It works wonderfully as a darker accent to Vert de Terre too. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Lime White

Lichen is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 113.

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 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 A beautiful cheerful green We specified Lichen for our recently installed wooden door, with the intention of repainting our garage doors in the same colour. We’ve just finished the project today just before they start on replacing our windows tomorrow! Although we have a lot of Farrow and Ball throughout the house this is the first time I’ve applied it myself. The undercoat and primer went on very easily as did the Exterior Eggshell although completely covering the colour of the undercoat was a challenge even with two coats. The paint was touch dry in about 30 minutes. On a pragmatic note, the drying time of both these paints enable two coats to be applied in a day which is a major step forward from the old oil paints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the colour I’m getting a new kitchen in which is ivory, I’m doing the walls in very de terre so I’m doing a couple of cupboards each side of the cooker in lichen. The colours great. Adds warmth and depth to the overall look. Farrow and balls colours are expensive but to buy anything else is too much a compromise for me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour but not for us This is a lovely colour but looked a little on the brown side next to our other colours. We use F & B a lot and have always been very happy with the results. Highly recommend the paints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast efficient service. I ordered my paint on line and it arrived pretty quickly. As a professional decorator I like the quality of the paint and variety of colours. It goes on the wood very evenly and after 2 coats leaves a lovely smooth finish. It remains to be seen how long the paint lasts before it starts peeling on the summerhouse I painted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic customer service Colour is as expected since shade charts are very accurate. When it arrived the package had taken a knock in transit so the lid was off. Rang F&B and they had a replacement for me within two working days. They are excellent!
