Lime White

No.1

A chalky off white

This timeless off white is named after the chalky pigments used in original distempers. One of our Traditional Neutrals, its soft tone is created by the addition of a small amount of green pigment. Lime White has a totally enduring feel, and when combined with Old White or Slipper Satin it becomes both sophisticated and understated. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Slipper Satin

Lime White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous product Great product well worth the money. Great coverage and wonderful depth of colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks ace! A very subtle chalky looking wall paint complimented well Wimborne white on the panelling. Looks lovely with my new mixed pattern Italian bathroom tiles and upcycled chest of drawers. I’m an artist by trade so pretty fussy about my paint, but think there’s nothing nicer that a freshly opened tin of Farrow & Ball!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour Used this on Conservatory ceiling and one wall. It has given the effect I wanted of being a soft but light colour, white would have been too bright and clinical. It also went really well with smokey green on the short walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exterior Eggshell is the perfect paint Fantastic paint to use - great coverage and finish, durable and attractive yet brushes are easy to clean with water - totally recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive, but worth it Yes you can colour match with cheaper paint. But Farrow and Ball paint has a better texture and tone that is worth the extra expense. And coverage is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely soft colour This colour is a lovely warm neutral. The coverage is great and gives a lovely depth of colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This paint looks great! This paint is so easy to use, dries pretty quickly and looks really great, I turned a messy wooden floor into a beautiful floor in just over a day, the finish is satin - not glossy - and very easy to wipe clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good style I wasn't disappointed in the colour and the recommendation from Farrow and Ball.
