London Clay

No.244

Our warmest brown

A warm and charming brown, London Clay is loaded with magenta pigment for a rich, earthy hue that creates the most charismatic and elegant of rooms. So named because it is a deeper accent to London Stone, consider using this dark brown in a hall or transitional area to make the rooms coming off it feel much lighter and brighter. London Clay is also the perfect accent for both Elephant's Breath and Charleston Gray. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones 

Complementary white: Skimming Stone

London Clay is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 30.

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 Quality finish We chose 'dead flat' finish - the colour, coverage and density was amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality, if expensive Always the paint of choice for use where it will make a significant contribution to the final effect. I struggle (a bit) with the price, but at least you get what you pay for with F&B. I've been buying, and using, paint for 50 years, and n the end if you want quality, this is the product to go for.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Still waiting for a refund The paint is great absolutely brilliant. However, I over ordered on the paint so sent one full unopened tin back, very easy, but am still waiting for my refund hence my 1 star review. I always get annoyed when companies are very quick to take your money but not so quick to return it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not brown! Thought this was going to be brown I’d been searching for and the colour card certainly indicates this but having tried the tester pot it is instead a murky grey colour not the rich brown I was expecting. Going to live with it for a few days and see if it grows on me. Tester bought from our local independent paint store.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A need for a change Searching for colours for a new light grey kitchen I discovered this colour used in similar circumstances and it compliments the units perfectly. Service was great from F&B, so happy all-round.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not like the picture at all The paint is of a really good quality and as the sample went on you could see the depth of colour and quality of paint against the cheaper alternatives taken as colour samples. The problem we have is that the colour is described as a warm brown and the pictures makes this colour really appeal. The reality was that this was actually a murky grey. Really disappointed as this was to be our feature wall colour to bring our room together. Still searching for the right colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous . Like melted chocolate. Used this colour on the recommendation of a friend. I would never have been brave enough to use it otherwise as my whole house is in f and b paler colours is shaded white, light blue and strong white. It is a beautiful colour between dark and milk chocolate and looks amazing in my en suite which only has a small window. The light fitting has glass droplets and they cast a lovely pattern in the dark walls. Took 3 thin coats with a roller. I'm loving the f and b dark side!
