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 31.

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 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 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful dark earth colour I chose this colour for my bathroom to match the tiles on the wall. I was very impressed with it as it covers really well for such a dark colour. It only needed 2 standard coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chocolatey I used this on a stairwell wall with Archive on the facing wall and landing walls and Pointing on the paintwork. This is a very strong colour - two coats instead of the usual three were ample. The result is striking, rich, modern and distinctively chocolatey ... you have to restrain yourself from licking the wall! Might be over-whelming and too dark if used all-over or in a small space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hallway I ordered the paint from Farrow and Ball directly which arrived very quickly. Colour looks glorious in the hall and as made a massive difference. I have 2 Dalmatian dogs that love running around and this is perfect for both look and keeping it looking clean. Decorator said he really likes working with these paints. Highly recommend both paint and colour.
