Matchstick

No.2013

The shade of unbleached wood

This versatile and understated tone is named after the unbleached wood used in the stalk of a match. With the tiny addition of black, this neutral timber colour creates delightfully understated rooms which are warm without feeling creamy. In well lit rooms it has a fresher quality, especially when contrasted with White Tie or other Yellow Based Neutrals, while feeling more relaxed and traditional in a darker north facing room. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: White Tie

Matchstick is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 50.

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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful coverage! Our second purchase from F&B and very happy with the quality of the coverage. The modern matt alongside the eggshell paintwork gives a lovely finish. Our next order is already in, will never go back to our old paints and the false economy. After all, you do get what you pay for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous paint The sample is a great size for testing. I haven’t purchased a larger amount simply because I can’t decide if I want this to be trim or wall. Can’t go wrong with Farrow & Ball!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I knew of Farrow & Ball from working for someone who used it but was reluctant to spend so much more than other brands. After using a cheaper brand and regretting it we purchased F&B Matchstick Emulsion. Goodness me we were not disappointed. This paint has incredible pigmentation and coverage. We will never use anything else again and can not wait to try other colours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome paint First purchase for kitchen & utility to keep us busy in lockdown and results are amazing. Paint great to apply and have had to wipe down already (two coats) and as good as before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best! I used this paint to redecorate my open-plan lounge and dining area. I teamed it up with Eating Room Red on the fire breast wall and it looks great. It's easily applied, covers well and despite being very matt, has a smooth finish touch unlike other leading makes of paint.
