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 61.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint, applies a treat! This quality paint id twice the cost of well known high street brands but the application is easy. One undercoat and two top coats as instructed provided a fantastic finish. In the event, the paint went further than we had anticipated leaving us with an unopened tin - we must have got our calculations wrong. The colour is warm by day, a little lighter in appearance when lit with side table lamps. The finish is lovely and well worth the additional cost. The colour range is superior to compared to other well known brands. Would definitely use again and order direct from Farrow and Ball whoseservice was second to none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply the best ! I have now painted every wall and ceiling in the house with Farrow and Ball paint , I cannot recommend it highly enough . Coverage is fantastic the finish incredible silky smooth. The paint has a elasticity to it which seems to help with troublesome cracks especially on ceilings. I wouldn't use any other paint now . Top product.
