New White


A fresh cream

This creamy tone is only deemed as ‘new’ because it feels much fresher than more traditional whites such as Lime White. It will warm up any room with its soft illumination, working particularly well in a country kitchen setting alongside our other Yellow Based Neutrals. New White can look milkier in colour if contrasted with White Tie or cleaner when paired with India Yellow. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: White Tie

New White is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 102.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect warm cream Warm. We have decided to do ceilings and woodwork in new white. It goes so well with matchstick on the walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Antique White We have a 500 year old farmhouse and painted the woodwork on the stairs previously in an ‘in your face white’. It never looked quite right. So decided to risk it and try New White from Messrs Farrow and Ball. opening the tin my heart sank when I saw it was very ‘cream’. However, Sir Dave ( husband and decorator) persevered and said F and B rarely get it wrong! I left him to it. He was right! The colour is absolutely perfect. It is a very soft white which is very forgiving. There is a definite creamy tone to it but without having a yellow tinge. It’s warm, gentle and couldn’t have worked better in such an old house. Sir Dave said it was a joy to paint with too. The quality of the paint is superb. We used the full gloss but it has a lovely soft sheen rather than a mirror shine. Just perfect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous paint I bought way too many sample pots haha, and had way too much time to pick (I couldn't get the decorator in due to the pandemic, obviously) so a lot of time went into this decision, but it was definitely the right one. Beautiful paint and gorgeous colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour I ordered a sample pot, and am very pleased with the colour, it is a warm white, slightly creamy. The paint is of course the usual high standard of all Farrow and Ball paints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love New White! I have always loved New White - we used it in the lounge in our last house and have just painted the hall walls with it in our new house. It is very warm and bright and changes colour according to the light
