Off-Black

No.57

A soft black

This soft black is one of the original Farrow & Ball colours - an uncomplicated name for a well loved classic. Off-Black is much more flattering to adjacent colours than stronger blacks because it feels so much milder in tone and has less of the underlying cool blue of Railings or Black Blue. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Dimpse

Off-Black is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 165.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Off black Matt estate emulsion Pared this with sulking room pink. It’s more of a very very dark navy bordering black but works well with sulking room pink. Easy application. A little goes a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Feature I bought this a month ago as I had just had a new bathroom fitted. Instead of the usual white door I decided to go with off black. I'm so glad I did. The colour is a beautiful black not too harsh and the finish is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour Bought this to paint our bannisters and newel posts after seeing it used on instagram by others for this purpose. Colour is very dark grey, almost like railings, but my husband describes it as very dark blue, but he likes it a lot! It goes on well, very smooth no drips, but I used F&B primer beforehand. It dries darker with a lovely sheen. I'll probably use a decorators varnish on the top of the bannister and newel posts though to ensure its longevity. Like it so much we're going to paint the vestibule door with it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love it! I bought this with some trepidation as painting my bedroom black felt a little scary but absolutely love it. 2 coats for depth of colour but went on like a dream and could have got away with one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour I just did our living room in black using F&B off-black and I’m in love with it. The space feels warm and inviting and the matte soft black does not make it feel smaller.
