Old White

No.4

A historic grey green

This soft grey green simply earns its name by being the most historic of all our whites. One of our Traditional Neutrals, Old White can read as a subdued green, particularly in north facing rooms, but feels more of a classic grey in well lit spaces. It’s the most sophisticated of colours and feels just as at home in the drawing room of a historic house as it does in the kitchen of a modern family home. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Slipper Satin

Old White is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 99.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless colour - great in period or new property My painter complained about the paint (said it needed more coats than other makes). However, I love the colour and am happy with the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxurious Colour I bought this as a contrast to Studio Green. I bought a complete second hand Oak kitchen, the carcasses and cupboards are being painted 'studio green', the splash backs in this luxurious 'old white'.
