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 89.

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 Great quality I bought Hardwick Grey estate eggshell to finish a pine wardrobe we had been transforming,adding an old pediment and applique carvings. The paint brought everything together beautifully and the quiet colour gave just the right effect. One great thing about your paint - a little goes a long way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint I aways use Farrow and Ball interior emulsion and eggshell paint. This is the first time I've tried exterior and was really pleased with the outcome. Brilliant colour and finish on our front door. This paint is very easy to apply and I would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Converted my Painter & Decorator! This is the first time I’ve used external eggshelll and I am so so pleased with the results! The colour warms the stone on our old farmhouse and is just perfect! The P&D has never used F&B products before and tried to recommend another product which he’d used before... I knew the kind of finish I was looking for and stayed with F&B. In the end he was impressed with the ease of application from both under coat and the top coat.. and he was really impressed with the end result too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful I bought this to determine what colour paint was in our bathroom, we knew it was Farrow & Ball, but just wanted to make sure. Just the job.
