Oxford Stone

No.264

A pared back taupe

This classic dark taupe was inspired by the cottages found in the pretty Cotswold villages of Oxfordshire. It is the darkest of our Red Based Neutrals and sits contentedly with both Joa’s White and Dimity for a pared down neutral scheme. Brimming with warmth and an unmatchable depth, the subtle richness of Oxford Stone creates an earthy and uplifting finish from top to bottom, sweeping across woodwork and walls. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Dimity

Oxford Stone is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 44.

Product Information 
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 132 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.

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint as ever We love Farrow and Ball paint! Our house is all Farrow and Ball. I love the Oxford Stone but I am surprised at how dark it has turned out. Having said that we have painted a north facing room so maybe that has something to do with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant, cosy stairs The colour is warm and elegant, the finish is tough with enough subtle sheen to pick up light in a narrow dark hallway. Exactly what I hoped for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from quick delivery but expensive per pot great service, fast delivery but 4.99 per pot is expensive. Would be helpful to have a small brushes included as trying 5/6 pots in each room required a lot of washing brush and drying !! should be able to get a refund for the sample pots when buying the 2.5ltr pots. (with a receipt obviously)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Beautiful! After quite a few tester pots of both Little Greene paint and Farrow and Ball I finally decided on Oxford Stone to go in my kitchen, which has terracotta floor tiles and wooden worktops. I could not be happier with my decision! I chose the modern emulsion which is wipeable, it was so easy to apply and has a really lovely finish. This paint looks matt but in the light has a slight sheen to it. The colour is so Beautiful and has a lovely contrast against my white kitchen cupboards. I would describe the colour as a sandy beige (not yellow)! But does have a nice warm under tone about it in some lights different times of the day. I bought the 2.5L tin and have over half the tin left over as the paint goes really far. I never write reviews but felt I needed to as the reviews on this site helped me when trying to find the right colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour Opted for this colour as opposed to London Stone as it is a bit lighter and am delighted with the result. It gives a warmer 'glow' to the room but retains a neutral feel. Used Dimity for the woodwork and it works very well.
