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 4.7 out of 5 by 75.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Renovation project I bought this to give my Ercol unit a face lift and I love the effect. Perfect colour looks really classy. The paint is a pleasure to use and gives a beautiful finish. I have gone on to paint another piece of furniture and am equally pleased with the effect . I shall definitely stick to F&B paint in future.Thank you .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted I have been using F&B throughout my house for the past 7 years now. The quality and coverage has always been good but has improved over time and is now excellent. I used Oxford Stone Modern Emulsion on my hall landing and stairs repainting over existing Oxford Stone Estate Emulsion. The finish is beautifully smooth and rich and although the same colour a big improvement on the previous coat. I teamed it with Dimity on the ceiling and woodwork and it looks stunning. Next day delivery is excellent so I could just crack on with the job as local suppliers didn't have it in stock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb paint, appears to be very tough We bought this on recommendation to re-paint our solid wood kitchen doors and framework rather than renew as everything was still very solid, we just didn’t like the colour anymore. As with anything, preparing surfaces is the key to a good job but using this paint gives you the best opportunity for a good outcome and finish. I have always been reluctant to pay the price for Farrow and Ball paint but having now used it I can understand what you are paying for, it is head and shoulders above any paint I have used over the past 30 years and I for one will only buy this going forward. The coverage and depth of colour is excellent and rewards all the hard work of preparation. It seems an incredibly tough finish and has totally transformed our dreary kitchen. I bought the recommended primer also and this is similarly superb in preparing the surface for the final colour. True to the instructions, one coat of primer and two coats of eggshell was all that was needed. As an aside, the sample pots we ordered matched the colour of the actual paint we ordered which is something of a surprise; that’s never happened before. We have always used sample pots as a rough estimate with other makes. I can fully recommend this paint, but you have to put the surface preparation in, if you do it will reward your efforts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sample pots Sample pots are a useful way of trying out colours in different lights and different parts of the room. Oxford Stone is a beige/grey colour that looks fresh and contrasts well with the new Jitney . I intend to use both in my kitchen.
