Pale Hound

No.71

Delicately aged yellow

This pale and aged yellow is a lighter version of an archived Farrow & Ball colour, Hound Lemon. Named by the great colourist John Fowler, the story behind its namesake remains a mystery! Pale Hound sits particularly well in sunny spaces where it reads as a light and delicate yellow, and in garden rooms where its underlying green pigment connects seamlessly with the exterior. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Wimborne White

Pale Hound is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 35.

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 A really useful tester pot Plenty of paint to get a real feel of how the colour will look. The Pale Hound is not right for my current project (wrong light) but will be ideal for the next one, so no money wasted!
