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 4.9 out of 5 by 28.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unusual colour that matched exactly what we wanted We tried about 8 paint samples to match a pale yellow colour. This colour was the one we we looking for. It has a hint of green in it, and worth having the wall repainted for.
