Pale Powder

No.204

A gentle aqua

Our most popular shade of aqua is a lighter version of an archived Farrow & Ball colour, Powder Blue. Pale Powder has an unparalleled softness and in north facing rooms can read almost as a delicate grey, but it is rarely cold due to the addition of green pigment. It is a great favourite for use in pretty attic bedrooms where it can be brushed onto both ceiling and walls to create an airy feeling of light and space. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Pointing

Pale Powder is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 80.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft green / grey Perfect for our basement kitchen - looks better in shaded areas - as more grey - wouldnt use in a fully south facing room as the green tint it becomes too prominent - but in a north facing cool shaded room , it looks perfect. And don't worry its still a fresh and light colour - not too dark. Love it. Also pay a little extra for the rub resistant paint. Much easier to keep clean and only a slight difference in price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farrow & Ball are simply the best! I have used F&B paints many times over the years and they always measure up. Delighted with both samples snd fav confirmed to paint kitchen cupboards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft and surprisingly lovely in north light Used in a low-lit corridor lit by a north-facing skylight. I was worried it would seem grey. But not in the slightest - just incredibly soft and reflective pale bluey-aqua. I’d love to try it on an attic room next - walls ceiling and all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this colour Really lovely light blue, which changes with the light. Gentle and quite warm, especially when paired with soft white woodwork. FandBs modern emulsion is a joy to work with, and much better resilience than estate emulsion, plus easier to wipe clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pale powder modern eggshell. Bought for a kitchen cabinet makeover project to help my house sell. Buyers will probably install a new kitchen so little point upgrading the kitchen since taste differs. Now the cabinets are finished (two coats on top of primer) buyers might delay fitting a new kitchen since the cabinets look fantastic. It's a room with three windows on different aspects where the colour changes as the day progresses and the blue green modern emulsion on the walls also changes colour. Very happy and now considering using the left over paint for an 'orange' pine bed and cabinets.
