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 108.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

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 Perfection for a calming bedroom First time painter, excited to use F&B stateside - purchased this from a local dealer. Primer and paint were easy and smooth to get on, and we are so pleased with the result! Pale Powder can look light grey to blue grey to green grey, depending on the light, making it a delight to observe during the day. Called the UK customer service, and they were a great help with questions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most beautiful colour This is the second room I have painted with F&B. The colour of Pale Powder is fantastic and depending on the light goes from a duck egg to an aquamarine colour. I used Pointing as suggested on the F&B website for the woodwork and, as before, your suggestion was spot on. The warmth of Pointing lifts the whole room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour and the paint is so lovely to use I would never use any other paint - anything else is a false economy. The paint calculator on the website was spot on. I used one coat of undercoat and 2 of top coat as advised. Pale powder is such a restful, tranquil shade - sometimes it looks grey, sometimes, green, sometimes duck egg blue - depending on the light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool refreshing finish I utilised the Farrow and Ball primer and 2 coats of the Pale Powder to get the finish I required (one coat was insufficient). The resultant finish is outstanding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, good depth of colour. I use Farrow and Ball paints as they are quality paints, worth the money. In this case I chose to go with Mizzle which looks great in both my sitting room and main bedroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint, colours are fantastic! Just redecorated a bedroom using Teresa Green & Pale Powder. The paint is off the highest quality, the online guide to how much needed was perfect, I was left with just a tiny amount left over. After ordering the paint arrived very quickly, is so lovely to use...just perfect! The finished effect is even better than expected, the colours change slightly with the natural light and worked together really well. Am now planning the next project and will definitely be using f&b again! Worth every penny!
