Picture Gallery Red

No.42

A rich brown based red

This timeless red is based on the rich colour of the magnificent gallery at Attingham Park. A generous helping of brown pigment deepens Picture Gallery Red, bringing a unique warmth and character. As its name suggests, this ruddy hue creates a striking backdrop for works of art, be they hand drawn in crayon or expertly painted in oil.

Product Information 
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 132 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely shade I am using this lovely shade to make a strong statement in a small area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent result, great colour. I am very pleased with the result. It is in an old Devon farmhouse with beams and big fireplace. It gives a warm and cosy feeling, great for the coming winter! As the name suggests it sets off my old oil paintings in gold frames.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful relaxing and strong colour I wondered if I’d gone too dark however Picture Gallery Red is a perfect colour in our large living room. It covered really well with just two coats. I painted the skirting with the same colour and it looks amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent covering power A perfect colour for our decor. The product was easy to apply and particularly easy to touch up without showing. I would certainly buy Farrow and Ball again. It has no competition, you do get what you pay for.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Quality control I have used your estate emulsion in my study before with good results. After many years I decided to completely redecorate this room with a slightly darker (No 62) tint. I ordered 2 2.5 litre tins from you and they arrived promptly. The trouble is they aren't the same paint. The first one was very difficult to mix properly and had to be repainted twice as the coverage was poor and the second one was markedly thixotropic but easier to apply and needed minimal stirring. I would like to know why there is such variability in your product considering the high price you charge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent match with existing but surface description was confusing as it is not the same as other manufacturers eg Matt. Excellent match with existing but surface description was confusing as it is not the same as other manufacturers eg Matt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous red Such a beautiful colour with amazing depth and tone. I wanted to paint a feature wall in our slopey ceiling (yes, I think that's a technical term) bedroom and fell in love with Picture Gallery Red when flicking through the handy colour book. I was so delighted with the result that I painted another wall in Picture Gallery Red. And even more delighted that it blended well with my Orwell and Goode in the woods lampshades. We have teamed Picture Gallery Red with Slipper Satin on the other walls and ceiling. All White woodwork. The bed is painted in Off White. Floor boards have come up a treat in Slipper Satin floor paint. Our bedroom is now calming yet warm. We love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used on our front door.... With absolutely great results. Used on steel front door and achieved the colour and results I was looking for. I have found Farrow and Ball paints easy to use once you understand application process ( which is pretty straightforward ). These paints dry to a beautiful finish every time.
