Pink Ground


A dusty blush pink

This dusty pink started out as a delicate wallpaper background which was often requested as a paint colour. Pink Ground, with its large dose of yellow pigment, now creates the softest blush of colour for a warm and soothing finish that doesn’t feel sugary. Rather than contrasting with a bright white, try pairing with the warmer shade of Great White on the woodwork for a unique look in your home. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Tallow

Pink Ground is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 118.

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.


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 Beautiful warm pink! I bought pink ground for my bedroom and I'm so pleased. It is a warm, golden pink with great coverage. I paired it with tallow, a golden cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect I needed to inject warmth into a bedroom for my daughter. The room has a dormer window and the ceiling curves into the wall, this was always white and cold so I used Pink Ground over the ceiling and the window wall and added Theresa’s Green on the other three walls. The result is a lovely warm cosy room which my daughter loves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect pink! I bought a sample pot a few weeks ago and fell in love! We also bought samples of calamine and setting plaster but pink ground was a clear winner for us. Not too dark or bright. Just a soft and delicate pink, we painted out alcoves and ceiling! As always the paint is such high quality, no paint smell. Amazing coverage, just love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely blush pink I had been planning on painting my study but was having difficulty find the right colour of blush pink, other samples of other brands were more a lilac colour or brighter pink. After ordering 2 samples from farrow and ball- love this and have bought the full size now. Glad I was able to test it first and have a small pot for touch ups if required later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy result I bought this to decorate a small bedroom. The paint is lovely to use and made decorating a pleasure. The colour is perfect . Subtle and responsive to changes in the light. On the advice of a very helpful shop in Sheffield I teamed it with dead salmon shade and was thrilled with the result. It made me want to paint the whole house with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Features I bought this paint about a month ago and am thrilled with the results. Buying Modern Emulsion in Pink Ground was the right choice for our south facing cottage bathroom walls, with Dimity on the ceiling and gorgeous Mizzle on the cabinets, bath panel and accessories. It's still a work in progress but I will upload some photos when the bathroom is complete. Bath time is a delight for the senses during Lockdown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to apply, great coverage Bought recently to paint a flight of stairs, really great coverage and seems very hard wearing. Colour looks great next to Blackened. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour Just had installed a pale grey kitchen, the pink paint is just like the new plaster which contrast perfectly. It is light, bright and not too pinky pink. Love it!
