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 107.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paint I've never used F&B paint before but would definitely use it again. The paint was so easy to apply, no drips and smooth. Worth paying extra money for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very soft and smooth color. Perfect shade of pink I was looking for a soft, delicate pink and this is it. So soft, it only whispers that it is pink. My painter said it was a very smooth, luxurious paint to use. I recommend it highly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Color I remodeled my Guest Bathroom several years ago. The paint has held up well and the bathroom looks as fresh as the 1st day. The paint rolled on easily, I can't recommend this paint enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint lovely colour Absolutely love the colour Pink Ground. I've never used Farrow and Ball paint before as it's a little expensive, but as we weren't using wallpaper I thought I'd use the xtra budget and try this paint. I wasn't disappointed, the paint goes on lovely, two coats and it's jobs done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still the best pink I bought Pink Ground to do a wall that had had some work done in a room already painted in this colour. It’s still the most heavenly Georgian pink and I adore it. A couple of walls had some little marks on them and being lazy I decided to see if I could touch up with a roller before I painted the whole thing. It worked! Not sure you can do that with all F&B colours without it being noticeable but it was flawless in this case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely paint I tried this colour with a sample pot, the overall finished effect is even better than I thought it would be. Very pretty and not overpoweringly 'pink'

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful peachy pink We ordered Pink Ground recently via Farrow and Ball. Excellent and speedy delivery. We have used the paint on a feature wall in our north facing bedroom, it has transformed it and brought warmth to the room. It is a lovely, chalky estate emulsion. We love it!
