Pointing

A warm and delicate white

One of our Red Based Neutrals, Pointing has a warm undertone to it which creates the prettiest of spaces when used on walls and always softens the feel of a room alongside strong, traditional colours. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Wimborne White

Pointing is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 192.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant coverage and forgivingly flat finish We bought this for the first time 3 years ago to paint beamed room of our 16c cottage. Worked wonderfully, lovely to apply. Have just repainted our bedroom with it. Love it. Couldn’t be happier with the finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint This is about the fifth time we have bought this paint as we have it on all the ceilings and a few of the walls. It is fabulous to use, looks great in an old house and the colour is warm and restful

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this paint I always buy F&B paints. Experience has shown how disappointing alternatives are in depth and subtlety of colour. Used this for painting kitchen cabinets and really pleased with result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pointing as Accent Colour Pointing is a shade darker than Wimborne white. This slight difference enhances the light cream of Wimborne White on a wide framed wall mirror. When applied as an accent background the effect is one of dimension. The pairing of these two colours adds a soft but warm look to an otherwise hard edge surface. Pointing is just the right shade of blush.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I tried a sample of this colour but found it was too white for the outside wall. I decided to paint the wall James White which is a chalky off white colour. I love farrow & ball it goes on the wall effortlessly.
