Pointing

No.2003

A warm and delicate white

This fresh and uncomplicated white is named after the colour of lime pointing used in traditional brickwork. 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 105.

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 A lovely warm white We had chosen bathroom fittings in pointing and are glad that we chose to paint panelling in the same colour. It is light, cheery and warm, reminds me of the colour of cream on the top of milk. I will use it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transformed the whole house. The house looks beautiful. Have had so many compliments from friends asking me what colour it was! A joy to use and very happy with the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good combination of paints to give a modern twist to a 200 yr old property. I used F&B primer/undercoat and Pointing on the door frames and skirting. On the walls I used Joa's White and Rectory Red. As the walls were new plaster they had a primer and undercoat. Joa's white had two coats while Rectory Red needed three to get the depth of colour. I'm very pleased with the result. Joa's white is taupe in colour and goes well with the red.
