Purbeck Stone is the strongest of our Easy Neutrals, sitting contentedly as part of a calming scheme with Cornforth White, Wevet and Ammonite in homes both old and new.

Complementary white: Wevet

Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odour, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. They are also certified child- and baby-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021).

Exclusions: Casein Distemper, Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat, Wood Knot & Resin Blocking Primer & Undercoat, and Metal Primer & Undercoat.


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.

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 colour and very good quality paint!! We used the Farrow and Ball modern emulsion in purbeck stone for our panelling and are really pleased with the results and the colour. The paint worked really well on both the walls and the MDF (which were primed before painting) Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The loveliest colour! I was looking for the right colour to finish my girls playroom for ages as all greys we just too dark or too dull looking. I purchased Purbeck Stone without testing it first but as soon as I put it on the walls I knew it was the right colour. It is absolutely stunning. It's difficult to explain what colour paint it is but it's a warm shade of grey and it looks great even in the kids room. I love it!!
