Purbeck Stone


An understated stone grey

Purbeck Stone is a clean and understated mid grey that resembles the colour of stone found on the Isle of Purbeck, close to our home here in Dorset. 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. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Wevet

Purbeck Stone is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 147.

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.


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. For further information about our products, including guidance on safe use and application, click here to view our advice pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great finish. First room in our new home now decorated. Definitely recommend using the undercoat and paint. I used a lot less paint that we calculated for, that’s fine as I’m continuing the palette of chosen colours throughout the ground floor. We used modern emulsion and estate eggshell for woodwork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just lovely The sample pot(s) arrived in perfect condition and quickly. And considering the lockdown much better to order online than queue outside in Glaswegian weather. It is a beautiful colour, slightly darker than what I had visualised (in small patches) but does not darken a room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I am so happy I took the plunge, given how expensive F&B paint is. We did two coats of primer and two coats of paint. The paint went on really smoothly and we're really pleased with the results. It's transformed the room and I'll be using F&B from now on!
