Purbeck Stone

No.275

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 73.

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 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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent coverage. I had green smoke colour on walls of my kitchen but fancied a change to neutral. I chose Purbeck stone as it’s a warm grey shade, it would brighten the room and be a good backdrop for my reclaimed pine table and chalk white chairs. I wasn’t disappointed, I put a light wash of cream undercoat over the dark green before the Purbeck stone, it went on perfectly and finished the job in no time. I have had a few wows! When family and friends have visited, on the whole very happy with paint again from Farrow & Ball, thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour Lovely rich grey colour perfect for a new office room I'm painting! As always with F&B the paint was wonderful to work with and the coverage is fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour I bought 5 L of this paint having tried several paint pots. When I first used it I was worried that it was too dark but now I absolutely love it. It covered a deep cinnamon red with two coats over an intitial white quick coat. F&B paints are always lovely to use. My only criticism is that it is very difficult to choose a shade of a colour. Even in a stockist, the cards bear little relationship to the actual colour. I wish they were laid out / described in a more appropriate way (Dulux do this much better except the portions of colour are so small!). Pint pots are fine but become expensive when a few are purchased over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great with paired with brassica I wanted a colour for an alcove cupboard that would work with walls painted in brassica. The clever people at F&B suggested purbeck stone. I thought it might be too beige, but it actually looks the perfect cool grey beside brassica.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product does exactly what is promised I was tackling all the cupboards in my kitchen and decided to spend more and try a quality product. I was not disappointed the finish was excellent and the application simple without laborious preparation.
