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 159.

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.


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 The paints/colors are wonderful! I love the colors! They seem to have selected the BEST colors out of millions of possibilities on color cards in a box store. It's also important to me that I buy paints that are environmentally friendly. Thanks, Farrow and Ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely deep modern grey Beautiful deep colour that I used in estate eggshell to upcycle an oak console table. Not too cool but still modern look. Did 2 coats of primer prior to painting (not to mention lots of sanding!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A calming stone colour with hints of lilac We have just painted our hallway in Purbeck stone, which is another serene and calming colour from F&B. There is definitely a pale purple hue to this colour although this might just be the lighting/accessories in our house which draws this out.
