Radicchio

No.96

A modern crimson

This bright and modern red takes its name from the distinctive crimson leaves of Italian chicory. Although tempered with magenta, Radicchio contains less blue pigment than Eating Room Red so is brighter and more contemporary in feel. It confidently fills a room with energy without having the brashness of a true, clean red. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones 

Complementary white: Joa's White

Radicchio is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 15.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love F&B paint Fabulous colour and quality and so easy to use. I used the appropriate undercoat first and then the top coat glides on with great results. A lovely finish and greatly admired by all. Wouldn't use anything else now I've discovered Farrow and Ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Brought a sample pot, very high quality and goes on well. We went from doing a feature wall to the whole room!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious rich colour Exactly what I hoped for in terms of colour. Used 4 sample pots to paint my bathroom as the next size can was 2.5 litres. Might need another couple though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Egg shell colours don't seem quite as true compared to emulsion First time of using F&B paints. The emulsions are lovely but I have definitely had problems with the estate eggshells in terms of the final colour. The first colour on my fireplace - Brinjal - was awful and nothing like I expected from the colour charts or the sample pot I had tried on lining paper to give me an idea. I couldn't live with it so bought Radicchio - but again, this colour is not as rich/deep as the charts, or the painted blocks they have in the shops, indicated. So out of pocket by this time having purchased 2 tins and having to pay my decorator to re-paint a second time, I find myself still unhappy and looking at a 3rd tin of paint in another shade of red. All becoming a bit expensive .....! I used pointing on the ceiling and pointing egg shell on the skirting and windows. To the eye - there is a definite shade difference in the Pointing eggshell to the emulsion which can be seen where my window frame extends into the ceiling freeze. My decorator commentated on it too saying he had double checked the tins to make sure they were the same colour. Anyway, back to the colour charts - hopefully 3rd time lucky!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has no equal. I have a 17th C cottage which has cob walls and as a result they are full of water. This paint is amazingly durable,covers beautifully and is a dream to use. Coverage and compatibility with coats put on 10 years ago is perfect. Not the cheapest but a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous rich colour I was worried this might have been a bit too 'in your face' dominant but, true to F&B form, it is a 'subtle' multi-faceted colour that changes in different lights and makes a real statement without being oppressive.
