Rectory Red

No.217

A rich red

This rich clean red is named after the charming village houses built over the years for the clergy. Rectory Red is a blackened and aged version of Blazer and feels much more sophisticated, especially when contrasted with Red Based Neutrals such as Joa’s White. It is a warming colour which will intensify when used in a small space to create the most welcoming of rooms. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones 

Complementary white: Dimity

Rectory Red is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 76.

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 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.


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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous depth of colour This was used to highlight a fireplace wall in a cottage type house. The depth of the colour is amazing and gives the room warm cosy feeling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The outdoor chairs look brand new. Beautiful colour and texture Used rectory red on 2 Adirondack chairs. The colour is perfect as I wanted red, but not a glossy scarlet. The eggshell finish and the shade is exactly the more muted colour I wanted. I painted them in the house as there is no smell and they are now ready to be put out in the spring. The small can did 2 coats on 2 chairs with some left over for touch ups.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality The colour is lovely but the quality of this paint I found to be unbelievably poor, it was like painting with water. (See pic)I was covering a pale yellow but it took four coats. I’m confused because I’ve used F&B paint before and was so impressed I wanted to use it in more areas of the house. It’s almost as if the quality of the ingredients have been changed for the worse. This was modern emulsion. I used it with Joa’s White, which I found to be the same thin quality paint. Reviewd as overall fair because the end result looks lovely but it took repeated coats to get there.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible ! Terrible paint it was like spreading tar - had to give up and use another brand ! And its very pink when dried rather than red . Supper expensive and unusable ! Such a shame as never had problems with your paints before !

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Patchy..after hours of painting extra coats This paint is definitely a pink based paint not a true red, I like the colour although now doesn’t match my soft furnishings planned! The patchiness has been a big surprise having used F&B several times before and not having his issue! Even got a blister from effort required..still patchy and need another tin but last in my local shop. I wonder if old stock but see other people having issues on here of a similar nature!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish I love painting with Garrow and Ball Paint, it just glides on to the wall and often one coat is all that is required.. fab product would highly recommend. The wall in the picture is Esrate Emulsion Recory red and the Fireplace is Farrow and Ball : Matt Eggshell All white..
