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 86.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderfully dramatic.... Fabulous paint....as always from F&B; never use anything else on our walls. Fantastic coverage that hides a multitude of sins over pretty rough, unevenly textured walls in our office. Have even used it on the ceiling. A deep, rich, blood red colour that is really dramatic but has great warmth. My favourite room in the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL colour I looked at so many reds after being inspired by images of this one. In the end I decided on the original and I am so glad I did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning depth of colour Used this on an old ornate wardrobe. Three coats. Sticky stuff to apply, the result was fantastic. Depth and quality of colour is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful depth of colour In dull light this has a brownish essence, in bright light it is a stunningly rich red. The modern silk aspect helps to bounce the light around creating a warm and inviting dining room. I twinned it with a gold over effect and it works well for me.

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.
