Red Earth

No.64

A warm terracotta red

This light terracotta hue takes its name from the very soil beneath our feet. Red Earth is a rich blend of red and yellow pigments which create a warm earthy feel in homes both old and new. Often best used in smaller spaces, this warm colour responds extraordinarily to the changes of light throughout the day, becoming deeper and cosier as the sun drops. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones

Complementary white: Dimity

Red Earth is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 9.

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 Beautiful color This paint is a joy to work with. The service was wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Up dateing We inherited an old brown wardrobe from my husbands mother. It was very dirty so we cleaned it up and there was interesting carving on the panels at the fromt and a date of 1825. It was a priests vestment cupboard. I painted with the Red Earth eggshell it looked amazing, went on very easy. I let it dry and went over it in Charlston Grey also a lovely paint to use, letting the Red Earth peek through. Touched up some of the carving with old penny bronze. I'm painting the inside Red Earth to compleat the Wow The end result is fabulous

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful Lovely shade of Suffolk pink which I used on the chimney breast as a feature wall. Goes really well with the Farrow's Cream which I used for the rest of the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour which fits perfectly in our listed cottage We have liked this colour so much that we have used it again to decorate the spare bedroom. A bit pricy but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ordered on line, delivered on time and great finish we used the same paint 10+ years ago in our kitchen - lasted well, but needed to be refreshed, so we chose same paint again. Excellent coverage, easy to apply with pad

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent The quality of the paint is excellent as expected and the colour as hoped for. It has resulted exactly as i dreamed, the garden wall to be and has lent a positive mediterranean feel to the new look garden. The delivery was prompt and even the delivery gentleman was great. Many thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent terra cotta type color Not too pink, not too orange. Room is cheerful in the morning and glows at night. Strong but not overwhelming. A huge success. The pro who put it on said he had to use more than he expected for proper coverage. However, he had no complaints about ease of application and the end result is lovely.
