School House White

No.291

A soft off white

This is the lightest colour in the group including Shadow White, Shaded White and Drop Cloth - each created to look like white when used in deep shade. Pared back, timeless and familiar without the cool undertones of the more contemporary neutral groups, this soft off white is reminiscent of the colour used in old school houses.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Wimborne White

School House White is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good colour and finish Tested a darker shade first. Really happy with the School House White. We had white hallway and stair walls previously so wanted to keep the white theme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enigmatically beautiful I don't write reviews-there are too many opinions voiced in this world- but this paint shade is quite divine; the best paint colour I have used in a long lifetime.In a gloomy hallway it warms and lightens whilst still being enigmatic.It is a 'white' with real magic, a changeling shade. I adore it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally old school ... Was looking for a not in your face white for the spindles of our newly renovated staircase and this is perfect. Lovely white which is not too modern. Also got samples of Shadow White (too grey) and Pointing (too creamy) so for us School House White was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely white I tried several tester pots and School House White was just the kind of warm white I was looking for

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant colour on wooden floorboards We bought an old country cottage last year and painted all walls shaded white. We decided to use School House white on our floorboards as it goes very nicely with shaded white. We have been so pleased with the colour choice and have received many compliments about it! It is such a lovely, soft, chalky off white. Would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely New Colour This is a beautiful new colour but unfortunately not what I am looking for. It is darker than anticipated - almost close to the Skimming Stone I currently have. I am desperately looking for a neutral off-white that is not greenish, blueish, pinkish or too cream'ish; got so many test pots and still not found the right one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This new colour arrived just in time I'd bought so many sample pots and no white was right. Then School House White was one of nine new colours - and it's perfect for ground floor rooms in our house.
