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 5.0 out of 5 by 4.

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.

Customer Reviews 
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely authentic Schoolhouse colour. I live in a Schoolhouse and worked in the 1876 local primary school for many years. Your Schoolhouse paint colour is reminiscent of some of the walls in the old school building and great for my rooms.
