Shaded White


A light grey beige

Neither too warm nor too cool, this neutral takes its name from the soft tone created when many of our whites are used in deep shade. Shaded White has a gentle greyness, but with none of the cooler tones of Cornforth White, making it incredibly versatile within homes both old and new. It is often used alongside lighter shades such as Pointing or Slipper Satin for a restful space, or paired with Drop Cloth for a wonderfully relaxed feel. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Shadow White

Shaded White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 129.

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.


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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Shade Purchased this to paint the skirting boards and architraving to complement our Hague Blue Walls (which we love!). Deliberated quite a lot to get the right shade but this one is just right. Also this eggshell is water based, therefore, dries much quicker than oil based and much easier to clean brushes. Very happy all round. My husband does all the decorating and really enjoys using the F&B paints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Contemporary Warm Grey/Green Choose for our North Easterly facing sitting room that only really catches the early morning sun. Wanted a contemporary colour that would feel warm and cosy day through to evening. Perfect colour warm grey with green undertone. More or less intense depending on the light in the room and time of day. Seems more green in late afternoon light. Settles to more tranquil hues in the evening, hints of mushroom, soft grey/putty colour with greenish undertone. Used pointing on ceiling and wood woodwork, takes on a lovely warm white effect, in the light in this room, harmonising well with the shaded white. Competed the room with new mid blue carpet and curtains. Aim achieved room feels cosy day through to evening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to paint brand I've been using Farrow & Ball paints for a number of years. I love the colours and textures. Ordering from the website is easy and delivery is efficient. Would definitely continue buying from Farrow & Ball.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely subtle colour I have just had my kitchen painted in this colour and am very happy with the result. It is a variation on white with green/grey undertones. Warmer and more interesting than white but not too deep so that it blends in with many other colours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased I bought paint online to save going out and I was thrilled with the experience. Even though it was explained that there may be a delay in receiving my order due to current circumstances, the order arrived promptly and in excellent order. Farrow and Ball paint never disappoints so will definitely be buying again and online. Thank you for a great service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paint choice I’ve now purchased two big tins. I’m sure it’ll look as good as the tester pot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neither too cream or too grey Bought shaded white to go on Orangery walls as I wasn't sure what my colour scheme would be it lends itself to grey and beige
