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 4.8 out of 5 by 144.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Paint Just put this paint on the walls in my living room, and it looks stunning. So easy to apply and you can feel the quality compared to others. I am so happy with the look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour great application Very pleased with this sample apart from the fact that the lid had opened during transit and paint was everywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shaded white - beautiful My husband who insisted on not caring about paint colours as ‘ all neutrals are the same’ conceded without any provocation that this is a very relaxing colour. As the previous reviewers have agreed, this is a stunning colour . My absolute favourite along with the shadow white. Now to try school house white ... however , the estate emulsion indeed is a pain to touch up and it does mark incredibly easily . I’ll be using the modern next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paint Love, love, love this colour, I bought it for my lounge, it’s such a relaxing colour and looks subtlety different in hue, from morning to night....grey, to green and taupe. One of my favourite shades. Used in my previous property too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I have just finished painting the sitting room of my 17c cottage in shaded white and I am absolutely delighted with the colour. I was looking for something that would look green but without actually using a green paint- this is the perfect shade, but depending on the light it can also look a greenish / grey, and even a stony colour, I’ve always loved the way Farrow and Ball paints change throughout the day. The quality was second to none, it covered brilliantly with the first coat, and then the colour was really enhanced by the second coat. This is a beautiful neutral colour, and if you’re looking for a subtle, understated green, this could be the one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage The paint is lovely, and so good to paint with, and I love the Shaded White. I am sad that I didn't buy the flat emulsion as every imperfection and bump seems much more obvious now. I'll go over it with flat emulsion next time
