Shadow White

No.282

Soft white with a hint of grey

Shadow White takes its name from the soft tone created when whites are used in shaded areas, bringing out the slightest hint of grey. For devotees of lighter neutrals on both walls and woodwork, this versatile and understated colour works brilliantly in any style of home. It has none of the perceived yellow of Slipper Satin and is the perfect contrast to the slightly darker Shaded White. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Wimborne White

Shadow White is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 57.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robust and flexible colour We have used this colour (in egg shell) for all doors, skirtings and architraves in our Georgian/Elizabethan house. Although it is called white it is has none of the harshness of a pure white nor the yellowness of some off-whites. It can appear mushroom/light brown in some lights which allows it to morph in well with other colours. We used it (emulsion) on the walls in the kitchen where we wanted a warm but not intrusive background colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creamy undertone in North Eastery Facing Room Have been asked to review Shadow White match pot. Looking for a new colour for our North Easterly facing front room that we are completely renovating, ie, long overdue new carpet and curtains. Previously decorated in Joa's White, Rasberry Carpet. Wanted something more contemporay, with a warmish feel as the room only gets the sun early in the day, wanted a cosy feel, day and evening. Found the Shadow white very pale grey with a creamish undertone in this room (not noticable when colour displayed in our South Westerly facing dining room) Choose the Shaded White, darker with more dept, grey with greenish undertone, more or less noticable depending on the light in the room at different times of day. Teaming this with medium, new blue/grey carpet and curtians. Furniture is dark brown leather. Happy with our choice. No photos yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As ever great paint F & B paint is eye-wateringly expensive compared to big brands like Dulux but the colours are superb, the joy of applying it very special and the coverage excellent, so you pay the premium and enjoy the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality paint Top quality paint from Farrow and Ball. Once you’ve used quality paint, you know there’s “paint” and there’s “paint”. Easy to apply, excellent finishing properties and beautiful colour. Just stick to the manufacturers recommendations and you cant go wrong.
