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 21.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour We used this with Stiffkey blue (blue on one wall) it works beautifully. It’s the first time I’ve used F&B paint and I love it. I’ve tried most brands over the years and this is the nicest paint I’ve worked with. With all the mixed reviews I was concerned about the end results.. We used the recommending undercoat for both colours and I’m really impressed with the quality of the paint and the overall finish. We have young children so went with the modern emulsion the sheen is very slight and has a different appearance to other low sheen paints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shadow white - lovely colour After much testing with various sample pots of the darker whites I decided on Shadow White, with Shaded White on the woodwork and Wimborne White on the skirting boards. It has turned out to be a very good decision. The paint colour is absolutely beautiful, very gentle, pale enough for a very light kitchen extension but dark enough not to feel stark in the evening. It has a greenish feel to parts of it depending on how the light falls but I don’t think we will notice this once furniture etc is in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sophisticated shade of white If you're looking for a sophisticated shade of white that would look good in both modern and period homes then Shadow White could be the answer. We painted a fireplace surround (it looks great against the black insert) and some tired old pine cottage doors in the bedrooms. I was worried that the tint of grey might make it a bit gloomy but it reflects the light well and it's made a huge difference to a small dark landing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect The colour was perfect for the light and coverage I had in my kitchen - I’ve painted my previously hideous wooden cupboards with ‘purbeck stone’ and this is a super complimentary colour. Can not fault the paint for coverage and colour depth.
