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

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour, great quality paint I tried a few testers and settled on this gorgeous Shadow White. I didn’t want too yellow or too green, too brown or too pink..but rather just a soft beige grey with slight green undertones which changes during the day, from a very pale stoney beige to a darker grey with green tone as the sun sets. The application was sublime, as it’s a great consistency and just glides on. Have used it here in my bedroom, on just the one back wall initially, but will now do all the walls. I shall be using this in other rooms of my cottage too, without a ‘shadow’ of a doubt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely dissatisfied Despite years of using Farrow and Ball and being extremely happy with the product, our recent experience with modern emulsion has left a very bitter taste. we were told that modern emulsion would be most suited to a hallway as it is a high traffic area and would allow us to wipe clean the paint. We experienced problems almost immediately, the application of the paint was anything but easy, it left patches of high shine and the finished look was inconsistent. Worse still when I have attempted to wipe the wall clean the area has been left with cloth marks. In fact, we will most certainly have to repaint the hallway before the year is out, so unhappy and dissapointed are we with the finished product. This time however, I will most definitely be using another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely calm neutral I bought several sample pots from Little Greene Pint co and also Edward Bulmer none of which I liked, too green, too yellow. I needed a calm classic colour with no yellow as was to cover 2 walls in the bathroom, the rest being tiled in a pale grey and the bath and washbasin also being a pale grey- just needed something to lift it without the yellow that I felt was very off key with the tiles. This colour works beautifully, I would say in the north facing bathroom I can see no hint of grey or green which others have mentioned, even in electric light, just a very calm classics light neutral that would probably lend itself to lots of rooms where you want to provide a calm backdrop and introduce colours in other ways, bedding, cushions , flooring etc. We used the modern emulsion in the bathroom and the eggshell in the same colour for the bathroom cupboard and both have given a good finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful calm colour We used this colour in our living room and we are very pleased with it. It’s gives a calm feel to the room and is also very classic. I can’t see the hints of grey in it though, would describe it more as a stone in our room

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent again! I have used this colour on two wooden floors so far and it works really well. The colour adapts to suit different wall colours. The blue walls give it a slight grey tinge yet the Old White walls give it a more mellow hue.
