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.


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 Wonderful colour! Used this to paint an old cabinet. It looks almost white when it goes on, but dries up wonderfully. We love the colour against the Jitney walls of our bedroom

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product - Great Customer Service Over the years I’ve used Farrow and Ball paint many many times. A few years ago, I was lured away by some alternative paint companies but haven’t always been 100% happy with the final results. I decided to return to Farrow and Ball as I really love the colours available and the final results. I realise it might mean painting an extra coat, as the paint seems a little “thinner” than some I’ve used, but I’ve come to realise that the layers of paint add to the depth of colour on the walls and ceilings. The final results are beautiful and like many things the effort and time taken gives it rewards. At the moment, I’m really taken with “Skylight” I’ve used it on the ceiling and top half of the walls in my sewing/craft room and again in my sitting room which isn’t quite finished yet. I’m back to loving my rooms again! Also despite our present situation with COVID-19 the paint arrived much quicker than expected - thank you.
