String

No.8

An earthy yellow based neutral

This Yellow Based Neutral is reminiscent of the untreated twine used by gardeners and parcel senders worldwide. String’s underlying green adds a pale and earthy feel which works particularly well in rooms connected to the outside, such as conservatories and boot rooms. For a relaxed and effortless scheme, contrast with the very slightly lighter Matchstick. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: White Tie

String is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 43.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paint, amazing service! I love these paints, and have used them extensively in my house renovation. They never fail to delight, with their depth of colour, and quality. I ordered during lockdown, as I was unable to obtain any locally. I was told it may take longer than usual, but it arrived in 2 days!! Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish I recently bought masonry paint for an outside room we are creating that needs to blend with an old 14C Grange. It's gorgeous. Easy to apply. Good colour. Seems to be standing up to the recent weather conditions of alternating blistering heat / torrential rain!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good neutral, warm and easy The sample pots are a brilliant way of getting a true understanding of the colour whilst being able to try in different areas of the room to get a good perspective.
