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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour! I am absolutely delighted with the colour and quality of this paint. It’s created a great contrast in my sitting room. And despite there being a hint of grey, in some lights I feel that’s mixed with an ever so slight green undertone which actually creates a sense of warmth. The colour is so versatile that I have used this paint in one of my bedrooms too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent service, pigment and coverage! We ordered straight from the F&B website and delivery was fast. The paint itself is wonderful to use, gorgeous pigment which glides onto the walls giving great coverage. We used Strong White in the kitchen with Off Black on a feature wall. It’s so striking we love it. We were so impressed we are working through the house with F&B!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic finsh Really pleased with the great satin finish on what appears to be a really hard wearing eggshell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cool, sharp white I have teamed this white with skimming stone and inchyra blue so far and love it. It has grey hue but is sharp, cool and contemporary. Looks smart!
