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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fortitude I don't know when or how it happened that I got to a stage of my life where I was ruminating over a shade of white but alas, Strong White is one of my absolute favourites by F&B. It truly is a very sophisticated shade of light grey. It is understandably less warm than its darker relatives (Ammonite, Cornforth) and almost appearing as the palest ice blue in certain synthetic lights, especially upon looking at an isolated spot when testing the colour at first. Once it is uniformly applied however and exposed to natural light it does appear as a luminous and delicate grey, with a much less blue tinge. All White adjacent to it will also make it appear more grey in tone. My next more modern project will consist of Strong White walls and the dramatic Downpipe on all wood skirting, door surrounds and the entire area of my shelving units. This will be in a North facing room, contrary to the F&B advice to avoid greys in such light. I can't resist using it it's that good. Strong White is my go to neutral, is far less blue than both Blackened and Dimpse in the F&B light grey family, and is a wonderfully inviting and calming colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best soft grey ever! We have purchased umpteen sample pots in the vain hope of finding a light grey paint that will hold its own when teamed with white woodwork. We didn’t want any hint of blue, green or pink but just a soft grey. Farrow and Ball’s Strong White is simply perfect! Thank you for creating a paint which is classically modern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this subtle and gentle grey I bought Strong White to paint my trendy grey type sitting room and couldn’t wait to see what it looked like with the green of my Christmas tree against the wall colour. I was not disappointed. If you want a gentle yet warm grey, then this is it. I just love F&B paint. The picture of the door and dresser is in Eggshell Annomite grey. Just love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous paint to use I’m new to using the modern emulsion paint. As I wasn’t sure what the sheen would look like. From now on I will always buy my F&B paint in modern emulsion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I bought a sample pot of strong white to see if this was the correct shade to use on skirting doors and ceilings but I found it a bit to dark and grey for this purpose however it has turned out that it is the perfect colour to use in my now kitchen to compliment my dove grey units
