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 Excellent Paint and Service I’m a long time user of Farrow and Ball paint and appreciate its high quality with smooth and even coverage producing an excellent finish. I ordered online and service was prompt and excellent including packing. I used Strong White estate emulsion ( light grey) which is a brilliant ,Oder now colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finest finish We have been blown away by the ease and finish of this paint. The colour on the walls is strong white, although we still have a lot to finish in room we love it already.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous So happy with this paint, the colour is gorgeous & looks so fresh. It gives great coverage, looks amazing and has totally transformed my utility room. Friends & family cannot believe the difference such a high quality paint makes - think I have converted them from another leading brand to Farrow & Ball. I won’t ever buy another brand of paint again, well worth the money. Delivery was prompt and came sooner than expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish The colour and the paint finish are gorgeous. We used this to decorate our bedroom and it makes it feel calm and tranquil. We had a disappointing experience with Amonite last year in another room with black flecks appearing as I rollered (paint not mixed properly in factory) so I was very happy this lighter grey gave us a perfect finish. Would definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely finish Paint was darker than name suggests but I knew that after buying some tester pots and I loved it. Easy to use and high quality finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fully Converted I had such a good experience with my earlier purchases of French Grey Modern Emulsion and Burnt Earth that I decided to follow through and buy this to finish off the woodwork too. Totally worth the money for the range of colours and ease of application.

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.
