Studio Green


A deep, dark green

Our darkest green is also the colour painted on the original studio at Farrow & Ball, where many of our very first colours were created. When brushed onto exterior surfaces, the rich pigments respond extraordinarily to all types of light and magically appear much greener than on our colour card. Within the home, this deep hue appears almost black unless in very well lit rooms. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Lime White

Studio Green is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 159.

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 Highest quality, incredible finish I rarely leave online reviews but sitting here in my recently repainted bedroom in F&B Studio Green, I felt deeply compelled. This paint is absolutely worth the price. The color is perfect, and magically changes with the light - it is a mercurial dark, moody green blue black. The estate emulsion finish dries into a delicious, velvety soft matte - highly recommend. My only regret is not getting the F&B primer for dark colors; if you have the budget, I would seriously recommend it. I initially used Clare primer with this and while it went on smoothly, it took almost 3 coats. I painted the walls with this in a south facing room with 9-ft ceilings and warm red stained oak woodwork (that I unfortunately could not paint over). It made my dated textured walls look modern and inviting! Shipping was fast, even with COVID supply chain issues and shipping delays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour! Just loved this colour from the offset, wanted to spruce up my kitchen which we inherited when we bought the house in 2018. With a limited budget the easiest way to add drama was to paint the units. Studio Green is gorgeous, deep dark and dramatic. Loves the different shades in the changing light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Studio Green, dark and moody! Bought this paint when I really struggle to find a green that we wanted for our bedroom. We used it on one wall, looks really great and the quality of the paint is superb. First time to use Farrow and Ball, the paint is superior to others doesn’t Marks very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful natural green. I’ve used this on my front door and outside bench. Was worried it would be too dark and you wouldn’t see the green colour but it definitely comes through.
