Sudbury Yellow

No.51

A traditional mid yellow

This soft mid yellow takes its name from the staircase at Sudbury Hall, where renowned colourist John Fowler used this shade to such great effect. Sudbury Yellow is particularly responsive to changes in light, reading as cleaner and brighter in well lit rooms or softening in dimly lit spaces alongside a stronger contrast like New White. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: New White

Sudbury Yellow is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 55.

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.

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 Perfect I wanted to decorate our home office and Sudbury yellow and Amonite grey look perfect. The finish of the paint is lovely and it covers really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint The colour is exactly as we hoped it would be. Dark and golden in places; luminous in others, depending on the light. It was my first experience of painting with F&B paint and it was great. The paint went on very easily and was almost entirely odourless - I didn’t get a headache after using it as I have with other paint brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality in colour Since we bought this house ten years ago I have gradually been redecorating with F&B estate emulsion. I love the quality and depth of colour. My first choice was Rectory Red in the Kitchen, then Sudbury Yellow for hall and Sitting Room, Lichen for one bedroom and Damask Rose for another. The little sample pots are excellent for a trial but also to touch up any small marks ata later date.
