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 23.

Product Information 
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.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our 132 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour to compliment woods I used this colour as a feature wall the other walls are in cornforth white. The pigments in both paints seem to change in different lights and both colours together look great with white woodwork and natural wood tones and gilt frames - perfect for my bedroom really pleased, colourful but still muted enough to allow a choice of soft furnishing options :) delighted

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this colour We have used both the emulsion and eggshell versions of this colour paint and have not been disappointed in either case. It has an aged look that is very appealing and in keeping with older properties.
