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 34.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from warm, harmonious and interesting I love with this colour with highly polished antique furniture. It's also good with black, managing to be both modern and classical at the same time.If you use it in the hall it will set the tone for the whole house, unless you live in a mansion. We didn't quite want that so we used it for two adjascent upstairs bedrooms under the roof. It gives them a great and special character.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful colour I have a small bed room which is used as a book room. It is north east facing so , if we have sun, it only comes in through the window in the morning. This colour gives the room a warm attractive colour all day whatever the weather, and with the morning sun or even the electric light it produces a jewel effect. Because the room is so small I [my decorator in reality] painted the whole room, woodwork, walls and ceiling in India yellow. The two freestanding bookcases on the visible wall, were painted in inchrya blue and they complement the colour without being too dark The bedroom next to it is painted dix blue and these two colours compliment each other and tied the room into the whole scheme.I felt like I was being very brave, but not everyone goes into this room, so I took the risk and I like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best yellow! Gorgeous shade and depth of colour. We have used in the kitchen and it’s bright and airy but in the evening is definitely cosy and warm. Beautiful paint.
