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 72.

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 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 Very Happy I used this colour to paint my kitchen cupboards, wanting something colourful without being too in your face. Really pleased, it has added warmth and colour to quite a dark area, the soft yellow just adds happiness to my new little kitchen. It covered the doors well was easy to apply and has left a nice flat finished which you would not know that I had used a brush to apply the paint with.
