Tallow

No.203

A light cream

This illuminating neutral takes its name from the natural material originally used to make candles. Tallow’s pale cream finish reflects the light brilliantly so it is perfect if you want to lift a darker space or paint one colour throughout a property. The slightest hint of pink and yellow pigment creates a warm but fresh feel which is often very popular in nurseries. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Pointing

Tallow is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 85.

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 Love the color It's a cream color with a hint of yellow, which really gives a lift to this east facing room. Before repainting the room was a browny red on the bottom half, then a strip of wallpaper about a foot wide, and above that a dark pink color. Truly awful and made for a dark, uninviting room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing producy I was going to change my kitchen doors until I so an advert for your paints.Although at the time I thought a little expensive but how wrong was . Now I have a lovely looking kitchen at very little cost thanks to the superb finish and colour provided by your modern eggshell paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly illuminating! I love this colour! It has really brightened my hall which was quite dark at one end but also works well in the south facing sunny section. Bright but not at all a cold colour.
