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

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just forget straight white! With the exception of one of our bathrooms, white is nowhere to be found in our house; instead Tallow is everywhere you might otherwise use white, e.g. ceilings, woodwork, internal spaces, etc. Being old (early 1700s) our home embraces strong colours... we have dark rooms pretty much throughout (all F&B), and Tallow oozes warmth and adds brightness to the likes of Studio Green, Brinjal, Mahogany, and to mid depth colours like Oval Room Blue or Brassica. Love this hue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour but expensive This paint transformed my house! I have been told my house looks spacious and the colour is great. However, it's really expensive but it's worth it if you have a good taste. My house looks clean and fresh!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It looks so nice on walls, you get hungry! I am restoring a stone hut in Ossola Valley (Piedmont, Italy), which was very much in need of care. One of the room was painted in pink and it was horrid. Pink took all the light that comes and it was ugly, so I decided to try Tallow, beacuse I don't like total white for the hut, it is too cold. I wanted a color that could have been there for years and not the impression a brand new wall. A truly folk one. The choice was fortunate. The color is rich and creamy, not at all yellow, but it is exactly like a candle, more like light sand, it is warm and capture the light well. My son says that it makes him hungry, as he wants to have a vanilla ice-cream every time he enters in the room! The quality was superb as always and coverage amazing, as the pink below was dark. I am very satsified with Tallow and I will use it for all the hut's spaces. Thanks F&B!!!!
