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 4.8 out of 5 by 100.

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 Lovely colour Beautiful colour. First time using Farrow and Ball paints and will continue to use them. Well worth the extra cash. Painted my whole kitchen Tallow but the main dining room wall in Pink Ground. They go so well together & the Tallow is so fresh & warming. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I've been a fan and regular user of F&B paints for many years, I know its on the pricey side but the colours are worth it. This is a really nice creamy colour that I love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous paint and wallpaper I use farrow and ball products throughout my house the paint I ordered gave excellent coverage and was easy to use. I needed just one coat to cover the old paint so I found it to be very good value for money. The colour is exactly as the colour chart predicted and the eggshell finish added a lovely pearly hue when I put my lights on at night excellent product. I would certainly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful soft texture Used this paint on an east facing room that hardly sees any daylight and it has really lifted it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like Double Cream A lovely warm creamy colour that went on like a dream and revived our Smallbone cabinets. Hardwearing and easy to wipe clean (Modern Eggshell). Pairs wonderfully with the walls in Smoked Trout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repeat customer Have used F&B paints many times in the past but, due to COVID-19 closing our local store where I normally buy my paint, I ordered online. It took a couple of weeks to arrive which, given the circumstances, was excellent service to my mind. The product as always is of the highest quality, easy to apply and with a great finish. We liked it so much we decorated a second room in the same colour.
