Tanner's Brown

No.255

A strong dark brown

Our darkest drab is named after the craftsmen who tan the hides and skins used to create leather. Tanner's Brown will read as almost black in lower lighting and is extremely useful to create a slightly softer look when used on the interior of fireplaces. It does, however, become browner in colour within well lit homes and exteriors due to its warm red undertones. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Joa's White

Tanner's Brown is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.

Product Information 
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. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful effect Painted my lounge three weeks ago now and couldn't be more pleased. The paint was a dream to work with from white to very dark 2 coats underfoot one top coat and it's a great to finsh. Well worth the extra money it's saved time all round and looks amazing with my bright furniture and furnishing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dramatic Doesn’t create a dark cave. When paired with white woodwork and frieze creates something really stylish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing in a dark room Wasn’t sure if this would work in a north facing bedroom but went for it and love the results. Looks very different in the room than I expected but better for it. A really lovely blue/brown/black and I’m very happy with it. Easy to get paint with too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used for first time and won’t be the last Painted a piece or furniture for the first time using modern eggshell from Farrow and Ball also used the recommended dark tones undercoat, no strong smell and no drips, a pleasure to use and I’m really happy with the result so pleased we chose this shade, stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick The density of this paint was great. We have old beams in our kitchen that had been painted a mustard colour which was not attractive. Coverage was almost perfect on one coat but after two was amazing. Drip free. The colour appears black to begin with but is more mellow

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous on floors I used this paint for my bedroom floor and liked it so much I have since used it on my dining room floor. Both floors have been greatly admired by friends.
