Vardo

No.288

A rich teal

This rich teal takes its name from highly decorated traditional horse drawn Romany wagons. Often used in the intricate patterning of these beautifully painted homes, Vardo is so full of life and joy it seemed natural to name it after something renowned for its flamboyant colour. This bright colour works particularly well with reds or dark greys. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones 

Complementary white: Shaded White

Vardo is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 32.

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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

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 This paint is delicious Can not express how much I love this colour! I don’t think I’m ever going to leave my bedroom once we’re moved in! Makes me so happy and as usual the quality of finish is perfect. Thank you Farrow and Ball!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic compared to other brands This is a great paint. I have used it in Estate Eggshell form along with other colours for finishing electric guitars. It has a nice consistency and applies like a dream with really good even coverage especially with a roller. when dry it can be wet sanded, clear coated buffed and polished. Looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vardo I used this paint to paint a wooden chest, I was so pleased with the results. I painted the edge of the chest antique gold complimented the Vardo very well. Its a lovely rich colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour and excellent coverage Bought 2.5 lt of modern emulsion for the bathroom. I was pleasantly surprised as to how well it covered a white wall requiring only two coats. Great colour and finish

Rated 4 out of 5 by from lovely finish with roller I used gloss paint [and would have liked to have bought a smaller tin] and all the brush marks showed. A roller gave a beautiful finish for flat areas but where i had to use a brush [as on window frames] it didn't look so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour The first coat is chalky, but the 2nd coat glides on - the results are stunning, the colour is vibrant and joyful, it changes shades in various light. I had my whole living room painted in vardo - in the evening light the colour becomes more subtle and calm - it looks fantastic with gold coloured accessories & frames - everyone who has seen it comments on how beautiful a colour it is. So pleased with final results.
