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 4.6 out of 5 by 143.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing teal! I shopped around for the perfect teal and my decision finally fell on Vardo. It was easy to apply, the quality of the paint is top notch and packed with pigments and two layers was plenty. The end result is amazing, this is not just one colour but several, it shifts depending on the light and can be a rich, creamy petrolium in the morning just to transform into a enchanted-forest-green at night. I used Vardo for the bedroom and actually sleep better now, this colour is both flamboyant and yet strangely calming.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My happy colour I was so nervous about using this colour - it’s bright, and I was advised it might be better in “small accents”. Luckily I ignored the advice because just looking at the colour made me happy - I painted all the walls in my bedroom and study. It’s the most exquisite colour - deep turquoise, warm, cosy, changes in the light. I’m so in love with it. It’s making me be braver in other parts of my house now too - love how it makes me feel! The quality of FB is, as always, perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour but not available in 1 litre quantity Having been really pleased with the colour and finish of paint, then realised unfortunately that small quantity tins were not available, and this was to do a very small toilet room, so would have been a waste.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vardo - A Lovely Vibrant colour! I was undecided between Vardo and Inchyra Blue but as soon as Vardo went on my feature wall I knew it was right! A beautiful rich & vibrant Teal. I also painted a wooden sideboard in Vardo eggshell which does look a darker shade than the wall but as the advert says the colour changes with the light.
