White Tie


A pale creamy white

Our prettiest white is named after the old, pre-brightened, starched cotton used for white tie jackets. One of our Yellow Based Neutrals, White Tie brings a gentle warmth to any room and is deepened with a touch of black pigment. Combine with Matchstick, String and New White for a delicate scheme with reassuringly creamy undertones. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Wimborne White

White Tie is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 127.

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.


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.


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 It’s my ‘go to’ off white Love White Tie; this is the third time we’ve used it in our conservatory. It’s just a great off cream that’s warm and applies so beautifully and of course, no odour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This colour would go anywhere! White Tie is the most versatile shade, off-white and creamy in strong light, warm and soft in artificial lighting. The texture was smooth and easy to apply, went on like a dream and looked wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TV Room Our TV Room is both north and east facing and gets very little sun. It needed a bright colour to lift the room. White Tie was perfect. It is a lovely rich cream white with a hint of yellow. A great result.
