Wimborne White


Just off white

This just off white is named after the market town of Wimborne in Dorset and home to Farrow & Ball. Only a shade away from a pure white, the addition of the smallest amount of warm yellow pigment creates a very versatile shade which is just a little softer than All White. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: All White

Wimborne White is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 267.

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 Perfect colour for my garden Wimbourne white external eggshell is just the right colour for my garden shed as it compliments the reclaimed brick work perfectly. Great coverage from this product, the shed needed 4 coats due to previous painting but still have about a third of the tin left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Estate Eggshell Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell, as applied over Light and White Undercoat and Primer on baseboards, trim and a tall book shelf, produces a soft smooth finish. The finished result paired with Wimborne White Estate Emulsion is not unlike the light of polished alabaster, or an October mid morning sunlight. Two top coats to secure the very best finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WIMBOURNE WHITE Paint seems thin compared to other brands, but doesn’t seem to drip and run. The colour and finish is stunning, really pleased I took the decision to purchase. My Hall looks amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely external paint - worked a treat Farrow and Ball offer all their colour range in External Eggshell versions. Couldn't any other brand that offered anywhere near the colours I was looking for. If you can get hold of the F&B swatch leaflets in your local B&Q it will help you loads in choosing the right colour. Is it expensive? Well.... I'd say you get what you pay for - unique colours and quality paint.
