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 4.6 out of 5 by 314.

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.

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 glows. Trying to pin down the right white for my bathroom with an art Deco mural in shades of green took time but Winbournne white is perfect. Love these quality paints and subtle colours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great finish Really lovely paint to apply. Hardly any drips or splatter occurred during application. The coverage was great and final finish very professional. Very pleased with product and worth the cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect shade This is my daughters apartment, Wimborne White being the perfect choice. Also used Farrow and Ball equipment, the roller gave the perfect finish, but the head fell off the 2” brush

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wimborne white I purchased a sample pot of Wimborne white hoping to match the colour to our new shutters (on order) and the chimney breast wall i have painted in my favourite farrow and ball colour - Downpipe - it matches perfectly. Looking forward to painting the rest of the room. Loving my new home projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly as I’d hoped Took a long time choosing the right white for our large bay window frames. With the first coat I thought maybe I should have gone for a cheaper brand, but once the second coat had dried I was so pleased I chose f&b Wimborne White. It is has a lovely depth and sets the room off beautifully
