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 293.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely warm creamy white I love farrow and ball paint and found a colour palette in their brochure with railings and lime white and whimborne white. My kitchen is so cosy and now has a modern twist

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful quality, easy to apply paint I wanted to refresh some kitchen cupboards with an off white shade and Wimborne white turned out to be just perfect. The modern estate eggshell was a real dream to apply. It dried quickly and I'm really pleased with the finish. I've used cheaper paint brands in the past but this was false economy and I will always use F&B for future projects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage I used this for my fireplace, ceiling and walls above a picture rail with oval room blue on the walls. It’s amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reassuringly expensive Concerned by a couple of reviews that your paints, particularly in regards to coverage didn't warrant the price. I have all new plastered walls painted in bog standard 'trade paints' 18 months ago matt white everywhere, now I wanted the finish and colour I wanted. Two coats of Wimbourne Modern Emulsion did the trick with the cost of The Decorator I'm not going to have it repainted anytime soon, the previous paint looked tired almost straight away. For sure painting, in this case, white on white helped the finish. This is the first time I've used Farrow & Ball and I will always from now on, the colour in all rooms is beautiful Thank you.
