Yellow Ground

No.218

A timeless mid yellow

One of our most useable yellows, this sunny shade was first used as a background colour within our ever evolving wallpaper collection. Yellow Ground sits between the fresher pigments of Citron and the richer mustard tone of Sudbury Yellow. It creates a happy and stimulating space in any light without being overpowering in colour. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones 

Complementary white: White Tie

Yellow Ground is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 19.

Product Information 
ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

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.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our 132 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

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 Great cover Bought this estate emulsion for a newly plastered room. Two coats over a thin layer of white emulsionhad given excellent cover and deep colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality paint It’s the first time I have used Farrow and Ball paint after my daughter recommended it. I am now hooked! Colour is fantastic and went on a dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My beautiful bright new front room! This is the first time we have used your paint (always found it too expensive) but I have enough left to paint my small office too so I'm delighted! I thought perhaps this shade would be too bright for a large Edwardian room but, with white ceilings and woodwork, it looks great and brightens up a north-facing room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family was against it , but . . . . . . I think it has turned out well. Good coverage and a lovely colour. I have a tin left over from the quantity I thought I would need. The door is in rectory red, with a warm red undercoat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and cheerful Very happy with this warm yellow as a contrasting colour for my bedroom skirting boards and doorframe. Looks lovely next to rest of neutral walls (used new white on main walls - a creamy colour). Eggshell went on beautifully.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the colour I was expecting, much paler. Have had to order another darker colour. So disappointed when painting our front door as the colour online looked like a mustard type of yellow. Yellow Ground looks much more like a rich cream and nothing like the mustardy colour we thought it would be. Have now ordered Babouche and hope it is more the colour we were first expecting. Disappointed it has cost us twice the price!!
