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 21.

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 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. For further information about our products, including guidance on safe use and application, click here to view our advice pages.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb quality & colour! We selected Yellow Ground to cheer up our living-room and we couldn't be happier with the result. The paint is really easy to apply, odourless and gives the space a luxurious feeling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely cheerful colour for a shady hall Very easy to use, only needed one coat over the sanded magnolia walls I was painting over, no fumes, or hassle cleaning brushes or the odd splatter. Lovely cheerful colour, without being overbearing, for a rather gloomy, narrow hall.

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.
