Yellowcake

No.279

A vibrant yellow

Just like the classic American home bake after which it’s named, this vivid yellow has a homely feel that can’t fail to make you smile. Zingy hues like Yellowcake were incredibly popular in the 1960s, and still feel very much at home in the 21st century, especially as part of a bright mid-century modern scheme.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones 

Complementary white: All White

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 Beautiful bright yellow for front door So pleased with the results as had read previous reviews about the green tinge. Have used high gloss on front door and changed the whole look of the house. Love it xx

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour! Loved the paint. Amazing colour. Needed three coats on a previously white panel door which had been sanded back. Applied three thin coats with small roller but very pleased with the finish. Loved the water based paint in comparison to the usual solvent based eggshell I've used on the woodwork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my favourite colour EVER! I love Yellowcake! One coat of emulsion was all that I needed and it looks stunning! It is crazy bright, and I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright happy yellow I'm not a big yellow fan normally but this is a lovely bright happy yellow - sunshine in a pot. It goes on smooth, 2 coats and it's good. I used the estate eggshell which is yellow in all lights but I have a tester pot of estate emulsion and that can appear bright neon green, which actually makes me want to try it in my kitchen when I get around to remodeling. I'll let you know when that happens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning accent colour I used this to transform a Lloyd Loom chair and one kitchen stool. One single splash of this amazing colour has transformed the room. Chair in one room , stool in the kitchen. The colour makes me smile. Adore it . Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Mid Century Modern House I recently bought a 1965 split level. We are in the midst of restoring this house, and undoing some dreadful 1980's renovations. Our kitchen is North facing, and was in much need of a lift. In addition to replacing the cupboards with Ikea Abstrackt in gloss white, we painted the walls Yellowcake, and I am totally freaking out how utterly perfect it is with the gloss white cupboards. Gives a huge dose of character and modern charm to the entire house which is otherwise mostly painted Cornforth White / Ammonite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunshine on a rainy day... We have used this colour on one accent wall in the living room of our 1960s Span house and are very pleased with the result. We used the Estate Emulsion as we wanted a more chalky finish. The paint is of high quality and our decorator found it very easy to use. We bought the paint from the Farrow and Ball shop in Richmond - staff there were very friendly and well informed. We are now thinking about painting another wall...
