Sample Pots

Whether it comes to you in our smallest samples or our biggest tins, our paint is rigorously tested to the highest standards of colour accuracy and quality, giving you the best possible idea of your finished result.

How to use Farrow & Ball sample pots

1. PICK

Add samples of your favourite colours straight to your basket from our Paint Colours page, place an order for as many sample pots as you like, then sit back and wait for your free delivery!

2. PAINT

Rather than applying straight to the wall, we recommend applying two coats of each of your paint samples to separate sheets of paper or card (the bigger the better) and leaving to dry.

3. POSITION

Stick your sheets up in the room you’re planning to paint. Move them to other areas of the room to see how the colour changes throughout the day and under different types of light.

Paint Swatches

Like our sample pots, our generously sized paint swatches are made with Farrow & Ball Estate Emulsion for 100% colour accuracy. With no mess and no fuss, they’re easy to move around and layer up with other swatches to create your custom palette.

 

How to use Farrow & Ball paint swatches

We recommend moving your swatches around the room you’re planning to paint, so you can see how the colours appear at different times of day and in different types of light.

Once you’ve decided on your colours, check the back of each swatch for its recommended shade of Primer & Undercoat and complementary white – everything you need to complete your look.
