A cheerful green

Breakfast Room Green is the most cheerful of all our greens, remaining lively in both bright sunlight or softer candlelight. Named after the usually east facing rooms designed for eating the first meal of the day, it is particularly beautiful in the dawn light. When used alone on both walls and woodwork it becomes incredibly striking.

Key features

The finest ingredients

The finest ingredients

We’re dedicated to perfecting the art of paint. At our home in Dorset, we combine the finest ingredients, 75 years of experience and technical precision to help you create beautiful spaces that stay beautiful. Even in our colour rich paints, less than 8% of the tin is the colour. The other 92% is what creates the quality, depth and extraordinary response to light that transforms your home. 
Paint is like coffee. The colour is the froth on the top, but it’s the quality of the rest of the cup that makes it taste good. 
– Richard Ball, Farrow & Ball Co-founder 

We use twelve exclusive pigments, all specifically selected for their colour intensity. We take colour seriously, so naturally, we only accept the very best. By using these same pigments to make every colour in our palette, all our shades combine effortlessly, making it easy for you to put together a cohesive colour scheme. 

Deeper, richer colours

Deeper, richer colours

Packed with pigment for an extraordinary response to every kind of light.

We add generous helpings of rich pigment to create our signature look – deep colours with complex undertones. The same space that feels bright and airy in morning sun, can feel cosy and intimate by evening. Our teams design each shade under every kind of light, so it will be perfectly balanced in every setting.

Extraordinary response to light

Extraordinary response to light

We spend months carefully crafting and testing each of our paint colours to make sure they share our signature extraordinary response to light. This beautiful reaction to changing light, like bringing out different undertones or shifting intensity, is what makes our paint so special.

Interior and exterior finishes

Interior and exterior finishes

From walls, floors and furniture to radiators, skirtings and sheds, our range of paint finishes can help you transform almost any surface in your home (and outside it, too).

We even have multi-surface finishes like Dead Flat® and Full Gloss, so you can tackle walls, woodwork and metal at the same time. 

Our comprehensive range is comprised of paint finishes that not only look beautiful, but offer different practical benefits. Designed for a variety of different surfaces, each finish is compatible with our high-performance Primers & Undercoats to ensure exceptional coverage, adhesion and depth of colour. 

Colour Story

Complementary White

Slipper Satin

Without cool blue undertones, Slipper Satin often reads as a pale grey chalk which makes for a perfect neutral on walls with darker Old White woodwork. Find out more about Slipper Satin

Every colour in the Farrow & Ball palette is paired with a specific shade of white, these are selected to celebrate a shared undertone and create harmonious spaces alongside your chosen colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ten out of ten This has got to be the best paint I have ever bought the colours are beautiful and the paint is very easy to apply. I ordered extra as I was assuming I d have to apply several coats but I didn’t need to one coat was enough and unlike other paints I didn’t get sprayed it must be thicker . I shall be using the remaining paint to do my living room aswell. Thankyou it will be my first to go to in the future .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour and excellent quality paint I bought this last week and decorated our bedroom in this colour and it’s lovely. We also had our wardrobes spray painted in the same colour and we love them! I’ve used many brands of paint over the years, this is the first time I’ve used this brand and I wouldn’t go back! Quality of paint is outstanding!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a beautiful green! Just finished the guest room. Ceiling in Lime white, woodwork in Tanner’s brown but the star of the room is Breakfast room green. I used the deadflat on all walls, the radiators and even wall outlets! It’s such a beautiful colour: chearful, warming, happy but never too bright or harsh. So so pleased! And deadflat is absolutely my favourite paint!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Green I’ve recently been a convert to farrow and ball paint, at first it seems expensive but it’s definitely worth it. The breakfast room green is great, I painted my dining room with modern emulsion and it’s come up great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, restful green We chose this for the seating area of our kitchen and it was the perfect choice. A sophisticated, subtle shade that has beautiful variations in the changing light throughout the day, on our east-facing wall by a north-facing window. It's a great backdrop to set off flowers, vases etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breakfast room green - Deep flat Deep flat is the best paint finish I have ever used. The wood work and the walls not forgetting the radiators look amazing and the colour and density of the paint is excellent. The coverage is very good. Looking forward to buying my next pot of Deep Flat in another exciting colour

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best green I’ve had the tester colour on the wall for about six months and finally for around to painting my sitting room. Love the colour!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely colour but not as good as modern emulsion! I'm a regular user of farrow and ball paint, and unfortunately don't feel the dead flat is the same high quality as the modern emulsion. The colour is amazing, but despite using the correct undercoat and stirring the paint adequately the coverage is patchy making it incredibly difficult to touch up any areas without needing to redo the whole wall. The coverage of the modern emulsion is better, but I prefer the matt finish of the dead flat paint. For the price point I'd stick to the modern emulsion.
