Dead Flat

A subtle shade whose name refers to the ‘dead’ (as we like to call it) or completely matt salmon colour painted at Kedleston Hall in 1805.  

Dead Flat® is our multi-surface, ultra-matt finish with added toughness. Suitable for walls, it’s ideal for colour drenching. The flat matt look creates richer colour from every angle, while the washable, scuff-resistant finish is more than a match for mess — perfect for hallways, playrooms and other high-traffic areas.

Key features

Our most matt finish

Our most matt finish

Our most matt finish yet, Dead Flat® is ultra-matt from every angle.

With just a 2% sheen level, less light bounces off the surface of the paint, so you can fully enjoy the true depth of colour. Our signature rich colours seem even richer, especially our darker shades. So, you can enjoy the ultimate Farrow & Ball aesthetic. Plus, for the first time, you can achieve an ultra-matt look for your woodwork too.

Our deeper, richer colours are available in a range of finishes with different sheen levels. Sheen always affects how colour appears: the same shade in gloss can look very different in matt. That’s why we specifically adjust the formula for every finish to make sure the balance is exactly right and you get the colour you were expecting. Our colours and finishes are formulated together, so you simply can’t have one without the other.

Scrubbable

Scrubbable

Dead Flat® creates beautiful spaces that stay beautiful.

It’s scuff-resistant and scrubbable, meaning you can easily wipe off marks without any paint transferring to your cloth. Dead Flat® is ideal for hallways, playrooms and other busy areas, so you can enjoy deep, durable colour throughout your home.

100% water based

100% water based

We’re proud to have been the first in the industry to transition to a completely water based range back in 2010. As a result, all of our finishes, including our tough trim and floor paints, are made with a low-odour, low-VOC water base that scores A+ for indoor air quality. 
 
Plus, our water based paint doesn’t discolour over time like solvent based paints can. So your spaces stay beautiful for longer. 

Toy safe

Toy safe

This finish is independently tested and certified toy-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021). That means you can and a splash of colour to toys, cribs and other surfaces little ones come into contact with. Our paints also have hardly any odour and don’t need any solvents to clean up, so you can breathe easy during application and beyond.

Dark Tones

When it comes to using dark colours, the deeper the better. So, for an irresistibly inviting finished look, pair darker shades with our Dark Tones Primer & Undercoat. Based on the colour of Down Pipe, combining this primer with your topcoat creates an unrivalled richness and makes quite the statement.

Made with the same natural ingredients and pigments as our topcoats, our Primer & Undercoat is the crucial foundation for creating a rich, even and longer lasting finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant but casual blue This is such an elegant but casual blue. We used the F&B dark primer and 2 coats of de Nimes and got such a lovely finish. We’ve used F&B throughout our home. We’ve tried colour matching twice. On both occasions we’ve regretted not going for the real thing. Expensive but definitely worth the cost
