Estate Emulsion

Deep, warm and welcoming, this shade was once popular in country houses, where it was often used to highlight the woodwork of back stairs. In a contemporary setting, it still makes a wonderful colour for walls, doors and trim alike, adding richness and drama to any space.

Estate Emulsion is a classic choice for low-traffic interior walls and ceilings. Very matt with a distinctive, chalky finish, it minimises imperfections and creates a beautiful depth of colour.

Key features

Very matt

Very matt 

Estate Emulsion is a very matt finish with a chalky 2% sheen.

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.

Classic, chalky look

Classic, chalky look 

A true classic, Estate Emulsion is a distinctive, chalky finish that minimises imperfections and creates beautiful depth of colour. Due to this unique texture, it’s best suited to less-busy areas without a lot of traffic.

For walls and ceilings in low-traffic areas

For walls and ceilings in low-traffic areas 

Estate Emulsion is our classic finish for interior walls and ceilings in low-traffic areas. Gently wipeable but not washable.

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). Browse our full selection of finishes to find the perfect paint for your project.

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.

Red & Warm Tones

Our Red & Warm Tones Primer & Undercoat is the perfect first step towards truly cosy colour schemes. Based on the shade Porphyry Pink, it makes topcoats look even richer, so you can enjoy the fullest expression of your chosen hue.

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 Love it!! Love the colour and the paint is amazing to use. First time using dead flat but already ordered more for our next project. Love that you can use the same paint on all surfaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cocooning and sumptuous Probably my favourite ever Farrow and Ball colour from my favourite ever collection. How can they have archived these magnificent shades?! Deep Reddish Brown is exactly the colour of Indian earth after the monsoon rains. It can look like an edible chocolate in some lights, a warm rich purple in others. Cocooning and sumptuous, there is no better colour as a backdrop for green plants or anything else for that matter. I have yet to find something that it doesn't look fabulous with.
