A rich burgundy

The deep blackened pigmentation of our Eating Room Red gives a rich burgundy finish with a wonderfully aged feel. This, our most elegant red, takes its name from the colouring of the red damasks so popular in dining rooms in the mid-19th century and reads almost like a saturated purple if you compare it to the more modern looking Incarnadine.

Complementary white: Dimity

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality paint that goes a long way! Very impressed with the quality of this paint despite being more expensive than others. Easy to use and is water based, so no harsh chemicals required to clean brushes / rollers. The colour is warm and has depth. It changes throughout the day depending on the light and at night gives a warm cosy feeling with soft external lighting. Its just the look we wanted. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful paint :-) We spent several weeks hovering between different shades of red for our snug and in the end went for Eating Room Red in Modern Emulsion (as much as I love the Estate Emulsion, was concerned 'little fingers' may mark it). The paint goes on like a dream and is wonderful to work with. The shade changes during the day & evening depending on the lighting & we couldn't be happier with the results.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very happy with the result! I hesitated whether the result would not be too dark or lacking peace in the sitting room but with Picture Gallery Red warmth and comfort are back in the room! Before it was a nice white but this is so much better! The pictures do not even reflect who great it is.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning colour Stunning colour. Used across plaster & wood so the dead flat was the perfect finish. From a practical perspective the dead flat paint is quite thick so cutting in was more tricky. The finish was great though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dead flat eating room red Love dead flat paint but in this colour it looks very much like iron oxide paint so didn't keep and removed the paint.. the paint itself was the usual high quality product

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible Gloss Paint/Unhelpful Customer Service I love this color but had difficulty with the paint itself because it had a tremendous amount of froth and bubbling. I used Farrow and Ball primer and tried applying the paint different ways (nylon brush, foam roller, both roller then back brush) The results were terrible so I contacted customer service twice for help. The responses I received were very unhelpful and both ignored the main question which was how to address the bubbling of the paint. I've painted a lot using Benjamin Moore products and have never had this difficulty with the paint itself. I would not use Farrow and Ball again.
