Not only is our baby-friendly paint gentle enough to be used on the items that your littlest ones interact with every day, it’s also tough enough to stand up to whatever life – or a determined toddler – can throw at it. Low VOC and low odour with an eco-friendly water base, our Modern and Estate ranges are the greener, safer choice for taking care of your home and all the people, big and small, who share it.


Safe & Strong


Life with little ones can be a balancing act – luckily, our Modern finishes have it down to a tee. Combining our trademark rich colours and scrubbable finishes with the gentlest of water based formulations, they offer baby-safe paint for cots, cribs, and even toys. As well as the peace of mind that comes with knowing they meet the most stringent Toy Safety Standards,* you get the freedom to give that preloved cot or well-worn toy a new lease of life, all with your favourite Farrow & Ball colours.


Calming Neutrals

When it comes to designing a room that’ll stand the test of time through your little one’s first years, toddlerhood and beyond, a neutral nursery scheme is tough to beat. As well as creating a calming, nurturing space for sleep, using a neutral background means that, as their tastes change, so can the colour scheme – it’s all a case of swapping in bright and fun accessories that suit their emerging personalities. Try baby-safe furniture paint Modern Eggshell for an instant update to well-loved pieces.

Marvellous Murals


You don’t have to be Michelangelo to create imagination-sparking spaces – a playful palette, a bright idea and a little patience are all you need. Throw in a roll of masking tape for impressively crisp edges, and you’ve got wall art mastered. Try a grey-on-grey mountainscape for a view that’s both striking and soothing, or combine brights and neutrals in blocks and stripes for a cheerful look.


*Our Estate Emulsion, Estate Eggshell, Modern Emulsion, Modern Eggshell, Exterior Masonry, Exterior Eggshell and Full Gloss have all been independently tested and approved to meet Toy Safety Standards (BS EN 71 – 3:1995 - Safety of Toys).
