Meet Modern Emulsion

Written on 1st October 2020

You’re in the right place for a kitchen and bathroom paint that’ll stay looking fresh, a washable paint for muddy boot rooms and hallways, or a baby-safe paint for nurseries and children’s rooms. Our multi-talented Modern Emulsion boasts a range of benefits that make it ideally suited to the demands of modern living. Below, we’ve collected some of our favourite looks for the busiest spaces in the home, plus little insights to get you better acquainted with our most versatile emulsion.


Because Modern Emulsion is washable and wipeable, it makes it an excellent kitchen paint. Splatters of sauce and splashes of wine are no match for its smooth surface, which helps stains run off and makes the paint easy to clean. So, whether you’ve been baking with little ones or a bit overzealous with your wok, the results can be easily wiped away. For the perfect pairing, take your cues from our followers and try ultra-tough Modern Eggshell on kitchen cabinets.


Hallway walls can be hardest hit by kicked-off shoes, runaway scooters and muddy post-walk paws. Modern Emulsion’s super-tough finish makes it resistant to everyday knocks, scuffs, and scrapes, so you can have any hall colour you like, knowing that it’ll say looking beautiful for longer. Browse these inspiring examples to see how our social media followers are styling their hallways with Farrow & Ball.


With Modern Emulsion, there’s no need to seek out a specialist bathroom paint finish with a limited colour range just to keep your walls and ceilings looking fresh. As durable in the bathroom as it is in any other space, Modern Emulsion contains a preservative that means it’s protected against mould, so you can keep those long, steamy showers and have your dream colour palette too. Check out these colourful looks for a hit of bathroom inspiration.

Children’s Rooms

Child-proof and child-safe, Modern Emulsion is a win-win for kids’ rooms and nurseries. Rigorously tested against a variety of stains including felt-tip pens, it’s also low-VOC and certified safe in accordance with Toy Safety Standards thanks to its eco-friendly water base. Plus, with every colour in our range available to choose from in Modern Emulsion and Modern Eggshell, you can let your imagination run wild, just as our followers have done here.
