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. 

For interior and exterior wood and metal

Full Gloss is an ultra-high-gloss water based finish suitable for use on both interior and exterior surfaces. It is mostly used on wood and metal trim, but it can also bring a touch of glamour to walls and ceilings, and is a popular choice for front doors.

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

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

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour, beautiful finish The colour is perfect and the paint quality is so much better than I remember F&B being. The dead flat finish is beautiful. Even the first coat went on like a dream and the coverage was excellent. It was well worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bedroom makeover Used DeNimes for the first time and such a warm deep blue. The paint as always is a great quality and a joy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from De Nimes downstairs loo Really pleased with the result. It’s the perfect blue -grey hue that I had hoped for. I think it adds a touch of drama and sophistication to my downstairs loo! My husband managed to paint it all in one day and it only needed 1 coat using modern emulsion. No nasty odour, in fact he thought the paint smelt nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sophisticated and bold for our downstairs loo! I used De Nimes Dead Flat to colour drench our cloakroom and in true F&B style, the colour changes and evolves throughout the day as it responds to the natural light. It’s fabulous and the result is just beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptionally beautiful I was a bit concerned about the greenish tint, more of a teal hue, noticed after applying the sample. After much deliberation, I decided to paint the whole entrance wall. I am so delighted ! The teal hue disappeared and the result was an exceptional, time-less grey blue. It contrast beautifully with my walnut main door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely deep blue/gray/green color I wanted some contrast with the light beige walls and ceilings in my home, so chose this as the color for my small kitchen and two other accent walls. I have found that so many colors look great against this, as do light colored woods and anything metallic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, so beautiful I used De Nîmes modern emulsion in my large brightly lit bathroom, having struggled to find something to pair with the existing peppermint tiles. De Nîmes looks great; sophisticated and welcoming and makes a great backdrop for the white bathroom suite. I’m hoping it wears well when the steam hits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour! I used Drab on all woodwork, Lime White on the ceiling and De Nïmes on all walls (except one that has a linen wallpaper). A beautiful combination that gives my bedroom such a special, rich, historic feeling! Two coats of De Nïmes estate emulsion were more than enough. It covers really well and even and is easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful cozy color I recently changed my (north light) primary bedroom from white to De Nimes and I couldn't be happier. Beautiful color with low odor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful coverage and color We bought samples of De Nimes and Stiffkey blue for our nursery. In our room, which is low on natural night, De Nimes was quite grey with a blue/green hint. For my purposes, I settled on Stiffkey but De Nimes had a lot of votes. (For more details, Stiffkey reads as a true navy with hints of matte grey/black).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful rich colour Love this colour. It’s a really deep blue green that goes beautifully with other rich colours. I tried lots of other testers but I only ever need one F&B tester and it was perfect for what I was looking for. I’ve used it in my ensuite and had enough left to do my other bathroom with different styling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely cozy color with incredible pigmentation I used this in a bedroom and it was just perfect. It’s a really interesting color that is both soft and bold. It’s reasonably deep while still clearly reading as blue in lower light situations. It can function as a kind of neutral the way jeans do for an outfit. The pigmentation is rich and dynamic and almost velvety in quality. Farrow and Ball paint is excellent and De Nimes was instantly a favorite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classy colour I love this colour and have just had my hallway painted in it. I thought it may be too dark at first but it’s turned out really well and lots of people have commented upon it. Depending on the time of day it can be blue tones or grey. Love Fartow and Ball paint. This is the first time I’ve bought modern emulsion but the coverage doesn’t have too much of a sheen to it and is great at wiping off fingerprints in a high traffic area as stairs and hallway.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice calm colour Used Denimes modern emulsion on walls and Pavilion Grey estate eggshell on matchboarding in downstairs loo and pleased with the result. I water it down a bit and do an extra coat. Goes on a bit better in my view.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful color but... I used this in an office and love the color - beautiful tone, depth and finish but I definitely had to be more careful with the painting technique. I finished the room with 2 coats ( 2 gallons) but then I noticed color variations from the application on one wall. I tried to touch up areas and that didn't seem to help. Im not sure at this point if I need another full coat on the wall or if I should just let it go. I probably won't notice as much when art work etc. is placed but a little frustrating after so much time spent with the darker color. I am almost out of paint and not really wanting to spend on another gallon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult colour Painted a large main bedroom feature wall with it last year, found it extremely difficult to use. (and I've use F&B colours in every room in the house) The colour showed up any imperfections very clearly even though i stirred it longer than any other colour I've ever used. Although the emulsion is a lovely colour, i had to repaint in an alternate F&B colour before i was satisfied with the outcome.
