A fresh aqua tone

This mid aqua is named after a much valued, early member of our creative team - and yes, the pun is intended! Teresa's Green owes its freshness to a rich blue base and its warmth to soft green undertones. In the middle of our range of aquas, Teresa’s Green has a calming and therapeutic effect, but still feels cheerful when combined with delicate shades like White Tie.

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 Just the job. Brilliant paint as always. I bought Teresa’s Green to paint in my small hallway which had been painted in a Eau de Nil colour from another supplier. I read on line that this was a similar shade, it is you can’t really tell the difference in the shade just Farrow & Ball is far better quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teresa's Green is sublime This is one of the most wonderful greens! It does show quite a bit lighter and less saturated in sunlight. I painted my front door which receives direct sunlight for much of the day in two coats. Still too light for my dark siding, so I'll be tinting it slightly with a touch of Green Smoke or maybe Vert de Terre. Thank you for making wonderful paints and for making it so easy to acquire them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from chameleon green. This color is so....i don't know. It's a chameleon, in a good way. Sometimes it's green and sometimes it's light aqua (at night, a little grey), and it's fun watching the colors change down my hallway throughout the day. I was looking for something to brighten a dark hallway, and this made it cheery. I used both modern emulsion and dead flat. I must say the dead flat took more coats and the modern emulsion rolled much smoother (but there's a sheen). I'm torn on which I like better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour! I recently bought Theresa’s Green and White Tie paint and I Absolutely love the colours! We have an east facing room and the colours look great in all light, but especially first thing in the morning in the sunshine! The quality is great and so easy to put on, I’ll definitely be buying Farrow and Ball again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in north facing room My north facing living room is painted in Teresa Green and I absolutely love it. Looks fresh during the day - even when cloudy but cosy at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic We just painted my daughter's small east-facing bedroom this color. We used Pavilion Blue for the ceiling but kept the trim and the doors Teresa's Green. It is an absolutely gorgeous color and she was thrilled and surprised that there was no lingering unpleasant paint odor that comes with other brands. It was pricier than other brands but the trade-off is worth it and I have no intentions to repaint for another 10 years or so!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, but think twice about Dead Flat Lovely colour, but think twice about Dead Flat. We normally use Modern Emulsion and I would say it goes further. We used two 5L tubs for a low-ceiling loft room, which was a lot, and coat considerably more than Modern Emulsion. Yes, it goes on wood/radiators, but due to how flat it is, you may not want to use this on highly used areas like doors, not that we had enough left over to do this anyway. Next time I would spend less and go for the usual emulsion and eggshell combo, which I think would look better too.
