Farrow and Ball
Farrow and Ball use age old, traditional methods to make their paint. These trusted methods produce paints with brilliant depth of colour, that give great coverage and as a bonus – do not harm you or the environment. Farrow and Ball's handcrafted wallpaper is also created using their own paints and traditional methods giving them a unique texture.
Our Farrow & Ball Paint section is divided into four areas:-
Sample Pots. The Farrow and Ball Colour Card is one of the best on the market but even so we strongly recommend purchasing a 100ml Farrow & Ball Sample Pot before finally settling on a colour. Paint colours often look very different in situ. Try painting onto a piece of paper or card and place it in the room to be decorated. See how the colour changes at different times of the day. Do try before you buy!
Interior Finishes. Farrow and Ball paints are water based, eco friendly and comply with the latest EU environmental legislation regarding the VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content of paints. Farrow & Ball finishes are low in odour and classified as either low or minimal VOC. These water based paints can be applied to surfaces previously painted in an oil based finish. Farrow & Ball's Estate® Emulsion and Estate® Eggshell are popular choices for internal walls and woodwork, but among F&B's many finishes are specialist paints suitable for kitchens & bathrooms, ceilings, floors and metal. Browse through our Interior Finishes section below.
Exterior Finishes. The well loved Farrow & Ball colour palette is also available in a full range of exterior finishes, allowing you to continue the distinctive Farrow & Ball look to the outside of your home and in your garden. F&B's exterior paints combine the signature depth of colour, with durable and hard-wearing formulations, designed and tested to withstand the elements. Exterior Finishes has been divided into four parts:- F&B Masonry Paint, great for exterior walls; Exterior Eggshell, ideal for exterior wood, metal and even stone; Full Gloss, the traditional finish! Full Gloss is an ideal finish for front doors, railings and kitchen cupboards or even for creating an extra bit of style - such as when used to paint a ceiling or feature wall; Limewash. This Farrow and Ball traditional finish is designed to be readily useable on interior and exterior walls and ceilings. Limewashed surfaces allow the fabric of the structure to breathe.
Preparation. Care in preparation and the right use of primers is fundemantal for a good job. Take a look at our Farrow & Ball preparation section to find out how to prepare internal and external walls prior to applying the final colour. Here you will find specialist primers for many surfaces as well as undercoats, knot and resin block and masonry stabiliser.
