Farrow & Ball Exterior Masonry
Farrow & Ball Exterior Masonry is the perfect choice for your exterior walls. No matter whether you are painting your house walls or your garden walls, Farrow & Ball Exterior Masonry is what you need.
The product is extremely tough, hard-wearing and durable. Plus it also has the hallmark Farrow & Ball flat matt appearance. The highly breathable, fungal and water resistant formula helps to combat damp in walls, and is resistant to peeling, cracking, chalking, blistering and colour fade for up to 15 years*. However it is not suitable for painting onto highly alkaline or very porous surfaces.
*Providing it has been applied in accordance with our Product Advice Sheets
Take some care though! Check the walls before painting. If the surface is not great, give it a good brushing and use Farrow & Ball’s Masonry & Plaster Stabilising Primer to bind the surface.
The Beginnings of an Exterior Scheme
You can create fabulous schemes outside your home and in the garden with Farrow & Ball colours. When it comes to choosing colour, there are no rights or wrongs, but do think about some of these factors:
• The aspect of your property and surrounding area.
• Consider the period of your property and the style and colour of neighbouring buildings; in particular, whether you wish to create a complementary or contrasting scheme.
• Look for dominant features like brickwork, natural wood and expanses of other colours. These could be paved or gravelled areas, lawns, fencing, shrubs and even flowers. Any of these can affect colour choice.
• When decorating outside, you can usually go a shade or two darker than you would inside because you mostly see exterior colours in daylight. If you are considering using Slipper Satin try Off-White, or Pigeon instead of French Gray.
• To create a flow between the interior of your home and the exterior, use the same colour outside on a garden wall or a piece of furniture. This will help connect the two spaces together.
• To make a feature of your entrance, paint your front door and frame in one colour to help make it look bigger and more imposing.
• Layer colours outside just as you would inside to create added interest. Try using a mixture of colours on garden furniture such as Mizzle on chairs, with a table top painted in Old White and table legs in Mouse’s Back.
