Joa's White

No. 226  

Joa's White 4.8 5 16 16
Matched perfectly in my kitchen Rich latte colour looks perfect against oak kitchen top and off white cupboards September 27, 2014
Looks great in West facing room but slightly too peach in our East facing room We wanted a white that was not yellow or green or cold or bright- something with a warmth to it. Joa's looks lovely in the east facing bedroom but is too peach for my liking in the West facing room. It almost looks pink. I can imagine it looking great in a Cotswold stone house or even by the seaside in a room flooded with light but in our Victorian town house it doesn't quite work. I wanted sandy as opposed to peachy. We are using skimming stone in the rest of the house so it will be interesting to compare. I have a feeling we may replace the Joa's with skimming stone in this room. Otherwise, used Dimity on the ceiling and pointing on the woodwork, both of which are absolutely gorgeous. Dimity is greyer than I thought it would be but just lovely- even our decorator said what a beautiful ceiling colour it was and how refreshing it was that we had not gone for plain white.

Superb product As usual this Farrow & Ball paint is a pleasure to use and I wouldn't consider using any other brand. August 29, 2014
Beautiful Joa's White I love the colour and the paint went on smoothly. My only gripe is that the paint has already scratched after just a couple of days. June 11, 2014
Amazing quality, very happy We are renovating an 1800's cottage and have used the Estate emulsion for all walls and ceilings. Looks beautiful and gives the cottage such warmth and character. We have used Dimity eggshell for all woodwork, which compliments Joa's white perfectly. June 9, 2014
Soft latte colour which is very susceptible to the light This is a great soft latte colour which looks great with our Cotswold stonework. It is very suscpetible to the light (looks different on the wall adjacent and opposite the windows) so you need to think about whether you can achieve a consistent look with it in your room.

Easy to use and depth of colour is excellent. Rapid safe delivery. Beautiful chalky finish to product, exactly as described. The best quality emulsion I have ever used, in fact, I doubt if I will use any other manufacturer's paint in the future. February 11, 2014
lovely colour for a period property Have used this in the sitting room of our 17th Century farmhouse. It creates a lovely warm feeling to the room, and enhances the exposed cob wall and oak beam. July 24, 2013

For devotees of Off-White, this colour though just darker, has none of the coolness or perceived greenish nature of Off-White.
