London Clay

No. 244  

London Clay 5 5 13 13
Sophisticated and restful We painted the walls and slanting uprights of our loft bedroom in London Clay, with Slipper Satin on the thin uppermost ceiling strip and window recesses and Tanner's Brown on the skirting and door. The room had previously been Dulux brilliant white, and we were worried that the new colour scheme might feel dark and claustrophobic. We could not have been more wrong - the overall effect is surprisingly spacious. As other reviewers have said, this colour seems to recede when you look at it. But it creates an atmosphere of intimacy and calm sophistication. We loved it so much that we have used it to paint our bathroom, again to spectacular effect (with Tanner's Brown on the woodwork).

a wonderfully rich colour! A wonderfully warm, rich colour used to update a good but old fashioned coffee table top. With the legs sanded to a lighter hue it looks great, I'm really pleased. August 19, 2014
Great colour and great paint Used London Clay colour for our guttering and downpipes so that they blended in with the roof tiles. It does the job perfectly and was very easy to use. Also excellent service from Farrow & Ball. Thanks. July 30, 2014
The product performed the work required of it successfully. We used this product to provide an overall backround colour on a shellscheme exhibition stand at a national exhibition at the N. E. C. in Birmingham, United Kingdom. The stand displayed framed landscape Giclee prints of various sizes, both rectangular and square and this paint and its colour was a perfect foil for the artwork. The stand stood out from its neighbours and attracted customers, who commented favourably about the display. February 20, 2014
Absolutely delighted with our new look bathroom. I needed a colour to complement the new tiles in our refurbished bathroom. With no natural light, I thought white would give a good effect, but no. The luxurious ambiance was just not there. After a number of A4 sheets covered in tester pot paint. I decided to be brave and use London Clay for the wall above the sink and toilet, as it seemed to match the colour of the tiles. The result was everything I had hoped for, and more. The room looks beautiful. January 1, 2014
Sensational hall, stairs and landings This felt a very bold move on my part from my "matchstick" hall, stairs and landing but I have rarely been so pleased with a transformation....with white doors, ceilings and balustrades, my entrance hall has never looked more sophisticated yet welcoming. Thank you Farrow and Ball....you never disappoint me :-) August 25, 2013
gorgeous colour Used this on my guest room. The colour is many faceted and gives the room warmth and depth. May 20, 2013
Elegant and particularly effective in small rooms I used London Clay on the walls and ceiling of a small bedroom and it's now the elegant, sophisticated space I had hoped it could become. The surfaces seem to vanish in medium to low light. I used Estate Emulsion and the softness of the finish is exquisite; it can be set off to great effect by contrasting textures elsewhere in the room (I paired it with taffeta drapes). Gold and black look great against it, as do a wide range of reds, pinks, and purples. A ravishing color. Highly recommended. April 24, 2013
