Sudbury Yellow

No. 51  

Sudbury Yellow 3.6 5 5 5
Gives warmth and light to an old cottage We have used Farrow and Ball paints on our old cottage for a number of years. The choice of colours means we can always find something suitable for an old property that is not always suited to more contemporary colours. Easy to apply and the on line ordering and delivery service is excellent. October 19, 2014
A high quality user friendly paint that oozes original patina. A rich colour of paint that was easy to paint with. It has a nice consistency and gave great coverage. I was looking for original colours which i had found in patches on my walls. This paint gave me that depth of originality and compliments with a chalkiness that oozes period charm March 17, 2014
Eh! Like the previous review, I was disappointed with the how bright this colour came up. We had originally settled on Sudbury Yellow because as Farrow & Ball suggested, if you want a yellow that is more 'sophisticated' go for a colour with more green in it. You can see the green in the egg shell we have bought for the wood work. The estate emulsion came up a more peachy colour. We have a two tone room! Not happy. December 2, 2013
warm and inviting We love this colour and it looks great on a feature wall November 15, 2012
Sudbury yellow the colour came up much 'brighter' than expected. I had hoped for more of an ochre #'old'# colour as painting an old pice of furniture. September 23, 2012
