Wimborne White

No. 239  

Wimborne White 4.6 5 52 52
A soft white that's been kissed not the nose by pale linen I was almost put off by the initial shot on this colour's page on the F&B website (the one with the Elvis pic) as it looked too 'buttermilk' for what I had in mind. However, I found other pics which made me reconsider. I was looking for a soft white with no yellow undertones, but which didn't look dull. The room is east facing and I wanted it to reflect light without feeling stark. This colour is the perfect white. It's not too dazzling, and it carries no cream undertones. It's a classy expensive white, like it's been kissed on the nose with pale French linen. The wall needed three coats but I did the first with a cheaper matt undercoat in a similar tone, then finished off with two F&B. It will complement any colour. November 15, 2014
Gorgeous White Used this for the furniture in our bedroom with Pale Powder on the walls and it works beautifully together. August 23, 2014
Faultless in all dimensions Not only was the paint exactly what I wanted but dealing with Farrow and Ball on line was a real pleasure--easy to use website, clear advice and delivery at a time of my choosing. Very good experience. June 7, 2014
Beautiful, warm white Perfect shade of a warm white needed for a room which can be cold in winter but a very hot sunny room in summer so perfect shade for both all seasons June 6, 2014
Soft and subtle A beautiful soft white which doesn't glare.....blends beautifully with all the F&B estate emulsions I've used ....defines with no harshness.....love it. May 20, 2014
full gloss paint - brushes dont wash out! whilst I love the colour and the ease of use of this full gloss I didnt find my brush washing out at all easily with soapy water as it states on the tin. The bristles went hard and clumped together and had to throw the brush away and start again ,so I was rather annoyed May 7, 2014
Wonderful warm Wimborne! I originally only wanted to paint the walls of two rooms in our newish house in this colour from its box-standard builders' magnolia. But then I loved it so much we did another two bedrooms as well! It is a chalky, milky antique white which goes very well with our brilliant white cornicing and ceilings. The paint goes on very smoothly whilst cutting in and on the roller. We used two coats. It also is a lovely backdrop for our vintage furnishings and furniture. I have a very neutral scheme with lots of textures. In the image, you can see a tiny bit of cornicing at the top and how Wimborne White looks against brilliant white. There is also very little smell and the paint dries quite quickly so we could do two coats in one day. The only downside and why I didn't give it five stars is because it scratches quite easily. So keep some paint back for touch ups. Now I am thinking of also painting the kitchen and bathrooms in this colour and doing our hallway and landing in Strong White. Watch this space! April 20, 2014
Ok for indoor use This product is fine for indoor use but the outdoor paint product is simply not good enough and cracks and flakes within 18 months . Not recommended. April 1, 2014
