Yellowcake 4.3 5 6 6
Great Colour We love this colour and have up-cycled an old rocking chair for our son's nursery. Good coverage and fab vibrant colour! August 20, 2014
Perfect for Mid Century Modern House I recently bought a 1965 split level. We are in the midst of restoring this house, and undoing some dreadful 1980's renovations. Our kitchen is North facing, and was in much need of a lift. In addition to replacing the cupboards with Ikea Abstrackt in gloss white, we painted the walls Yellowcake, and I am totally freaking out how utterly perfect it is with the gloss white cupboards. Gives a huge dose of character and modern charm to the entire house which is otherwise mostly painted Cornforth White / Ammonite. August 4, 2014
Sunshine on a rainy day... We have used this colour on one accent wall in the living room of our 1960s Span house and are very pleased with the result. We used the Estate Emulsion as we wanted a more chalky finish. The paint is of high quality and our decorator found it very easy to use. We bought the paint from the Farrow and Ball shop in Richmond - staff there were very friendly and well informed. We are now thinking about painting another wall... May 7, 2014
Great vintage look. I used this product to paint a lovely old chair. After that I distressed the chair. I achieved just the right vintage look and now have a wacky pop of colour and vintage chic in my hall. Thank you Farrow and Ball. March 9, 2014
Beware this colour can look Lime green. Bought this colour to paint an old chair, unfortunately it looks Acid Lime Green under artificial light. Not the coulour I was going for at all. March 3, 2014
A little ray of sunshine This intense, acid-bright yellow is a perfect accent colour. I have two chairs in my predominantly grey bathroom and I have painted one in Yellowcake and the other in Downpipe. The yellow is an unexpected 'pop' against the moodiness of the greys. It's a colour that makes you smile. October 16, 2013

A classic bright yellow named to reflect the revival of the ‘homemade’. Much used in kitchens during the 1960s but equally popular in 21st century homes. White & Light Tones Undercoat.
