Farrow and Ball Tallow

If you’re looking for a rich cream colour to illuminate your walls, Farrow and Ball Tallow is a fantastic choice. This warm cream is perfect for brightening up darker rooms, and because of the way it reflects light and the depth of colour, it almost glows. The result is a space that’s both bright and cosy, so it’s an ideal choice for living rooms, hallways, and bedrooms.

Before we start, a word of warning. Many decorators will say that Tallow can be colour matched with a cheaper brand. However, I would definitely not recommend trying to colour-match Tallow. While the colours might look the same in the tin or on paper, once the paint is dry on the walls, you will see a big difference in the finish. Cheaper brands simply don’t give the same ‘Glowing’ effect that you get with Tallow. If you are unsure, make sure you get samples before buying the paint you need.

What Colour Goes Well With Tallow?

Looking for the perfect accent colours to go with Tallow? Look no further.

  • Pink: Setting Plaster – This glorious dusty pink is one of my favourite Farrow and Ball Colours. When paired with Tallow it creates a warm, playful colour scheme that will work particularly well in sunny rooms to create a pace that’s full of life and joy.
  • Green: Vert de Terre – This lovely sage green paint colour looks wonderful with Tallow, and is perfect for creating relaxed, timeless spaces.
  • White: Wimborne White – A soft white that will look great on woodwork and trim to create a fres, bright space.
  • Brown: London Stone – This warm mid brown works well with Tallow to create a natural, grounded look.
