Popular Farrow & Ball Colors Matched to Behr

I am constantly drawn to the beautiful and popular Farrow and Ball paint colors. Unfortunately, the accessibility and pricepoint are two reasons why I have yet to purchase this paint brand.

I know this is old school, but there is something about purchasing paint in a store that brings me comfort! Farrow and Ball paints are sold in limited stores so the purchase would be made online. While I am not opposed to purchasing online, the biggest detractor is the price point. I am usually scraping together my budget for DIY projects, so $115 for a gallon of paint is hard to justify.

Until I take the plunge and test the actual Farrow and Ball paint brand, I am happy with using paint color dupes at a more affordable price. Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore dealers offer color matching where they will match the exact Farrow & Ball color. Because all paint brands have different paint formulas, it will not be a 1:1 match, but it will be very close! The cost for a gallon of BM or SW paint is closer to $70. They also frequently offer discounts of 30-40%.

Big box stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot do not have the ability to color match but they offer a large variety of affordable paint to choose from. I decided to create a Farrow and Ball paint dupes round-up using Behr paint that is sold at Home Depot stores. A gallon of Behr interior paint costs about $30.


As I mentioned above, this is not an exact 1:1 match, but it is very close. These Behr color options are a great solution if you do not have the budget to purchase Farrow & Ball paint.

1 | Farrow & Ball CalamineBehr Paris White

Popular Farrow & Ball paint color dupes with Behr paint | Calamine

Farrow and Ball colors feel like “adult” paint colors. For example, Calamine is a beautiful light pink that doesn’t feel too bubblegum or childlike. I am a sucker for pink walls that act as a neutral and Paris White by Behr seems to be a perfect substitute for Calamine.

This round-up is focused on Behr paint options, however, Floral Linen by Glidden/PPG is apparently an exact match to Calamine and is available at Home Depot.

2 | Farrow & Ball MizzleBehr Balance Green

Another paint color favorite is the muddy gray/green family. It is the perfect color to bring the outdoors in while adding warmth and life to a space. Mizzle is a beautiful neutral color and I have saved MANY images with this color as the backdrop on the walls.

Balance Green by Behr is a little lighter but could achieve a similar effect in a space. This is especially true if a room is a little darker or is northern facing with little direct sunlight.

3 | Farrow & Ball RadicchioBehr Rocking Chair Red

Popular Farrow & Ball paint color dupes with Behr paint | Radicchio

The red paint colors can be intimidating to use because a design can easily feel dated if the wrong shade is chosen. I may be scarred from my high school bedroom design with red walls and zebra prints everywhere. Radicchio feels like the perfect warm red that gives London flat or quaint cottage vibes. Rocking Chair Red by Behr is this Farrow and Ball dupe.

A safe place to test the waters with such a bold color is on your front door. A red door is so cheerful and welcoming, it also looks great with fresh greenery framing it.

4 | Farrow & Ball Dix BlueBehr Provence Blue

Popular Farrow & Ball paint color dupes with Behr paint | Dix Blue

Dix Blue is another color that feels so stately! This rich greenish blue has an aged and vintage look to it. Provence Blue by Behr is another rich blue that looks like it would have been on the walls of country estates 150 years ago.

5 | Farrow & Ball PigeonBehr Urban Nature

Pigeon is a very popular blue gray neutral that looks great in so many spaces. Urban Nature by Behr looks a little more like a soft green gray, but is very close in color. These colors are like chameleons and may look even more like eachother depending on the lighting of a room.

I particularly like the color Pigeon on paneled walls for a relaxed vibe.

6 | Farrow & Ball ArsenicBehr Veiled Chameleon

Arsenic is such a unique color and I admire anyone who can design a room with it! Veiled Chameleon by Behr is an affordable substitute. Below is a beautiful example of how this green can be incorporated into a space. The boot room cabinetry is painted Arsenic and the walls are Setting Plaster, another Farrow and Ball favorite.

7 | Farrow & Ball Drawing Room BlueBehr Soulful Music

Popular Farrow & Ball paint color dupes with Behr paint | Drawing Room Blue

I love moody blue hues in a home! There is something so regal and stately about a deep blue wall color like Drawing Room Blue.

Soulful Music by Behr is a very similar color option that will achieve the same effect. The great thing about this deep blue is that it looks fantastic in any space – kitchen cabinets, living room, dining room, bathrooms, and bedrooms!

I used a deep blue (Cyberspace by Sherwin Williams) in our master bedroom and it looks lovely without being too bold.

8 | Farrow & Ball Brinjal Behr Rich Bordeaux

Brinjal is another moody paint color that I have saved dozens of times! I love how this burgundy color looks in smaller spaces like bathrooms and mudrooms. Rich Bordeaux by Behr is a close match to this deep purple/brown by Farrow and Ball.

9 | Farrow & Ball Setting PlasterBehr Sonoran Desert

Setting Plaster is one of my favorite pink neutrals and no one uses it better than Heidi Caillier. This soft, dusty pink has yellow undertones to create a cozy feel and looks fantastic in bedrooms. Sonoran Desert by Behr is another great option for a peachy pink neutral.

10 | Farrow & Ball Green SmokeBehr Mountain Pine

Popular Farrow & Ball paint color dupes with Behr paint | Green Smoke

Greenish blue paint colors create such a cozy mood when added to walls. Green smoke is another versatile earth tone that brings nature inside.

Mountain Pine by Behr is a similar color that looks to pull a little more blue.

11 | Farrow & Ball MatchstickBehr Macaroon Cream

Popular Farrow & Ball paint color dupes with Behr paint | Matchstick

Matchstick, named after the light-colored wood of a match, is a beautiful creamy color. With yellow undertones, this color adds liveliness to any room. It looks great when paired with white accents. Macaroon Cream by Behr is a little lighter than Matchstick and a great option other than stark white walls.

12 | Farrow & Ball Down PipeBehr Astronomical

Down Pipe is a deep blue-gray that creates a dramatic effect when used on walls or cabinetry. The “all gray” trend is slowly dying but this gray is anything but boring. Astronomical by Behr is a great substitute for this bold hue.

I used a dark, deep gray for our dining room and I love how it brings the drama! I color matched the dark gray to cabinets in our kitchen, so it is not a standard color option available.

13 | Farrow & Ball India YellowBehr Golden Rice

Popular Farrow & Ball paint color dupes with Behr paint | India Yellow

I LOVE this muted mustard by Farrow and Ball! Yellow is another paint color that is intimidating to me because it very easily can look like a baby nursery or Waffle House. India Yellow is the perfect moody yellow that adds warmth and coziness to a room. Golden Rice by Behr is another lovely mustard that would look awesome on cabinets!

Popular Farrow & Ball paint color dupes with Behr paint | Skimming Stone

Skimming Stone is an off-white color with gray undertones that pairs well with bold colors like Pelt or lighter colors like Wimborne White. Baby Artichoke by Behr is said to be an exact match of the Skimming Stone color, although it does look to be lighter when comparing both colors online.

Fwiw home depot absolutely color matches to many farrow and ball colors, I've done it a few times, so does sherwin williams and Benjamin Moore (I've bought several fb colors from a bm store)

You are right! As long as they have the fan deck with the color formula they can color match. I know that Sherwin Williams can color match based on a color sample you bring in (like a piece of peeled paint) which isn't available everywhere, but most paint stores can mimic other paint brand colors.
