It's a wonderfully warm color that changes throughout the day. The color is warm and soothing in my north facing living room. Others have commented on the color changing throughout the day. My painter, using F&B for the first time, liked the application. I'd recommend F&B anytime. August 26, 2014
Wonderful We love the colour and the FB colours we have used throughout our home. Modern emulsion wipes down well, holds its colour and gives excellent coverage. July 8, 2014
Beautiful colour and finish - but very difficult to maintain I have painted the majority of my house in Archive Estate. I love the colour and I love the look of the finish. But I repeatedly get the painter back to touch up because the slightest brush up against a wall, a wipe with a soft dry cloth, etc. causes marks. Its painful that you see this in certain light. I wish I would have used originally the Modern Emulsion - maybe I would be happier now. I have repeatedly had to buy new paint for the touch-ups, and its very expensive and only available in 4l cans.

Warm colour - great in small or large areas I chose this colour for my hallway. Greys would look too cold, yellows too overwhelming. This colour is used with a navy patterned carpet, works like a dream. The ceiling is All White, the woodwork is Slipper Satin and the Bannister rails are Red Earth. I've been using Farrow Ball for years, nothing else will do. I've also used this in a north facing bedroom with terracotta fabric - looks gorgeous. use this colour with dark blues, terracotta's, rusts, beige's and dove greys. June 22, 2014
Lovely warm colour Used the eggshell version of the paint in my bathroom. Lovely warm rich colour not too yellow so gives a glow to the woodwork. Paint and colour have both stayed true and like new for the last four years+ despite the water and steam produced. May 11, 2014
very lovely This is a lovely shade.very relaxing and easy to apply. December 31, 2013
this paint came out as a grey green colour and does not have the durability of the paints we used before from F and B I used this paint in a very large and irregularly shaped landing and hallway in the hope that it would generate some warmth. The floor is covered in a cream carpet and the paintwork and ceilings are new white. It didn't work inspite of three coats of paint. The colour appears with a green tinge and instead of a warm and welcoming hall it is now a cold green grey. Shame it was all so expensive as will have to start again. However the range of colours from F and B is very limited. We have used F and B paints before and were very impressed with its durability when we had to wipe marks off. With this paint however (not sure if it is a new formula) when we had to wipe marks off the area went shiney and shows against the more matt surround. So generally disappointed. We used estate emulsion. September 18, 2013
excellent service, great paint Easy to use website, fast delivery and excellent paint. A bit pricy but you get what you pay for! July 17, 2013

Darker and warmer than Joa's White, this colour would normally be seen as a buff and not an off-white unless used with strong dark colours.
