Smooth & even coverage We have been converted to Farrow & Ball paint since using to transform our solid oak fitted kitchen to a very contempary cream. With the help of F&B paint 2 New worktops and new handles we have a very stylish kitchen and a complete new look. We now use F&B in every room with Archive, slipper satin, and joa's white being our favourite. November 17, 2014
Good A lovely warm coffee cream shade - definitely not white September 11, 2014
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

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.
