love borrowed light!!! Absolutely love this colour!!!! Would have thus colour in every room if I could x October 25, 2014
lovely colour Paint order always arrives promptly and beautifully packaged. Lovely paint, great colour, easy to use - and a fabulous tin that makes a great planter afterwards! What isn't there to like about Farrow and Ball? September 25, 2014
Beautiful light blue Beautiful and restful colour which changes subtly as the light changes. However the final result is paler and less blue than I had hoped for based on a tester pot. Still we've had lots of compliments for our smart new front door. September 8, 2014
A feeling of sky and distance ( part 2 ) Here are two more pictures, but taken on a grey day . For comparison see those taken on a sunny day ( my review of 25 June 2014) . July 7, 2014
A Lovely Neutral I plan to use this for bedroom and bathroom, and think I will use Farrow and Ball's 'Borrowed Light ' rather than Benjamin Moore's 'Breath of Fresh Air', which seems to be their closest correlate. Having just painted my living room with F & B, I am completely in love with their paints. I can see the beauty in the depth of color and can tell the paints are of high quality because I can barely wash the pigment and resin off my hands after I work with them. July 4, 2014
borrowed light Really pretty, soft color. I used it in a guest bedroom. Very happy with it. June 30, 2014
A rainbow This product was just lovely. I used estate emulsion to paint a bedroom that get lots of natural light. Depending on the time of day, sunshine or even other colours in the room the paint seems to adapt and change tone/tint. Very pleased and will use again. May 20, 2014
Sublime colour. Durable on floor and stairs. Value for money. I use this product on stairs, floors and front porch, and I have bought it three times because the effect is so pleasing. The colour is subtle and restful and I'm often asked what paint and colour I used,as I let my house to visitors in the Summer. Your order online and delivery service is first class. I am much pleased with Farrow and Ball Visit gardencottagecoverack.com to see for yourself March 26, 2014
