Breakfast Room Green

No. 81  

Breakfast Room Green 4.6 5 7 7
Extraordinary color We took a chance painting our dining room in semi-gloss on this color and it is the most stunning room. This green is unlike any other green color- it's not kelly, not lichen, not gray,it's fresh and calming all at once. Absolutely beautiful in a high gloss. February 17, 2014
Beautiful and rich color I used a sample on my wall to test the color. It is absolutely beautiful. A true green. I love it, but the lady helping me pick out colors said that it was too green, and she wanted something more neutral. So instead, we're going with Cooking Apple Green, Ball Green, and Vert de Terre, which are much lighter and more neutral. If I had a bigger house and had extra rooms, I would use it in my office or even a guest bedroom. As the name suggests, it would be perfect in a sunny room. I am going to dream about my future home where I can use this color. February 9, 2014
surprised by the colour I bought this colour without asking for a colour card and was astonished to see such a big difference between what appears on the screen and the actual colour. If so many on-line stores can give excellent appreciation of what they are selling (clothes, carpets with very subtle tones, museums, galleries..) why can't Farrow and Ball make an extra effort to show true colours. Because this Breakfast green reminds me a lot of moss green I would never have bought this colour if I had had a chance to see it. Nevertheless after paintings the walls with Breakfast Green I had to acknowledge that this colour has a true mystery to it. It is very soothing. And Modern Emulsion is a wonderfully thick paint. Beautiful quality!. Nevertheless I would recommend Farrow and Ball to send with every purchase a colour card. September 4, 2013
Fantastic colour, reasonable coverage - bit runny when painting a gutter overhead ! Fantastic colour, reasonable coverage - bit runny when painting a gutter overhead ! August 26, 2013
MMmmm nice! It's not that easy being green Having to spend each day the color of the leaves When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold Or something much more colorful like that It's not easy being green It seems you blend in with so many other ordinary things And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're Not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water Or stars in the sky But green's the color of Spring And green can be cool and friendly-like And green can be big like an ocean, or important Like a mountain, or tall like a tree When green is all there is to be It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why Wonder, I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful And I think it's what I want to be November 12, 2012
Rich, vibrant, rewarding colour. Hoping to avoid a reno, wishing a detente between the various shades of sixties green tiles in the bathroom and wanting to find a paint that would stand up to the task without absorbing dirt like a blotter or chipping, I tried this ravishing colour on my old etched tile floor. Though the sales representative recommended against painting ceramic tile with Farrow and Ball floorpaint, I did anyway. It has been magnificent. I threw an inexpensive knotted rug on top and pretended that I designed the bath this way on purpose. For the first time all the greens get along happily together and I have something unique and durable to boot. Yes, you pay a little more and yes, it's worth it. The colour is so radiant that it lifts my spirits every time I enter the room. (I would add that this is a low-traffic area that is not exposed to a lot of water and is probably a temporary solution but it works for me for the time being and by that I mean that I will eventually just repaint with Farrow and Ball). I would also add that I use a gentle eco-cleaner and rinse it immediately, cleaning with a damp cloth only but so far no chipping, scratching or lifting in four months of daily use. November 2, 2012
Exquisite Green This color appealed to me on the chart, but on the walls, it is absolutely dreamy, enchanting. . . . I love the color green, and Spring is being ushered in right now with all its marvelous green, and Breakfast Room Green is elegant and reflects the exquisite beauty of Spring. It is soft, rich, and perhaps has a bit of gray. I have never seen another green like it, and I am schooled in various colors and companies which make paint. March 25, 2012
