Calke Green

No. 34  

Calke Green 3.9 5 9 9
Great colour Looks great against white and natural wood tones. Coverage is ok. I'm painting on top of wall paper and underestimated the amount I needed. Works really well in my earthy colour scheme. September 16, 2014
Great colour and beautiful finish We used Calke green in our dining room, having previously tried a much lighter olive colour which we felt was not bold enough (this was not a Farrow and Ball colour). We are very pleased with the results. The Farrow and Ball paint was clearly a better quality than the other paint we tried, the colour and the finish are of an excellent quality. The service from Farrow and Ball was also excellent. We would definitely recommend Farrow and Ball, as well as this colour in particular. April 26, 2014
An excellent colour for an exterior door. We chose Calke Green for the door to blend in with the greenery of the garden. The idea worked well and it blended the exterior colours of the garden with the house. We gilded the door furniture with gold and verdigris leaf and this complemented the Calke Green perfectly picking up the green tints of the leaf. Paint was easy to use, lovely thick texture, no runs or drips and it dried to a lovely eggshell finish. Thanks Farrow & Ball, we love your paint and colour selection. September 3, 2013
Exterior does not last long We prepared our shed extremely well and undercoated properly, then applied several coats in good weather, and yet this colour has faded rather a lot and is now a wishy-washy green. It's difficult to apply, but once it is on the colour is lovely (for as long as it lasts). July 13, 2013
Calke Green Gloss is nothing like the colour of Calke GreenExterior Eggshell 15 years ago had our Award Winning New build house painted inside and out with Exterior Eggshell, we became known as the Green house ! The South exposed aspect needed painting every 2 years elsewhere Finding that Calke green was now in gloss ,we had our decorator paint the South aspect ,it was awful ,not a subtle colour as previously , a Lime Green nothing like the original Exterior Eggshell . The decorator didn't like the finish ,the colour or way it went on , having previously done the whole house in Exterior Eggshell was very disappointed and so are we July 6, 2013
Great quality paint Spot on colour match to chart, excellent paint and ease of use brilliant - water based gloss? can't go wrong.Really pleased June 22, 2013
colour looks lighter and awful with Olive as recomended I bought this paint in eggshell to paint a kitchen window in contrast with one Olive wall and a Stone white wall. This colour looks awful with Olive - which is lovely! Caulke is much lighter and more yellow than it looks online. I'll not be as confident with complimentary colour recomendations online again unless my tin is faulty January 28, 2013
Beautiful finish This colour was perfect as a feature wall in my front room, went very well with the old white used on the other walls. Very easy to apply, two coats required and the estate emulsion gave beautiful matt finish. November 5, 2012
