Think twice for North facing Firstly, I love this colour. We tested it in a few places in the house and it looks beautiful anywhere with a south facing light. It has so much character, changing with the time of day and I don't think you would ever get bored with it. BUT the place it fitted best in our design decor was the kitchen which is North facing. I tried to love it in there as I really wanted to use the colour but I'm afraid it just looked a little bit gungy. I know, I know, I'm sorry... in the hallway it was sophisticated, light and bright but with depth of pigment and really just delicious and satisfying. But don't assume it looks the same everywhere. Incidentally we've ordered skylight for the North facing kitchen which was very "clean" by comparison. June 7, 2014
Poor coverage I only ever use Farrow and Ball after being introduced to the paints a few years ago due to the quality of colour and quality of the product. Unfortunately I have been disappointed by this product. The colour had the warmth and depth I have come to expect but I had real problems with coverage. I have had to give between three and five coats as the paint kept leaving patches. This colour was for the walls and I bought Farrow and Ball for the ceiling and had no problems. I'm afraid for the first time the paint did not reach the expectations I have come to expect. I only use Farrow and Ball paint roller. June 2, 2014
Classic colour Great paint, fantastic to work with. I found it easy to get an even coverage and it gave a superb finish. Unfortunately (for me), I have decided I prefer a different colour (I should have got a sample first!), so I am sure I'll be placing another order soon. April 25, 2014
Love the colour. The decorator said the quality didn't seem as good as Farrow & Ball paints once were. April 22, 2014
Great colour not stocked by "high street" paint shops Love this green. Very sagey. Great kitchen colour, I think. I have a similar F&B one in my hallway and couldnt find anything near it from the well known, more household names. Best feature of all F&B paints - washable. Wipe kids fingerprints off it as many times as you like and it doesnt fade. I use it for craft though and paint wooden hearts with it :) March 19, 2014
Lovely paint, but slightly soft. Very nice colour, used for kitchen cupboard refurbishment. Lovely paint to use and apply, with good finish. Once fully dry, the paint is slightly soft, giving concerns about durability. March 12, 2014
Versatile color Very pleased with Cooking Apple Green. I've used it in my dining room for the hutch and the lower wall, under the chair rail. Above the chair raill, and adjacent to the hutch, is Borrowed Light on the upper wall. In another part of the house, I've painted my mantle with it, and had painted the hearth Down Pipe. The walls and ceiling in this large space are Pointing, with a small accent wall in Red Earth and a bookcase in Pigeon. March 1, 2014
Emulsion Tester - not great I bought an emulsion tester to look at the colour before I ordered eggshell for wood. The colour wasn't suitable but I wouldn't have ordered the eggshell even if it was. I thought the quality of the emulsion was poor - very thin and you would certainly need a few coats of this to paint the walls. February 28, 2014
