Dead Salmon

No. 28  

Dead Salmon 4.9 5 7 7
A bit disappointed by the colour Usual F&B quality but isn't this the colour that used to be called mushroom? December 1, 2014
I loved the way this colour changes under different light. I purchased this colour for my hallway because I had just finished painting my living room in Calamine and wanted a colour that would run with it. When my painter started using it we were amazed by how this colour shimmers under the light and it became a family game deciding what colour the paint was. Under one light it had a pinky hue, another it had a purple hue and the overall colour was a light coffee hue. Whatever the shade is I love it, everyone who has come into my home has made a comment on how nice it is. I've spoilt my decorator as he no longer wants to use anything but Farrow and Ball paint (although he is realises that's not gonna happen). Both my rooms have a lovely finish and I would recommend this paint to everyone. November 11, 2014
unusual colour but looks great Had doubts that the colour may be a bit insipid - but glad I persevered. It is unusual, but blends beautifully with sandstones and creams of the paved garden. Quality is of usual high standard - goes on easily and hopefully will be long lasting June 3, 2013
An interesting colour that it's hard to define A great name for a very interesting colour. We painted this in our north facing sitting room and it worked incredibly well. One wall of the room is stripped back red brick with dark beams and it toned with this well. It is a difficult colour to define but it is very classy, warm and welcoming. As with all F&B paints the quality is great and I found that it went a long way by applying with a brush. November 18, 2012
versatile accent colour We painted furniture in a dark room Dead Salmon and it looks purple brown, like Thai eggplant. Lovely and sophisticated. September 10, 2012
Luscious latte I used Dead Salmon with Pointing trim in a northwest facing office/guest bedroom. Using the recommended F&B red & warm undercoat, this lovely cafe latte color has a softening hint of pink. Cozy and comforting. September 4, 2012
Excellent coverage with usual F & B finish Dead Salmon was better than anticipated!Coverage was great unlike some F & B colours. Prompt delivery, should be for the price! September 4, 2012

The name comes from a painting bill for the library at Kedleston of 1805, though in fact analysis suggests that this colour was far less pink. Red & Warm Tones undercoat.
