perfect result dead salmon inside front door and side wall and dimity walls
I have used Fand B for years, as a contractor this time I used, ground pink, dimity, and dead salmon in various parts of a house with fantastic results. I also used modern emulsion for the first time on a clients house as I am a matt man. The results was great with 7% sheen. Will definately use that again with confidence.

Hot chocolate with wipped cream
At first we used Dead Salmon as a feature colour on our mantelpiece wall in our north west facing living room. All other walls are painted Joa's White. The combination is beautiful, the Dead Salmon adds warmth and makes a statement without being too bold.
We liked this unusual colour so much, that we then used Dead Salmon in a rather dark small study, where it looks more brownish and less pink but is even more stunning. We combined it with Pointing, the contrast is modern but very warm.
As said in other reviews: The color is very hard to describe. We think it is the color of hot chocolate with wipped cream. But however you want to describe it: it is just stunning.

A bit disappointed by the colour
Usual F&B quality but isn't this the colour that used to be called mushroom?

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.

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

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.

versatile accent colour
We painted furniture in a dark room Dead Salmon and it looks purple brown, like Thai eggplant. Lovely and sophisticated.

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.
