So easy to use
Unlike other branded paints, Farrow and Ball's paint glides on the surface easily. It doesn't seem 'gloopy' like other paints and it covers beautifully. I used the paint for outside windows and painting a porch and the finish is fantastic. Even though I painted it myself, it looks like a professional job - no drips! I would highly recommend paying the extra for a cracking finish.

Beautiful colour and finish
This is a beautiful buttery cream and in some lights even a soft gold, with F&B all white woodwork it looks fresh and clean yet with a little warmth so that the entrance hall is still both elegant and inviting.
I bought 20 litres as I had purchased this quantity for two coats of another make in the past, however the decorator says this paint goes a long way, so I have sufficient left for the dining room - which I'm really pleased about.
Farrow and Ball colours are subtle and therefore add colour gently, and the finish is excellent.

Far better than I expected
Struggled to chose a colour for a dark, north facing study/snug. Followed the advice from F and B online for north facing rooms and I am over the moon! This is a fabulous deep cream with a yellow tone -but very warm. Used new white eggshell on all the paintwork and the room looks light and welcoming. Can't wait to finish. Just need another colour for the bookcase .
PS. As usual the finish on the walls is superb and changes subtly with the light. Love it.

Good but recommended undercoat is too dark for Farrow's Cream
This is a lovely custard cream colour that I've used in a north facing bedroom. However the recommended mid tones undercoat is too dark. I've used several coats of top coat to cover the undercoat. The job would have been easier if I had used a white or light tones undercoat.

I'm in love. I have looked for a proper cream for years for my cottage and I have found it
I painted my sitting room and loved it so much, I am now painting my entire cottage in this.

Fantastic colour for north facing room
Our utility room is north facing and the window does not get any direct light so choosing the right colour was a challenge. I scoured the F&B web site hints and tips section to help me select the right colour and the tips were invaluable. This colour is fantastic - it's made the room lovely and light yet warm. Everyone who sees it agrees it looks great. We have used F&B throughout our house renovations - the colours are beautiful, the paint is excellent quality and so easy to apply. My fella is now a F&B convert!
