Great paint. Easy to apply on two doors in wood panelled lounge. Wood panels painted in Lamproom Grey and Great White. Overhead beams in Cinder Rose.. Believe it or not looks really good. Room brightened up and all colours going together well. Glad to give you the thumbs up. Good product. Thanks

A beautiful shade
I have put this on one side of my hallway and tunsgate green on the darker wall, however I just love the finish and shade of this paint I intend in the very near future to paint the whole of mÅ· hallway with green ground. It does change colour in sunlight but on a evening in lamp light it comes into its own just a warm welcoming green.

Lovely fresh Colour
Due to time on my hands that I was not expecting, I have decorated 80% of my home with F&B paint.
I have used Ground Green colour in my Hall and Office. The hall has no natural light coming into it so I always look to use a light bright colour so it doesn't look dark and this colour has ready brighten it up.
I did start to use a roller for the first coat but it was patchy but I think that had a bit to do with what I was going over. I moved onto to using a natural bristle brush - slower but a much better finish.
I ordered online the week before Christmas on a Wednesday evening and the delivery van arrived on Friday morning as I was doing the School run so excellent delivery time.
Really happy with the F&B paint and the F&B service - spot on.

Great shade of green
I had been looking for the perfect shade of green that wasn't too dark or too light for a few months before finding green ground. The colour is great, I've used it in my downstairs cloakroom that gets no natural light and the colour is quite bright and calming. It also works well as a feature wall against white, in our study, which is a very bright room. Everyone who comes to the house has asked what the colour is with friends even going out and buying the same shade!
I would say that the colour shown online and on the colour card is fairly accurate to how it looks on the wall, but it definitely does change, as you'd expect, depending on the lightness of the room.

The perfect pastel green
I love Green Ground. I would describe it as a very soft apple green. I just used it on my bathroom walls and against the new white sanitary ware and cream tiles, it looks fantastic. It's very hardwearing and a little goes a long way. Yes it's more expensive than regular bathroom and kitchen paint, but it is superior in quality.

significant day to evening change
For those who use F&B you will already appreciate that the colour on screen and tester card is no real indicator of the paint on the wall, and tester pots must be used.
Having painted a x1 SQ foot area I thought this was enough to get a good idea of the colour and so painted a 15x13ft interior, west facing wall, with a lot of immediate light.
The colour is a very pastel green, none of the yellow hint seen on screen above. During the day it has a shade of grey that keeps the colour back and gives a subtle and peaceful characteristic. In the evening, with lamp light, the grey disappears and the colour seems to increase in hue - the pastel green becomes much brighter and more alive.
For my needs this day to night change is the wrong way around, it is calm and subtle during the day and lively in the evening, and the amount it comes alive is not obvious from such a small test area so if you are thinking of using this colour really test it first - it is very lively.

Used F&B Green Ground and Cooking Apple Green in my entrance hall. Love the colours so much that when we needed to redecorate we used it again. The paint goes on well and is very easy to use.
Totally recomend F&B paints
