Warming and bright in a period cottage
Chosen in a distemper finish to enhance the warmth and brightness of a 400 year old stone living room. This colour created a very welcoming golden hue and worked very well with traditional oak beams and brass colours/fittings. The distemper finish is a little tiring when applying to a large room with a brush (necessary to cover uneven stones) however coverage is good.

This is a lovely off-white shade.
I brought House White to use for painting our daughters doll's house.I also used the following sample pots-
I always use Farrow and Ball's little sample pot's for painting small project's and I would defiantly recommend.You can't go wrong when putting the colours together they always seem to blend nicely with each other.

Easy to use and goes a long way
Cheaper products don't cover so well or go so far.

Best paint I've ever used
This is the second batch of this paint I've purchased and have been delighted with the results on both occasions. Application is easy and the finish is excellent. Will always use Farrow & Ball paint from now onwards.

Good for a white with a touch of light yellow
This was slightly more citrussy than I had imagined but still a lovely colour.

We used this colour for the surrounds on our front door and for the window ledges on the front of the house, to try and match some of the sand coloured brick work as much as possible.
When it is a sunny day and the front of the house is facing the light, it looks a very nice off white with a hint of yellow.
However, on a dull day or when the light has passed over the house I donât think the colour is one of F & B's best. Of course it is a matter of personal opinion, but I think the colour looks a bit dated - a bit too much of a dirty yellow and a bit like the dreaded Magnolia! - and I wish we had perhaps gone for Lime White or Off White instead.
All in all I would ensure if using this colour you buy a sample pot and try it out in all light conditions, as there is quite a difference between the colour in good strong light and low light.
A positive though was that the finish is great, so I would say if you are just looking to paint a small area of masonry, you will be fine with Estate Eggshell, which means you donât have to buy a 5l tin of masonry paint!

This is a lovely paint with a superb finish - we have a period property and I love the yellowed finish. We used casein distemper to allow the lime plaster walls to breathe. Hopefully it will wear well too. Fantastic company to deal with too - nothing too much trouble.

Usual F & B quality
Beautiful paint to use and consistent finish. A pleasure to work with and from previous use of this paint we know it is colour fast and wears well. Amazed how quickly the order was despatched and delivered. Thank you.l
