London Stone

No. 6  

London Stone 4.9 5 12 12
Amazing I used the Estate Emulsion in our lounge and Modern Emulsion for the hallway, staircase and landing. Both were amazing to use and although it took three coats to cover the yellowy colour that was on the walls, it has been well worth the effort. I used a tester first as it was such a change and the colour was exactly as expected. The woodwork on the mantlepiece and the staircase was done in Joa's White and they team together really well - thank you F & B colour advisers for your suggestion! I did one coat of the primer plus two of the Estate Eggshell The windowsills were finished with All White full gloss which gave a fantastic quality gloss that isn't too shiny; just excellent quality that shows the woodgrain texture (it is the thickest paint I have ever used).

Lovely to work with and a satisfactory result, as always. We have often used Farrow and Ball paints in our house and have always been very pleased with the results. They are easy to apply and the colour range is excellent. September 23, 2014
Wonderful colour .... Excellent as ever ... We have used this with mouses back and achieved a stunning period look . Very pleased but had to order this colour in eggshell which rather spoilt the experience as it was delivered to the wrong address and took several emails and telephone calls before it was redelivered.

A good colour. It does take about 3 coats to achieve the correct depth. I haven't used an undercoat but its still ok, especially on wood. I will use this on other furniture and walls. June 3, 2014
Excellent feature wall colour Used this on a bedroom feature wall (modern emulsion) with Oxford Stone elsewhere. The combination is excellent. Oxford Stone by itself would have been a little too bland for my tastes: the addition of London increases interest without being too shouty. June 2, 2014
Lovely warm colour Read other reviews before purchasing and all sounded good, can honestly say it has lived up to our expectations and is good match for the paint chart which isn't always the case. Looked for warmth and both Oxford Stone and London Stone have produced an overall warm feeling in both hall and livingroom. April 15, 2014
Lovely colour, professional finish. Having used lots of eggshell in the last few years I thought I would try gloss for a change. It seems to be a little more hard wearing for outdoor use and isn't too shiny. It still looks like a classic farrow and ball finish. February 5, 2014
Elegant and stately Used this as a feature wall colour in our hall, what a transformation. Combined this with archive. It has given our hall and stairs a stately elegance... October 26, 2013
