Simply the Best We have decorated three extensions to our home using Farrow & Ball paints. Perhaps slightly more expensive than competitors, but, the end product combined with ease of application certainly compensates. Would without the slightest hesitation recommend all Farrow & Ball products to those decorating their premises! August 1, 2014
Modern Emulsion more yellow-toned than Estate Emulsion? I love this colour and have used Estate Emulsion on most walls in my home. However, I used Modern Emulsion in one room, and it looks different from the Estate Emulsion. The Modern Emulsion seems to be more yellow in tone, compared with the greyer Estate Emulsion. It could be a trick of the light, but has anyone else noticed this? June 1, 2014
What a finish I used this on my ceiling rather than a pure white as that would have looked too harsh against the wall colour (Ball Green). I did put up a new ceiling (plastered) but the finish was beautiful and flat and very consistent. Looks absolutely fabulous! March 12, 2014
Lovely colours. Wonderful to apply. Excellent finish We always buy F&B paint. You can't get better quality for period properties. March 9, 2014
Brilliant paint! Brilliant paint! The best we have ever used and it went much further than we expected and gave a really smooth finish. February 1, 2014
Made by Hogworts? Just painted the kitchen walls with off-white . . . I swear this paint is made by Hogworts - nothing is what it seems, I was convinced that this was a mushroom shade of cream. Wrong! its a pale shade of sage green! But I love it, it looks subtle and very grown-up, it's teamed with oak units, white flooring, woodwork and ceiling. Hubby says that the estate emulsion is a joy to use, goes a long way with excellent coverage - well worth the extra cost. All in all not what I expected but a 'serendipitous' outcome. If you want a natural colour with depth and warmth then try Off-white. January 2, 2014
As always - an excellent paint Even though it's seemingly quite expensive - F&B modern emulsion applies and covers so well. Delivery direct from F&B is fast too. This colour 'Off-White' is very versatile - we've used it in a number of rooms in our Victorian house. Along with 'pointing' Estate Egshell on all our woodwork it looks wonderful. August 24, 2013
Good Neutral Shade Several people have said Off White looks a shade of green - I haven't found that - it looks the same colour as fresh putty - a greyish cream. So use a matchpot! I used Off White in a small dark north-facing room. It's a light colour and works well as a foil to stronger colours - I've used Stone White on doors and fireplace (which is very much a green shade) and the two work well together. I've also used it in a very dark porch with Eating Room Red doors and that worked. Works well as a neutral background to show off stronger colours. August 19, 2013
