We bought this colour to paint a bedroom (currently used as a study). Very pleased with the results - light yet soft, very 'live-able' shade. Apparently green is the best colour to inspire creative thoughts so I am hoping I will be much more productive!

Lovely Eau de Nil
This is my second time using F&B paint and I'm really impressed with it. Pale Powder is an absolutely wonderful colour it looks blue/green/grey depending on the time of day, I would describe it as a pale Eau de Nil. I used the F&B primer as it seems to intensify the colour.

Goes great with Grey
We bought a 750ml tin to accent a cupboard wall at the end of a corridor where the walls are white and the floor and cupboard handles are grey (Purbeck stone). This colour works extremely well and adds a great accent that isn't too 'in your face' but adds a bit of freshness - I know that sounds odd compared to white but it really does. Goes fantastically with any shade of grey as a fantastic complimentary contrast. Estate eggshell fantastic and went on to the painted MDF cupboard wall without primer comfortably with 2 coats required.

Another success from F & B. I love the subtle colours and natural finishes obtained with these paints.

Softest Duck Egg
I used this in an east-facing kitchen. The room is now charming.

first time using F&B paint but will definitely be using it again, very happy with the quality
Currently painting wooden furniture (a dresser and two bookcases) and am very happy with the results. Primed with F&B primer/undercoat in light tones followed by two coats of Pale Powder eggshell. Using rollers I have found the coverage to be excellent and the finish is a beautiful pale green with a very slight blue cast depending on the light.

Yet another success !
We revamped our Bathroom , originally we planned to change 3 brown
Storage cupboard doors but decided to paint them. Pale powder is a lovely blue/ green and depending on the changing light deepens or lightens accordingly.
We used undercoat primer for light shades and then 2 coats of top coat . So inspired we carried on to paint the bath and sink panels .The room looks lovely so fresh and up to date.

Lovely but weird!
So, I chose this colour (along with Light Blue) because I wanted a very pale blue-green. It was described as greeny on the website and in customers' reviews so I bought a matchpot. I painted samples on various walls and all of them looked a very pale sky-blue. As I couldn't find another colour I liked, in the end I decided to take a punt and buy this colour. When you paint a whole wall, it turns green!! At one point I was looking at a wall of it and it was green, then looking at the next wall which still only had a matchpot-sized patch and that still looked blue! My decorator said that even if he painted round the 'blue' patch rather than over it, it still turned green #so it wasn't a case of the matchpot and the large pot being different#.
So a very weird but lovely colour.
