Great colour, finish a bit uneven in places
I love the colour, it looks really smart and is very striking. That said, I had to do 3-4 coats to get an even finish and to get the required depth of colour, and the end result isn't as smooth as I would have liked. Thankfully I was only painting a small space so it isn't too much of a problem, but in bigger room this might be more tricky to hide.

We used this on our old cottage on the outside woodwork, to give it a contemporary twist. It's a truly stunning colour, rich and almost heraldry in tone. We teamed it with Ammonite and then planted lots of acid greens, lilacs, soft pinks and purple plants all round the front and the result is simply spectacular.

En admiration devant cette couleur!
J'avais achetÃ© Pelt en magasin et pris la sous couche pour couleur foncÃ©e sur les conseils de la vendeuse. J'ai mariÃ© Pelt Ã Middleton Pink et le rÃ©sultat est splendide. J'avais lu des avis mitigÃ©s sur le Pelt mais avec la sous couche adaptÃ©e je n'ai eu aucun problÃ¨me pour couvrir un mur dÃ©jÃ peint. Le violet est trÃ¨s foncÃ©, trÃ¨s profond. Avec un cadre noir et un miroir argentÃ©e, mes toilettes sont la plus belle piÃ¨ce de ma maison !

Beautiful depth of colour
Pelt has to be my new favourite F&B shade stunning depth of colour that has completely transformed my bathroom.
I did find this shade tricky to apply , avoiding roller track lines was very difficult and it did require four coats . However it was worth the stress and I'm very happy with the overall results .

This is a very dark colour. I painted it on to a wooden Ikea chair and it came out beautifully, a bit more purple than an aubergine, and almost as dark. It goes well with the other colours I've used. I wouldn't use this on a wall, but that's just me, because my house is small.

Beautiful deep purple
Just what I wanted for my cabinet upcycling project! After much debate I decided to go for a bold and chose pelt. I'm very pleased with the final result and colour. It's true to the swatch and adds a hint of colour and luxury to the room. It's rich and bold. The paint itself needs 3-4 coats but got there in the end. The wall colour in the picture is Lamp Room Grey and the skirting/windows are All White.

Lovely colour, very matt finish
I chose Pelt for a front door on a victorian rental property, the colour is fantastic, a rich dark red/brown and the paint went on well. The finish is very matt and I think in retrospect I should have chosen a gloss finish, so I will keep you posted on another front door I am doing in black blue in full gloss. For a front door which will be used all the time I want a finish that will not mark too much so I will have to see how the matt paint lasts.

STUNNING. Flawless finish. Couldn't be happier!
My painter thought I was crazy...about the color and the cost of the paint. Not crazy. Used Pelt in the Estate Emulsion. Amazing finish! So matte. So rich. Painted an accent wall in the dining room - painted the door and all trim on the wall hoping that both would disappear. It was paint magic. The wall is so fabulous. My painter said that it was easy to use - we used the recommended undercoat on the wall and all the trim. I will buy more F&B paint for sure.
