Skimming Stone 4.7 5 33 33
Fabulous grey/stone coloured neutral I love this colour. I have just installed a shower room and I was looking for a creamy grey off white that would go well with the traditional cabinets (in lamp room grey). This colour is lovely, warm but still light and just what I was looking for to match both the cabinet and tiles. Very easy to apply, I used the modern emulsion but it still looks very 'chalky' which is what I was after. Really happy , thank you!! July 11, 2014
This paint is of very high quality with excellent finish. This is a first class paint which is easy to use. Very smooth on application, producing a clean, high quality finish. I was delighted with it and consider it to be well worth the money spent. June 4, 2014
Great complimentary colour Painted kitchen, with feature wall of 'Pelt', which the subtle tones of skimming stone compliment fantastically. May 14, 2014
Fantastic in bedrooms Just had 2 bedrooms painted in this - one North, one South - and it looks beautiful in both. Stylish, modern, calm yet warm. Really, really beautiful. May 11, 2014
Excellent for covering older painted wood. We used skimming stone estate eggshell on our kitchen doors and frames. The colour was a perfect match for the units and wallboards. Easy to use and an excellent finish. April 29, 2014
Old westerly rooms given warmth We live in a period property with westerly facing northern light. Skimming Stone provided a good neutral base with much needed warmth. April 16, 2014
Lovely off-white floor paint We bought Skimming Stone floor paint for a wooden floor made up of old and new floor boards and it has covered both beautifully. Gorgeous soft colour that goes really well with Charleston Gray which we've used on the skirting and doors. Delighted with the results. April 1, 2014
Interesting colour Read all reviews on this site as well as googling pictures of rooms done in Skimming Stone and didn't know how this paint would come out as seems to appear as a vastly different colour depending on the room/ light. Small area as a tester looked stony but having finished, in our north facing lounge, it's a definite grey . I love it, we painted fireplace dove tale as a subtle contrast and room looks chic, modern and it's fresh as well as feeling warm, the slight brown/lilac undertone makes it much more interesting than just a grey. The Farrow and Ball website advises against these colours in a north- facing room so the room was originally Matchstick but that just looked muddy yellow so I'm glad we took the plunge and re painted. Really pleased,. March 29, 2014
