Skylight 4.5 5 18 18
Lovely color for a bedroom I became addicted to Farrow and Ball estate emulsions after painting my husband's home office in London Stone. The result so handsome and stately. I chose Skylight estate emulsion for my grown daughter's old bedroom (covering the hideous turquoise she chose at age 11). Skylight has transformed the space into a warm, relaxing sanctuary. It's definitely blue, but a soft grey-blue, complex and interesting, changing with the light/time of day. I love that about Farrow and Ball paints. I recommend always ordering a couple of test pots first, painting test patches directly on the walls you are considering painting, then observing the colors at various times of the day. Without fail, I choose a different color than I think I will. I use the recommended primer/undercoat which is great for smoothing out my old farmhouse's walls, and I use a brush, not a roller. Easy process, flawless finish. Online order/delivery is fast and easy too. Doubt I'll ever use any other brand of paint! October 30, 2014
Beautiful Colour! Very soothing and calm light blue. Painted our bathroom 5 years ago with Skylight and just repainted it again with the same colour as Its so easy to live with! October 3, 2014
This is the one 3 sample pots as we couldn't decide what colour to paint our hallway and upstairs landing. Skylight is the colour we all agreed was the best. The two other contenders were - Dimpse and Borrowed Light, both good, but Skylight came tops. Lovely light blue. September 19, 2014
Great colour and easy to apply An interesting colour that looks greaton our exterior woodwork. The product is easy to apply and has a great finish, though it does require 3 coats to get looking perfect. September 8, 2014
Too light for what I wanted When I put this outside as an exterior colour, it was far too light for the grey I wanted August 18, 2014
Fabulous! Love this paint colour, looks great on front door. April 26, 2014
Classy result Very pleased with the colour and finish. It is the perfect shade for my otherwise difficult to match kitchen. April 21, 2014
this product looks good enough to eat. Yum. This is the most delicious color and so soothing for my guest bedroom. I used high gloss on the walls and ceiling and 2 walls & ceiling in the attached bathroom. Every time I walk into the room, I smile. My guests are smiling too. April 14, 2014
