Slipper Satin

No. 2004  

Slipper Satin 4.6 5 37 37
Elegant and versatile neutral A beautiful and elegant neutral off white which evokes the colour of some 1920's silk satin fabrics. I have used it on both walls and woodwork in a west facing bedroom. I have combined it with both Pointing and Elephant Breath and it has worked very well in both cases. The effect is very calming and inspite it has a greyness in it, this colour still manages to achieve a warm and bright effect. Will definitely reccomend! November 1, 2014
Three out of four tins of paint were OK We uses Farrow & Ball paints a lot as we like the finish which is why the final product rating is good. However this has been given purely as three of the four tins of paint were good. The faulty tin(in our opinion) which was opened and used after two 5 litre tins had been previously used on the walls crackled and split in places when drying as a second coat over the top of the previous F&B paint. I must add that the decorating was carried out by a professional decorator who we use a lot and has previously painted F&B paints in a number of our houses over the years with no issues. The experience has made my wife and I consider looking at other paints in the future. October 28, 2014
Gorgeous! I originally bought this colour to go on the ceiling and woodwork of a dressing room in which the new cupboard doors are painted Slipper Satin. Since then I have used it everywhere! It goes with almost every single colour I put it with. It is a grey white but very warm nonetheless. I love it. October 9, 2014
I love this paint. I love this paint. It has rescued my tired old bannisters. in the hallway of my dark victorian house. A lovely paint to use. September 17, 2014
Fantastic colour!! I am really delighted with the colour of this paint! I was unsure from the sample pot whether this colour would make my south-facing kitchen-diner look a bit drab, but I was wrong. This cream/grey is beautiful - fresh and clean, but elegant & calming. It looks lovely in our period home but also has a contemporary feel, so would work well anywhere. I could quite happily paint every room of my house in this colour. I've used Slipper Satin on walls with All White on ceiling & cornice. Still undecided on All White or Skimming Stone for woodwork. Paint goes on beautifully - it is a pain having to apply by brush though. July 22, 2014
The price reflects the quality I have used this produce many times and never fail to be satisfied with the coverage, ease of application and final result. I love the colours and if you decorate infrequently it is worth paying the extra to achieve results you are happy with. May 18, 2014
Great neutral colour Very pleased with the results. This is a good choice if you want to avoid bright white but still have that fresh & clean look. We now use this all over the house which makes life easier when patching up. Good quality & coverage March 23, 2014
My favourite colour I have used this colour in a number of rooms in my house. I like that it is a warm neutral with out being boring. It seems to go well with my curtains and accessories in different rooms, and as a neutral alongside accent walls. I have used both the estate emulsion and the modern emulsion in high use areas and both have a nice finish. My decorator commented how lovely it was to use. We have old lath and plaster walls in our house and the paint seems to suit. March 18, 2014
