I have just finished painting my living room a combination of Satin Slipper and an accent fireplace of Smoked Trout .. it is perfect. I used the Estate Emulsion and the finish is just lovely. Even though the F & B paint may appear to be more costly than over-the-counter paints, I used less because the paint went on smoothly and covered so well. I love this combination and am extremely delighted with the results. Purchasing sample pots was also convenient and shipping was super-fast. THANK YOU Farrow and Ball for helping me create a beautiful living-room.

Changed my mind between order & it's receipt
although I had used a sample pot & concluded I had the correct colour, between ordering & receiving the paint I had changed my mind. Eventually settled on stiffkey blue. Did not consider blues @ all until much later - 27 sample tins. Assume it is now too late to return the unopened tin??

Just Flows off the brush to give a flawless finish
Went on like a dream, and has turned an old, tired piece of wood into a quirky, fun and quality looking piece of furniture. We couldn't have done it without you!

Warm in a north facing bathroom
About five years ago we used smoked trout on the bathroom walls above tongue and groove panelling painted cream - we are about to change the bathroom around but will stick with the colour scheme as we love it so much. Our house is 1930s and quite cottagey in style.
Meanwhile we are in the process of painting the (also north facing) bedroom Joas White and that is looking great too.

Super cover true color
This product goes on well, giving a lovely finish, second purchase to warm up a neutral conservatory, first purchase being borrowed light which was super in the study and bedroom.

Beautiful and Rich
I've just painted my beamy living room walls in Smoked Trout and it's made the wood really sing and stand out, without the beams looking orange in comparison like other 'clay-coloured' paints can do. I recommend the mid-tones undercoat as F&B suggest, and then two coats of estate emulsion. Gorgeous depth of colour, without being too dark, and has made my living room really cosy; looks wonderful with the dusk sunlight on it! I am not sure where the previous reviewer got 'Cadbury' from - it is neither brown or purple. In my house it looks like a deep pinkish clay - very pretty with crisp white linen curtains.
