A perfect comlement with F&B Skimming Stone
Very good finish . We used in a Kitchen Diner conversion .
White ceiling, top part of wall 'Strong White' , lower part of wall 'Skimming stone' - divided by a daido rail. A stunning combination with the 'mussel' colour of the kitchen cupboards.

Enjoy painting again.
Moved home and decided to re-paint over a period of six weeks. Decide to go expensive and what a luxury using Farrow and Ball paint. Easy to use, great coverage and great finish. Emulsions only needed two coats.

A beautiful grey
In true F&B style Strong White is actually a grey. It's a very elegant and very pale grey which has a clear and crisp finish. We painted a large loft style room with exposed beams in Strong White and Skimming Stone for some of the woodwork.
My only regret is, if doing it again, I would have painted the beams in the Strong White as well. As it would have simplified the scheme and the painting. Really happy with it, on cloudy days it's a calm grey and on sunny days it's a velvet white.

Strong White in masonry
Used this on exposed indoor brick work and am pleased with colour although would say it is very much a pale grey.

Lovely paint to use with great finish
This paint has a great old-fashioned colour; the dead flat white is lovely and very easy to paint. If the room is warm and dry you may need to add 15% water to get a smooth finish as this paint dries fast. I turned radiators off and opened windows on a damp day and achieved a brilliant smooth finish. The paint covers well but a good undercoat would be recommended.

a great experience
Despite the logistic problems I met to obtain the product IÂ´am very happy with the result. The dark brown wooden ceiling of the living our French cottage has been changed into a light and bright space with this Â´contemporaryÂ´ colour. It remained the desired atmosphere of the campagne and the product respects the original old oak structure of the house. ItÂ´s interesting how this white has different shades from white to a glimpse of grey depending on the daylight.
It is remarkble just one layer of primer and one layer of Strong White estate eggshell was enough for a great result.

I was wary about paying so much (let's face it, it isn't cheap paint) but having received and used it I have no reservations about ordering F&B paint again. It is beautiful in colour, texture and finish, and was a joy to apply. It is completely matt, and the depth and quality of pigment is far superior to anything I have used before. It changes subtly in different lights and every variation is equally lovely. I love my living room in its new coat.

I bought this product to patch up a floor I had painted previously but unfortunately this finish was much shinier than the original and now looks patchy. I bought exactly the same product as I had been so pleased with the original finish. I don't know what to do now as I can't afford to do the whole floor again.
