Makes my sitting room relaxing and peaceful
I adore F & B paint for the quality and depth of pigmentation. My sitting room is small, west facing and leads into an east facing kitchen. Because my home is small I prefer to decorate in 'toning' shades and use the same carpet throughout (pale ivory). The wall between my kitchen and sitting room is semi-glazed and I have sunlight from the east facing kitchen streaming into my sitting room in the mornings. I used Blue Green in the hall, Teresa Green in both s/r and kitchen with Blue Green on the south kitchen wall (that wall is alcoved with 2 floor to ceiling sliding doors). Those doors were done in Blue Green eggshell, all other woodwork/ceilings done in Pointing. I am delighted with the results but what delights me even more is when visitors tell me how relaxed and comfortable they feel. They are fascinated by the way the paint colour changes according to the light; even on a murky day Teresa Green retains its clarity, it never feels cold and the Blue Green in the hall tones in beautifully (I never close the doors). It's a dark hall and I worried that the colour would be too drab but, in fact, it looks wonderful as does the wall in the kitchen.
I used 2 coats Estate Emulsion everywhere, the previous colour being Pale Powder again in Estate Emulsion. There are a few comments regarding F & B pricing in other reviews. I last decorated over 7 years ago. The paint was still in perfect condition, I had to redecorate due to new heating system. Otherwise I think the Pale Powder would still be here in another 7 years. Personally, I find the paint very reasonably priced given the longevity of the product. As with all quality products the colours have a subtlety one cannot find in the cheaper ranges. It's one of the easiest paints I have ever used but I do miss the oil based eggshell. I cannot recommend F & B products highly enough. They really are first class.

just used this in a sitting room that was previously dark green and really gloomy. it's a transformation. the room feels fresh and light and really uplifting. if you have an ounce of light it will really bring the place to life. delighted. I'd say it's not as muted as it looks on the swatches - it's a perfect odinil :)

Previously reviewed and recommended same product in different colour (Mizzle).

I looked everywhere for a classic green/blue. Other paint seemed to be too dark. This is stunning and everyone who visits comments on it. It lifted my front room from looking dull. Really recommend. I did try Green Blue before this which I found too dark for what I wanted.

Does the job it's meant for.
The colour is as expected no surprises once it's on. No patching or streaking. Any spillage on the walls have simply wiped clean so far. Very pleased with the product.

Lovely light shade
This paint is so easy to use and also there is virtually no smell when it is being used. I will use Farrow and Ball every time in future. I love the richness and depth of the colour. It only needed two coats to cover even the darkest of painted walls.

Slightly too Green
I need to try something with a fraction more blue. I liked the matt finish.
