Informed throughout about delivery etc
Product always very good , expensive but probably worth the price.
I prefer to buy online rather than at my local DIY store.

Lovely shade of white
I love Farrow and Ball paints and use them by choice - coverage is usually much better than other brands .
Having said that, on this occasion I used more paint than I anticipated despite using the calculator on the F & B web pages? Possibly because I was covering a darker shade and going over Silk finish with Matte?
Still recommend though

Pleasure to use
Not a fan of painting but the quality of this paint makes the job a pleasure.
Looking forward to finishing the paintwork so I can get started on my floorboards which I plan to coat in Tanners Brown

Cannot fault it
I am using Wimbourne White eggshell on the woodwork in my Victorian property, as an alternative to white. For a start the colour is superb - a very creamy buttermilk. The finish has just a slight sheen which is more complimentary to the age of the house than gloss. I have only used bright white oil-based gloss in the past and compared to that this paint is a DREAM to apply. It goes on like silk, no drips and brushes need only water to clean them.
I used two coats of Farrow and Ball primer on stripped and sanded wood, and the recommended two coats of Wimbourne White covered perfectly. I would strongly recommend using the best quality brush you can afford, as it really makes the difference.
I short I am delighted. Yes its not cheap but so far I'm convinced its worth the extra money for colour and ease of use

Perfect Wimborne white
Winbourne White manages to be a "pure" white without being a "brilliant" white in that there's no evidence of that cold blue hue one can get with really WHITE whites. I've used it throughout my entire apartment and it looks great.
It was extremely easy to work with, both to apply and dry. Given the area I was painting F&B's excellent website quantity calculator estimated I would need 17lts. Even with three coats applied the last 5lt can remained unopened and the shop where I purchased it was happy to refund me on return.

Great for covering old distemper ceilings and limewashed walls
Our French house is 400 years old in parts and walls are porous with a high degree of humidity in places. The casein distemper product has been great to use and has given a beautiful finish and can be touched up as and when. It is not hardwearing, but certainly a great product for this old property.

Soft white finish, good coverage.
Used on the ceilings, a more gentle soft white than conventional white emulsion, chalk finish which compliments FB 'Off White' which was used on the walls and has a hint of soft green which changes with the light levels, darker at night and lighter during the day. Very pleased with the results, expensive paint but you do get top quality finish.

A really great paint
Due to time on my hands that I was not expecting, I have decorated 80% of my home with F&B paint.
I have used Wimborne White on all my ceilings. It gives a really good cover as in one room I only had to do one coat. It goes on looking like a slightly grey colour when dries white. Which really help to know where you have got to.
Used a natural bristle brush - slower but a much better finish.
I ordered online the week before Christmas on a Wednesday evening and the delivery van arrived on Friday morning as I was doing the School run so excellent delivery time.
Really happy with the F&B paint and the F&B service - spot on.
