I have recently painted my hallway in arsenic.
(I live in a 1930's semi detached house with a decent size hall but naturally dark).I was apprehensive about making such a statement,but having just painted all my floorboards in stone blue I knew this colour would compliment them well.To be honest arsenic is not a colour I really liked,but that was just personal preference.I am now so pleased I had the vision to go ahead and brave it! IT LOOKS INCREDIBLE! So many houses are beige as you are welcomed to their hall on first impressions BORING...(in my opinion).Coverage,ease of use,quality and final results are just 100% excellent.

I'm a F&B convert!
I used this colour in a conservatory and it's beautiful! The coverage was superb...and the depth of colour and finish is second to none. I'm now planning a feature wall in the adjoining kitchen in the same colour.
I will now always use F&B paint......it's like painting with silk.....love it!!

You won't be disappointed!
This colour is quite daring for me, but I absolutely love it! Used on one wall in a North facing kitchen, to go behind a black Esse wood fired cooker. Looks ace against the black of the flue.
Decided to just use it on one wall because it's a kitchen. Rest of the room will be in Wimpole White. The web recommended James White so I ordered a sample pot, but I'm concerned it might look a bit mucky in a N facing room so the Wimpole is a safer option.
Online service is excellent and very quick. Shame they don't do 1 litre tins as feel I've got most of a 2.5 litre tin now going to waste if I don't use it somewhere else.

A joy to work with
Spent a few days using an oil-based eggshell for our woodwork- before going on to F&B's external eggshell for our front door. What a difference in quality! This paint was a dream to use and have gone on to switch to F&B's eggshells for the rest of our woodwork.
We chose Arsenic for our door and it is joyous!

Arsenic is such a calming colour
I painted some old bistro chairs in Arsenic to give them a new lease of life after being left outside for many years. It worked, the colour is a mint green and it really revives them. I loved the colour so much im contemplating painting an old leaning mirror in it. I used primer underneath and an exterior wood satin varnish on top. I need two coats to cover the primer but they look lovely now finished.

Exquisite Chalky Green
This is my first experience using these extraordinary paints; Farrow and Ball is sublime! The texture itself is luxurious and the finished product has green with elements of chalky blue as well. I first bought this for my bathroom, much like in the inspiration booklet I have white tiles in my small loo, but I decided to try a bit on my wall in my Southern facing bedroom and I was sold ! It changes with the light, brings a cheery classic elegance, and evokes a very period feel which compliments the Deco elegance of my 1931 co-op. I am Hooked- there's no way matching this would work, attempting to save a bit, the estate emulsion is truly the most beautiful finish I've ever used in my space.
