Churlish Green

No. 251  

Churlish Green 4.7 5 12 12
Churlish Green was chosen to try and liven up dark brown kitchen cupboards The quality of F&B paints for their colour tones, coverage and finish, is well known. I have bought a large amount over the years and never disappointed. I chose Churlish Green to paint round the dark brown modern kitchen cupboards inherited in new house, in attempt to liven up the room and it has certainly done this, the colours go together so well, have now also painted an old 30's cane chair and that's also perfect/ Brush now poised wondering what else I can paint.... Churlish Green is a subtle lime green, very classy! 28 August 2014
Exactly what I was looking for I chose Churlish Green exterior masonry paint for the stonework on my Victorian London brick terrace. I spent many months stripping 120 years of paint from the stone and discovered that for the majority of its history it was shades of pale yellow and beige. I did a bit of research and found out that the fashion for white painted stone is a recent one, and in the Victorian era everyone picked a colour they liked. I wanted to reflect the fact that the stone was predominantly painted shades of yellow, but I'm not a fan of pale yellow so chose this colour instead. I think it echoes the history of the house, but is also a modern shade that let's me put my own stamp on it after all that hard work! I'm sure my neighbours would prefer me to paint it white, but they'd be wrong. Wait until they see what colour I'm painting the door ;) 25 June 2014
Great colour and smooth texture Easy to apply. Good coverage. I have heard it chips easily compared to some cheaper brands but other that I would recommend this lovely olive green paint. 02 April 2014
Great colour, but… Couleur superbe, mais... Attention avec l'Impression Teintes Foncées qui est recommandée sur le site, à mon avis par erreur. J'utilise des peintures Farrow & Ball depuis 13 années déjà… et j'en suis très satisfait. J'ai voulu suivre la recommandation du site internet et j'ai commandé l'Impression Teintes Foncées, tout en ayant un doute car Churlish Green est une teinte lumineuse… et j'aurais dû me fier à mon intuition. Le résultat est désastreux, je dois passer une 3 ème couche de Churlish Green pour espérer un résultat correct. (alors qu'une partie sur une impression blanche est parfaite avec 2 passages…) Beware of the Dark Tones Undercoat which is recommended, I think it's really a bad thing to do. I have the practice of Farrow & Ball paintings for 13 years, I was very satisfied, ever. I wanted to follow the recommendation I found on website, I ordered the Dark Tones Undercoat, while having a doubt because Churlish Green is a bright colour… and I should have trusted my intuition ! The result is disaster, I have to apply a 3rd layer of Churlish Green to expect a correct result. (one little part is perfect with 2 layers on a white undercoat !) 14 November 2013
Simply Stunning! WOW what a colour! Used it in the hall and stairs and looks great. Really cheery and everyone comments on it. I thought it was a bit vivid but it looks brilliant. 24 September 2013
Great colour for bright room I used this in a very bright west facing room that I needed to keep fairly light as it provides light into an adjacent darker room. After using a matchpot I had doubts that it might be (a) too unsubtle a colour for an old house or (b) too dark, but decided to go ahead anyway. It's not as pale as I expected - definitely a mid-tone - but it's a lovely soft colour, looks great, and doesn't darken the room much at all. The colour is a velvety yellow-olive that changes from a bright but subtle shade in sunlight to a soft mid khaki green at night. I've used it with All White on woodwork, which keeps the colour fresh looking. It looks great with natural tones against it (wood, sisal etc) and I also have a small table painted Eating Room Red that just zings to life against Churlish Green. 19 August 2013
Superb choice! Such a lovely colour. Decided to go for a lovely green in the bedroom and the kitchen of our new house, but didn't want anything with too much blue in there to make it cool looking in winter. This is just perfect. In bright sunlight it has a yellow warmth, and in the evening it tunes down to a mellow glade like green which is relaxing and yet pretty. As always Farrow and Ball paints are good quality - took two coats in most places, only having to do a bit of touching up around areas where previous owners had slipped when staining the beams of the house. I really recommend this paint. 08 July 2013
The actual colour is more yellow than the chart sample, so worth trying a sample pot. The actual colour is more yellow than the chart sample, so worth trying a sample pot. It is an amazing statement colour, which we used on our summer house window frames, contrasting brilliantly against Studio Green. 03 July 2013

This yellow-green colour has been used decoratively for centuries, both on its own and as a ground beneath patterned wallpapers. Good contrast to Tanners Brown. Dark Tones Undercoat.
