Beautiful colours but not as hard wearing as you may be lead to believe. I think there is no doubt that most will love F&B colour pallet. What has been a disappointment (given the price of the product) is that it is not as hard wearing as F&B would have you believe. We used floor paint for all the woodwork in our house because of our 2 small children but even a slight knock by a child's wooden chair has left a very noticeably scratch and a fruit bowl now needs a mat to protect the paintwork which which wasn't necessary before. I must add that we had professionals paint the house top to bottom, F&B primer was used where necessary but they were less than happy with the application. A minimum or two coats is definitely required for both wall and wood surfaces. 30 October 2014
Very unique colour I painted my front door in pigeon and i've had a lot compliments since. It paints beautifully, very easy to use. I will be using it again for sure. :-) 21 October 2014
Fantastic Paint all round Absolutely thrilled with the results, used Pigeon exterior eggshell for my dressing room cuboard doors with fantastic results. Of couse used F&B emulsion on the walls too. The quality of the paint is outstanding, the colour choices inspiring! I dont use anything else. 12 September 2014
Two coats to perfection - lovely sophisticated grey/green. Took two coats which drank the paint. Well worth the effort. Goes well with strong dark greens/blues/crimson in curtains and grey leather 3 piece suite. This replaced F&B Light Blue which had been on for 15 years! It remained as good as the day it was put on but we needed a change! 30 August 2014
Pigeon Study Beautiful colour that has provided a rich and classy depth to our new study. The 'dark tones undercoat' proved invaluable in order to gain the depth in colour from a recently plastered wall. Very pleased, thank you. 10 August 2014
this is the best you can get Always very happy with this paint. Have recommended it to numerous clients and used it ourselves for our own projects. For me one of the best attributes is its drying time. As soon as you have finished the first coat you can pretty much depend on it being ready for its second coat within about an hour if you are working on affine day with a bit of sunshine. Love it, will always use Farrow & Ball although its costs a bomb when you are doing large jobs as I tend to do most of the time. Pity you cant get it at trade price direct. 10 July 2014
Perfect as usual I would not choose any other brand, the results are always perfect and with no nasty fumes! 27 June 2014
Just what I wanted. A beautiful shade and has changed the whole look of our house for the better. Would totally recommend. I was not prepared for the difference in quality that this paint offered. First class. 11 May 2014
