Matchstick 4.9 5 18 18
Beautiful color for foyer and hallway. Paint goes on easily with rich results. We will use this company in the future. 29 November 2014
This is an amazing product This is the very first time I have purchased Farrow and Ball paint,and though it was expensive it was worth every penny. Superb paint!!!!! 24 November 2014
Warm effects in a small cottage. We used Matchstick on the walls of the upstairs rooms and the living room in our small stone cottage which doesn't have a lot of natural light. It gives a very warm effect and the colour changes from quite pale yellowy - cream to a more ochre colour depending on the weather and light outside. I had heard that using the casein distemper was difficult to apply but I had no problem using it with a roller over newly applied lime plaster. We used Pointing for the woodwork which is not as stark as a white would be and has a faint creamy appearance. 30 August 2014
Gorgeous. Painted my south facing bedroom in this colour and "wow" what an impact. Lovely colour. 28 May 2014
Great daylight colour. This looks lovely in natural light. It makes for a nice light room when the lights are on too. The paint is a pleasure to use as it has a beautiful consistency and flows well with brush or roller. It also covers well. Two coats are recommended and would probably be enough but I went for a third and I'm very happy with the result. 29 March 2014
Warm bright colour Used Matchstick on kitchen base cupboards in old cottage. Pointing on lime plaster walls & sloping ceiling, granite and wood worktops. Vert de Terre larder cupboard. Stunning. light, but warm. Goes beautifully with stone floor. Used Eggshell on cupboards and matt on wall behind AGA. Does not chip easily, lovely paint and would recommend. 29 December 2013
Lovely warm shade which works well with many colours I used this alongside brinjal in a north-facing room. The two colours complemented each other extremely well and the end result was a lovely cosy looking study. Applied very well and quick drying so easy to achieve the final desired result. 05 November 2013
Stunning! I used this colour in my living room. Looks stunning against the white woodwork and ceiling, as advised. My decorator commented favourably on my colour choice, and he sees lots of houses! 14 October 2013
