QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unusual & beautiful blue We're already F&B advocates, our entire house is painted in their colours. When creating our new bathroom we tested 7 different colours, wanting something different and distinctive. Sloe Blue was our eventual choice and we're delighted with the colour and finish. It sits between blue and green, reminding us of the colour of the sea where we live, making it the perfect choice for our bathroom. We've paired with Strong White for the woodwork, and Hague Blue on the bath side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous, rich colour Absolutely beautiful blue (with a smidge of green-grey?). It’s really lovely. We chose the modern emulsion to be a bit more wipeable/hard wearing and pleased we did. There appears to be little difference in finish to the estate emulsion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful rich blueberry color I recently purchased a sample pot of archive color Sloe Blue to try out. It is a lovely rich blueberry color that is not too purple, not too gray, not too green, but just right. The paint went on smoothly like silk and covered well in two coats. I won't be using this color as it didn't match my duvet cover, but it is a beautiful blue nonetheless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, high quality paint We bought the full gloss no.87 for our front door and it was perfect. The paint goes on brilliantly (we used the F&B mid tone primer as an undercoat) and the result is flawless. It is so easy to clean from the brushes due to being water based, yet dried to a really high quality gloss. Highly recommended.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sample pot Have just tried a small amount on the kitchen wall but not sure, as yet whether the paint will be suitable for a kitchen. Really like the colour sloe blue .
