Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alternative to French Grey for an exterior green We chose Stone White some years ago for the exterior woodwork colour for our Dorset cottage (golden stone and thatched roof). Stone White is actually a pale green, and is a good alternative to French Grey or Lichen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Remarkable colour match after 11 years! This is my favourite all time green. Have used it for over 30 years in different houses. What I didn’t expect was an exact colour match to the decorating I did 11 years ago. as always the F and B colours have amazing variations in different light conditions but also the coverage was superb and brush cleaning a doddle. This archive paint is worth every penny

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful and versatile colour I bought this paint for my kitchen walls. I was looking for something akin to the colour of clotted cream and this ticked the right boxes. On first glance the colour appears to be just white, but when painted it has a glow and richness to it which makes it more cream than white. It looks beautiful in my small cottage kitchen and complements the Green Ground 206 Farrow & Ball paint which I used to paint my kitchen units. My only complaint about the paint was that it did definitely require two coats and in some places needed three - for the cost of the paint I would have expected it to provide better cover. But all in all I am very pleased and the service from Farrow & Ball was brilliant - especially when I telephoned them for advice before deciding on this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stone White The most beautiful colour, imagine a soft sage but having had the inimitable Farrow and Ball magic dust sprinkled in to it. I have painted my living room in Stone White and used White satin paint on woodwork. I couldn't be happier. Worth the extra pennies. Delivery was prompt and the sample tins came in the most ingenious little box. Adorable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I used this is a very small, very dark, north-facing room on the fireplace and doors (with Off White on the walls). It looks great, and the neutral walls bring out the olive green shades in it. Works well with very small amounts of dull orange alongside it (eg a vase). I also tried Stone White in a very bright south facing room but that seemed to bring out the sludgey beige side of the colour rather than the green - not what I was after - Vert De Terre worked better in that setting. So use a matchpot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely in every way This is a very beautiful grey-green with a slight hint of yellow. I used it in a bathroom as a backdrop to framed pieces of Bradbury & Bradbury art wallpaper printed in olive, cream, cranberry, and gold, and, I have to say, the effect is stunning. The depth of the color is remarkable -- it has absolutely transformed this small room. It was a pleasure to apply (I used two coats of Estate Emulsion over a previously painted surface) and clean-up was a breeze. Restoration Hardware bath linens in Olive and Bisque complement this color perfectly. If you're considering this color, I strongly suggest you get a sample pot before buying; the color differs substantially from the digital "swatch" on the F&B website. Highly recommended.
