Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely rich colour I used Dutch Orange in a relatively small bedroom. I was initially nervous that it might overpower the room, but there’s a depth to the colour which makes it far less agressive than I had feared. I used three coats and no primer, the recorded primer being close to the cream already in the room. It goes on incredibly easily and two coats would probably be enough if you’re careful to avoid streaks. The colour is beautiful, bright and fresh in the sunlight and warm and comforting in candle or lamplight. I can’t recommend it enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Beautiful color. Used on the north side. Gives a beautiful warm light, despite the somewhat chilly light from the north. Used on the north side. Gives a beautiful warm light, despite the somewhat chilly light from the north. The strength of Farrow and Ball is that all their paint plays with light. No other brand has such a deep full color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going Dutch Arrived super fast and the sample tim was generous. You will have to do at least 5-6 coats to even out the colour as it’s a very strong block colour, but you won’t be disappointed with the results. I paired the colour with dulux fine cream which I had over from earlier decorating project and as I already had blue/ teal furniture I felt it was an excellent match to give a bright modern feel with dark wood shelving to contrast and a mocha carpet. (This was a full room renovation project). One person has taken the sample tin to purchase herself as she loves the colour ans two others of my contacts are in the process of purchasing after seeing my results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It grew on me I bought the sample pot for this paint a year ago and when I lifted the lid recoiled at how bright it was. 10 other sample pots later, we put it on the wall and were immediately smitten. It's a beautiful warm orange, which seems to change to a lovely tan colour in the evening and a almost egg yolk orange in the morning. We love it. It did take about 4 coats but definitely worth it.
