Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can afford to be a bit bolder with the shades chosen for exterior use We had originally painted the exterior wood and metal work with Vert de Terre, but although a nice colour, we found it far too pale, particularly on the sunniest aspects of the house. The change to Castle Gray achieved what we had originally visualised, it was very easy to apply and gave a great finish. In future we would definitely try the sample pots and test on all elevations, rather than relying on the colour chart, as where the paint is used on the exterior, not just whether you are painting inside or outside will alter the outcome considerably. As a footnote, we have used F&B exterior paints before and always found them to be durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Try this lovely blue-gray Chose this for our dining room which has very wide French windows directly out onto garden so wanted something that complimented the garden view. Most reviews of this shade seemed to suggest it was used on external paintwork eg doors but it is a wonderful colour for interiors. Subtle and warm, sometimes appears vaguely green but I think mainly bluey-gray. It is fresh and bright whilst still remaining calm. Great against wood, or white paintwork and at the back of the bookcase to highlight. Definitely recommend this shade, very happy with it.
