Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle and calm for a bedroom After a month of testing out just about every green or near green on the Farrow and Ball paint chart for my bedroom walls (facing south east) to replace the Wet Sand I had loved for over 20 years, I finally settled on Ball Green. It wasn't too dark (rejected colour: Bancha), it wasn't too wishy washy (rejected colour: Mizzle), it wasn't too green (rejected colour: Yeabridge Green), it wasn't too neutral (Old White). The final two in the running were French Grey and Ball Green, and it was a close run thing, but in the end the soft slight silvery-ness of Ball Green won the day. It is gentle, calm and subtle. I paired it with James White on the ceiling and on the window-wall, and couldn't be happier with the combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A warmer greyish green for dark spaces Our mid-terrace house from 1928 was refurbished in 1969, using lots of teak detailing, such as the stairs and all the doors. In the dark and narrow north-facing hall, we wanted a greyish green tone that would go well with our old maps, all the teak and our Travertine floor. We loved 'Lichen' in the shop, but it looked grey and dull in our dark hall. We wanted a colour that looked greyish-green and not grey in a dark space, and Ball Green Modern Emulsion turned out to be the answer to our problem. To really bring out the green in the wall paint, we used 'Olive' (Estate Eggshell) on the skirting boards and the door frames. Note that Ball Green looks completely different and much warmer in artificial evening light than in daylight.
