A sandy neutral
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bea68 from Like it I’m a huge fan of F&B paint and have been using them for the last 20 years. So I absolutely know that the colours represented in the photos on line don’t always represent the real deal. This is the case for “sand” too. In the promotional photograph it looks more beige / pink but in reality it is more warm yellow with a hint of green and leaning into a gold top jersey double cream. Strangely my camera phone doesn’t pick up the pigments as particularly yellow but more beige as well. And of course the colours’ undertones change with the light too. In the evening it is more grey / green (and reminds me a bit of the colour “matchstick”). Regardless, I’m enjoying this new F&B colour and so pleased with my choice. The paint, as always, went on brilliantly (both emulsion and eggshell) with no splatters and once dry has a beautiful, intensely pigmented, mat finish.

I went through numerous sample cans to get here, and I am thrilled at the outcome. It is truly the perfect color for a dining room surrounded by dk wood floors, a cream formal kitchen. The windows of this room faces a yard with a lot of green....
