Rated 4 out of 5 by from Modern or Estate Emulsion, think carefully! I painted my hall using Modern Emulsion as suggested by F & B. Unfortunately in a confined space like a hall with mainly artificial lighting the sheen coming off the walls was very pronounced and unattractive. I am reliably told by F & B that the sheen shows up more with darker colours. I wish i had known this before I started. Anyway, couldn't live with it so repainted the whole hall again using the Estate Emulsion which has a lovely depth of colour and no noticeable sheen. Modern Emulsion, in my opinion, does look excellent in bigger spaces and with down lighters where the walls are not so illuminated, such as a bathroom or kitchen, just not for me a hall. You live and you learn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely rich deep red Used it on two walls in my lounge with Wimborne White contrasting on another two walls, and plain white ceiling, with bare stripped wood skirting boards. I painted a radiator in Wimborne White which is situated on one of the walls where the red is so it looks great as a contrast too. It has also made a lovely canvas for my pictures which are framed in antique gold. It's a lovely rich warming red but not too bright and goes great with the Wimborne white as recommended by Farrow and Ball's colour combining suggestions. I considered Eating Room Red as I had used that before in a previous house and liked it a lot but I do prefer the Incarnadine and so glad I choose it instead. My lounge looks classy and so warm and snug!
