Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous rich colour I was worried this might have been a bit too 'in your face' dominant but, true to F&B form, it is a 'subtle' multi-faceted colour that changes in different lights and makes a real statement without being oppressive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm and welcoming, Small west facing room... I found this little cold room in the back West end of the house. F&B's colour advice stated that pinks would work well in West, so I decided to see how far this advice would stretch. Like all of the other paints I have used, Radicchio was a pleasure to work with. Excellent flow and beautiful matte finish. It applies thicker than some of the other paints I have used. Needed two coats. The colour is another strange blend of colours, which is hard to photograph well. Wet Radicchio seems a bit bland, but once dry it deepens into a nice claret colour, while still retaining an almost pale blue purple hue. For a small room it works extremely well. It warms it up completely without shrinking the room or becoming too dark or 'hot'. I can't wait for a lovely reading session there next summer in the golden evening light... Eventually I finished the room by painting the small strip between the cast iron fireplace and white wooden surround Off-Black. It is lovely matte and unassuming. With it's blue hue it is a perfect colour to help blend the fireplace and it's frame into the wall.
