Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect chartreuse yellow I’ve been looking for the perfect yellow for years and this is it! Perfect for ‘cold’ British light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from California Collection: Citrona CC3 The colour was spot on for my feature wall , the other walls were matched with the House White, one of the things i appreciate with F&B is that they have the matching white which takes the guess work out of trying to find the correct white. I Didn't want a bright yellow this was a darkish yellow I added some glitter to make it sparkle, when the light hits it, it looks beautiful . The painter and decorator was very impressed with the quality and coverage it made his job more enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, gorgeous cabinets There were many beautiful yellows to choose from but the Citrona shade really struck me as something modern, different and that sound pair well with stainless appliances in our garage apartment kitchen. The modern eggshell is quite flat, yet will be nice a durable for cabinets. Don’t forget to let your projects cure! I love farrow and ball and this was the first time I used Modern Eggshell. Very pleased. And yes, the hue/ shade just change slightly as the light of day changes. I find this interesting and beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb I've been looking for this colour for a long time to complement a painting. It's a green toned lemon with a touch of taupe? Anyway, like a pale chartreuse that changes depending on the light and I love it. I got the estate emulsion that disguises the dodgy wall textures brilliantly. Very easy to use and goes such a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely bright colour We chose this colour to bring a bit of brightness into the nursery. It goes very well with blackened which we used on the rest of the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very satisfying paint to use and adore this colour I bought the modern eggshell citrona for upcycling some bedside units. I love f&b paint, it never disappoints, I've previously repainted our kitchen cupboards and found the application so easy that I didn't hesitate to buy again. This colour is so satisfying, it's warmer than I originally thought it would be, very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour! I bought this ‘blind’ after seeing the Californian Edit online. I thought it looked like a nice colour so did something I would never normally do and just ordered it! I used it yesterday and it looks amazing. I’ve never used Farrow & Ball paint before and was impressed by the quality of the paint. It went on so easily. Am now deciding what colour to paint the hallway!
