Citron

No.74

A warm lemon yellow

Citron, as the name suggests, is a warm Mediterranean yellow which has a bright intensity in small spaces and is fantastically welcoming in halls. It is softer in well lit rooms but is perhaps a little too stimulating for the bedroom. Try contrasting with House White on ceilings and woodwork. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: House White

Citron is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely strong yellow Very easy to apply, stunning deep yellow. In different lights can be cool and sometimes has a hint of warm orange. Used on two walls of a children’s bedroom with white / off white to soften.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So welcoming We used this paint in our new sun room along the wall underneath the windows. It looks great at all times of the day . We feel the discription above about it being softer in bright light is very true. It did take 3 coats to achieve a lovely finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, cheerful not acid A lovely bright yellow for our large kitchen/family area, the heart of the home. Paired with cooking apple green for the woodwork. Goes on beautifully, like painting double cream on the walls! No runs or brushmarks despite our old irregular walls and lots of filler/repatched plaster it looks good and even. 2 coats was plenty. One minor gripe F&B, when paying this amount for paint (yes it is expensive - you get what you pay for) I would have expected the batch numbers to have been matched when more than one tin bought. To be fair this wasn't a problem but not quite the attention to detail I expected from such a premium brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sunshine yellow Used in my North facing dining room , wow was this a burst of sunshine yellow on the walls . We used Estate Emulsion which is a flat cover on the walls .. coverage is superb 2 coatings did it . And this is a large room with high ceilings being a Victorian house. The skirtings were done in Mouse ‘s Back and the coving and picture rails and panelled door in Clunch which my husband calls a white with soot in it . I did have a couple of nervous moments as this is a very acidic yellow , however it changes colour at least 4 times throughout the day , and we are in a winter month at the moment. My thoughts were yellow taupe and grey colour scheme. Clean and fresh look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful mellow yellow We used Citron in Exterior Eggshell for our front door. We tried four (non F&B) colours before we invested in this and boy was it worth it. A beautiful yellow that makes you happy just to look at, it was the consistency of double cream and went on like silk compared to previous paints we've tried. Our front door now reflects the sunshine within and we love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful yellow shade I have been in love with this shade for a long time, I think it's actually a little bit darker than the image showed, but it's a beautiful yellow, a calming tone too.
