Green Ground

No.206

A pale and fresh green

This refreshing green is a lightened version of Cooking Apple Green, created as a background colour to some of our prettiest botanical wallpapers. The paleness of Green Ground has a calming feel, so is well suited to use in kitchens to create a contented family atmosphere. Often paired with a bright white to enhance its colour, it can also be used on panelling with our darker Green Smoke to create a reassuringly historic look that seems as if it’s always belonged.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our 132 paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from all round excellence again from Farrow & Ball As usual, this F 7 B paint gave excellent results all round. Some paints from other suppliers may be cheaper but it is well worth paying extra to achieve the best results

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wonderful, light, fresh colour speedy delivery from online order. The paint is beautiful both as to texture and colour. Teamed it with White Tie on wood work and deeper cream units which we didn't want to change. The large kitchen in our Edwardian house now looks fresh and springlike, very reminiscent of the green and cream schemes from the early 20th century without looking dated. Follow instructions regarding undercoat/topcoats to the letter and the result is excellent. Fully recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely peaceful green We have a grade 2 listed farmhouse and wanted a colour in the hallway which and would fit in with the beams and character. We chose green ground on the two side walls and James White on the other walls. We then painted the inside of the front door in Plummet and we are very happy. The paint covered like a dream (almost only needed 1 coat) and the end result looks fab. We’ve also since used green ground to paint one wall in our 5 year old son’s dinosaur themed bedroom and he loves it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pretty colour, high quality paint. We used this paint for exterior doors; it's a very pretty colour and has the usual F and B qualities - easy of application, with excellent coverage - we used one coat where we thought at least 2 would be needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Depth of Colour The estate emulsion in green ground was the perfect colour for our bedroom, and the paint was easy to apply and gave a fantastic quality finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh colour Green Ground is a fresh spring/Apple green. It is a little more vivid than I was wanting but a refreshing shade nevertheless. I feel that it needs a darker contrast to do it justice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect floor paint I'm really pleased with the finish of the Green Ground floor paint. It was easy to apply and has a nice smooth finish. It is easy to wipe clean and we have had no problems with the paint chipping.
