Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice colour After trying a few sample pots, decided green smoke wasn’t for us. However loved, loved, loved the sample of Inchyra blue. It has so much depth and presence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from F&B is wonderful. mixed feeling about the color I used modern emulsion for a bright small study with one South facing window and one North facing window. I have somewhat mixed feelings about how the color turned out. In the early morning the color is a lovely mysterious blueish green reminiscent of a lagoon. But by midday it becomes more green and dull and very much veers into army green, which I don't like so much. I just wish it had a little more blue in it. My husband said it is a bit oppressive and I have to agree. Now I'm trying to relegate it as much as possible to the background by using bright colors against it. FB had a blog post saying bright warm colors really pop against this and that is right. I've found that teal, orange, red, gold and big black and white photography work really well to break up this color, and are actually super necessary. In my picture I've tried out a red Ikea curtain(which I'm actually going to switch out for orange). Pools of light help too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour I saw this colour in my nephews house and have been lusting after it ever since. I nearly changed my mind as I thought it looked a bit murky on the test patch. So glad I decided to risk it. It is a very classy, smoky, natural green. Very happy.
