Green Smoke

No.47

A dark and smoky green

A smoky green blue, this colour was popular in interiors during the late 19th century. It has an irresistibly inviting deepness and weathered familiarity when used in exterior situations, while evoking calm and serenity when used inside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice color It may be very good for shutters of the italian and french riviera houses with the walls colored in red, frames in white and shutters in green... Be careful and test the color however. I think the color is quite light under Nice sun. I dit not retain it in my case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour This smokey green colour went very well with lime white and I used it on the low wall in the Conservatory. Very pleased with the finish and the calming effect in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another winning colour! Having used F&B paints extensively in the house, this was my first adventure using it outdoors with exterior eggshell in Green Smoke for our new garden log cabin. As with all F&B colours, despite endless tester trials, applying it for real requires you to hold your nerve and perservere. Green Smoke is a beautiful, enigmatic colour, almost blue on first application, by the second coat all that smokey grey green appears. As with the interior paints, the colour changes with the light and being in northern Scotland, ranges from a playful sage like green through to moody bluey green. All lovely and much admired by everyone who has seen it. The exterior eggshell is super easy to use and drys quickly. I used brushes throughout and was really impressed by how the paint levels out to an even light sheen finish. Two coats, carefully applied, were all I needed with a third on the front as this is the most exposed part. As you might expect from this review, I continue to love these stunning paints and can't wait to move onto my next project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PREMIUM PRODUCT Bought this paint after I saw it featured in one of the F&B brochures. Immediately on seeing it I thought it would be a perfect colour for the front door of my older type house Have just finished applying a third coat and the finish is as expected. Looks really lovely, very understated elegance with a highly durable finish. And brushes clean up in water..how great is that!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Now my favourite room in the house! Green Smoke is the most perfect dark green shade, it has warmed up our home office and made it feel so cozy. As always F & B pigmentation is just to die for - that is why I only buy their paint. As with their other shades, it changes colour throughout the day, am so happy we went for green smoke, as going dark can be daunting but the gamble definitely paid off!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sultry This is by far the pest paint I have ever used. It’s easy to work with, thick, nearly splatter free and a little goes a long way. Having used the appropriate undercoat/primer and 2 coats of Green Smoke, we had enough left over to do most of the downstairs as well. The colour is deep, rich and sultry, a perfect choice for the bedroom. Thank you F&B. I’m now a total convert and will never buy another brand again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very hard wearing. I have been using this shade of your paint for many years now. Long before it became so popular. It is economical in use and very easy to apply. Giving a finish which lasts for years, with occasional touch ups. Living far from shops, it is very helpful to be able to order from you online. Thankyou.
