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.

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.

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

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 4 out of 5 by from Great Colour Requires a few layers, but once the final coat is done it has a nice chalky, grey-green colour. Beautiful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as expected I only picked this paint as it matched a colour. When I realised how expensive it was I thought the quality would be good. My other half painted as he always does but he has never moaned as much about any paint, he even googled the paint himself to see if it was just him but sadly not. We put some masking tape on to paint picture rail and the paint peeled off with tape? Wouldn’t use again, had I known would have just asked B&Q to colour match.

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 4 out of 5 by from Calm and beautiful A beautiful calm colour, perfect for my back door, however it has come up a little lighter than the colour chart, despite using a dark grey undercoat/primer.
