Vert De Terre


A delicate aged green

This fresh and incredibly soft green is reminiscent of the pigment green earth. With its blue undertone it creates the softest of atmospheres, being less intense and cooler than Cooking Apple Green but fresher and less grey than Ball Green. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Slipper Satin

Vert De Terre is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 157.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cosy bedroom! After trying many greens, decided on verte de terr to bring the outside garden in on our ground floor flat. The room doesn’t get a huge amount of light but this shade of green is just right. Matched it onto radiator and think it looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour. Really lovely colour that looks perfect on our new bath panelling. Only needed 2 coats after primer and wearing well despite some heavy abuse from two small children!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Verre de terre bedroom I repainted our master bedroom in the verre de terre and we re so so happy with it. We only did two coats and the colour was perfect and looks very different depending on the light. It was my first paint job and the finish in estate emulsion is so powdery and beautiful! A pleasure to use .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Finish and Colour So happy to have gone with F & B paint worth every penny to get the superb finish and colour depth. I recommend using the undercoat did a test with and without and it makes a difference I believe. Tried other paints but none like this for the finish. It is greener than my photos show as my camera does not show the lovely aged green colour well.. Oh and I asked for advice and it was great, really helpful thank you!
