Transformed our front door
Like many people I am a total fan of Farrow and Ball and both my houses, inside and out are painted in it. Have used Off Black before on masonry and love the effect, but had not used it in eggshell before. A friend, when she saw it, said it looked " rich. " Not sure if she meant the house looked like a rich person lived in it, or it was a rich tone? Have had many compliments this week, so I made a good choice in the end.

We used this on one wall of our staircase to make a dramatic wall on which to hang lots of pictures and it looks great. We painted the other walls and ceiling in Wevet and that's a great combination, especially with brilliant white woodwork. It goes on looking jet black but dries to a slightly more muted recently cleaned chalkboard sort of a colour. As with all F&B paints it has great depth of colour and a lovely finish. The only downside is that it mhows up marks very easily, though that is more about the dark colour than anything wrong with the quality of the paint.

Great finish, easy to apply
I used the paint for cast iron radiators and for old cast iron bath and it was easy to apply to both, great covering, perfect consistency and overall great result even through I am an amateur with not much experience.
For the bath tub I didn't even use the right primer, just black metal paint underneath and it still worked very well, leaving no brush marks.

A beautiful colour
We bought Off Black after seeing it in on the website and have used it on the floor throughout upstairs and on the staircase which has literally just had its second coat. It's a great paint to work with as it goes down so well and the finish is perfect. We love it. It works really well with Lamp Room Grey which we used in our study.

Great colour. I used it as floor paint on a tatty old cottage staircase with shabby, patched boards. Couldn't get the right colour and then discovered this. It is absolutely perfect and I have had tons of comments about how great it looks. I am thrilled.

I have black appliances in my kitchen and used this on the cill and as a feature behind the hob and it is perfect. For a 'warm' black this is the one for you.
