So I have been painting Farrow & Ball Blackened, after putting a second coat on – it became apparent that I had used two different paints. It seems they do both ‘estate’ and ‘modern’ emulsion, the latter having shine to it. This shine incidentally puts the ceiling’s plaster finish to shame.
I must confess I wasn’t particularly in love with the colour and I think it’s time we were a bit more bold. A boldness similar to Louise’s dining room, which is still coming along with a new piece of furniture to finish painting.
Other colours under consideration, going to get some Fired Earth tester pots!
