Just started stripping off old paint ready for new fresh colour.

Just can't decide which colour. Anyone have F & B paintl on their door they could recommend?

My neighbours have down pipe, which looks gorgeous.

My parents have a smokey grey but it almost looks dusky blue but it looks beautiful

mummaemma Mon 29-Jul-13 13:42:01

Thanks for quick response. isnt that a dark grey? have a dark blue at the moment. Was thinking of mid blue or green ??

mummaemma Mon 29-Jul-13 13:47:10

Shameless lurk as I was about to ask the same. I'm having a new gate made and need to choose a colour for it to be painted and then plan to do the front door the same. My neighbour has f&b green smoke which is gorgeous but I'd like to have something different.

quite like the look of green smoke. Trying to find an image of a front door.
what colours are you considering Koolforcats?
some i like are card room green, lichen, railings, parma grey, green blue, castle grey, pigeon, calke green, lulworth blue. so many i like. too many to buy samples lol.

I'm going to an f&b shop to drool tomorrow mummaemma so I'll let you know! smile

ok thanks would love to know what you choose. Have never been to F & B shop. think its 30 miles way. Last time i just ordered colour from Homebase.

mummaemma Wed 31-Jul-13 13:13:12

bump - Anyone else? your suggestions very much appreciated :-)

trixymalixy Wed 31-Jul-13 13:15:19

I'm painting mine pigeon.

koolforcats Wed 31-Jul-13 19:41:43

Well I ended up coming out with a colour I'd never intended! It's kind of purple grin bressica I think it was called. Not what I was planning so I hope I like it!

koolforcats Wed 31-Jul-13 19:43:27

I mean brassica smile

mummaemma Wed 31-Jul-13 21:53:43

Ooh yes have seen pictures of front doors in that colour. Does look lovely. If u r on Facebook their page is good if you look at images there's a brassica door. Great comments.

koolforcats Wed 31-Jul-13 23:17:54

Ooh thanks, great suggestion! I just had a quick look and can't find that image - when was it posted/how do I find it? Ta!smile

make sure you are on the correct page, theres a couple. Farrow & Ball with over 71,000 likes. posted 17 may. Theres a couple of pictures on pinterest too.

Found it, thanks. I hope you get on well with your project. I think going to a F&B shop probably confused me more which is why I bought something completely different to what I had gone in for! grin

I've got green blue, its much greener than blue though and doesn't look anything like the website example

mummaemma Sat 03-Aug-13 16:36:55

Whatkunffuthat thankyou blue green is one of my shortlist, can you have a look at my other post on "home decoration" called paint colour? theres a blue green there and i thought it looked more blue than green? thankyou.
Koolforcats, have you started painting yet?

mummaemma Sat 03-Aug-13 16:37:53

i meant green blue??

whatkungfuthat Sat 03-Aug-13 16:51:37

Its been ages since I painted it but the door is covered and not faded by the sun so perhaps they have changed the shade a bit? I also painted the wooden frame of my conservatory and an old cupboard and it looks quite green there too. I have an old bench outside painted in Cuprinol 'seagrass' and its a slightly greener and duller version of that iyswim?

This is it on the old cupboard
