Can anyone recommend? I've been toying with Dulux's Tuscan Glade 2, and got completely overwhelmed with choice looking at F&B and Little Greene.

I haven't got any sample pots yet, and am looking for a strongish sagey green.

I don't have any recs, but I LOVE that as front door colour.

We drove ourselves mad with front door greens, eventually ending up with the imaginatively named "Pale Green" but it's a RAL colour, meaning that you can easily have it made up by different manufacturers and we can have a new garage door made to match.

Thanks - what's a RAL colour?

I usually don't venture further than Dulux ready mixed shades (and remembered why when I saw the extent of the colour cards in Homebase).

After much searching Little Greene Paint Pearl - cannot remember if it was Pearl mid or pale though. Pic not great but it is a lovely green!

Wow, lovely house!

It's a beautiful green, although I'm looking for something darker. Looks lovely with the house though.

Thank you! There is a dark version of Pearl I think. Little Greene tend to have a pale, mid and dark version of their paints which is why it took me so long to choose, so I would certainly have a look at all their greens!

Good luck!

I used F&B Card Room Green. It looked great with yellowish London stock bricks and we had it for about ten years. Painted it over with something else now, though as eventually half the street had something very similar! Miss it a bit.

I got a sample of Dulux Authentic Origins Moss Blanket today, which is lovely but doesn't come in gloss.

F&B Lichen is a possibility. I did also like the Card Table Green though!

Dulux Celtic Forest (the darkest one) is a lovely colour
