Yes I have and have put it on lining paper but the floor and paint are new as the room is an extension . I’m pretty sure it’s ok but was worried about the oak having a yellow tinge and the paint having a lilac tinge . I’m ok to give it a go and if the light is wrong I can paint over it ! I was just checking it wasn’t a definite no go ! I’ve been looking at colours fir so long I think my eyes are broken !
We have a bleached oak floor and elephants breath. Looks great! It looks different on different walls depending on the light and I really like this. My furniture is more yellow oak and this also looks ok
If you dont want to spend a fortune on Farrow and Ball paint, you can use Johnstones. If you have a Decorators Merchants near you Cane Adam or Brewers etc They can mix F&B colours as they have the recipes for the colours. I hope this helps?
We have Johnstone's colour match to elephants breath, it's great and you can get much more robust paint types. Note that it does look a bit lilac in the afternoon light where we are (but not at all in our old house). As for the oak floors, there are so many shades that you'll really need to do a tester...
I would only get colour matched if I was painting a really big area and it would make a significant difference to cost. Generally I paint only a small area at a time, and splash out on F&B, Little Greene or Mylands. I also make a lot of use of my tester pots - nearly everything in my house is from junk shops, skips or ebay, painted with mixed up remnants of test pots.
I'll never do F&B origjnals again. The colours are lovely but it's a pain to paint on (decorators are never fans), and then it marks like crazy - and touch ups are tricky, because their batch system means that often a new tin won't be an exact match. If I gave budget to splash I'll go Little Greene or Mylands any day, but honestly Johnstone colour matching is very good - just alwaya do a good size tester, never match with Dulux, as they match to their closest colour, which is not necessarily that close at all.
@Namechange128 I totally agree F&B is way over hyped, Mylands marble matt is brilliant paint, such good coverage & really hardwearing. Little Greene has some good colours & paint & paper is good as well. Johnson’s paint is a good alternative to Dulux/Homebase etc. Yy using tester pots, for small projects I have saved so much money by doing this, frames/shelves/mirrors all sorts.
