We have vert de terre on our kitchen walls. It's definitely green. I absolutely adore it and surprisingly, it looks fab with our gun metal grey and shocking pink curtains. Sounds grim, I know, but it really does work.
oooh that is my holy grail of paint colours, and I've never been able to find it
It's definitely not Vert de Terre (goes on quite dark green) - actually I've been through most of the Farrow and Ball testers trying to find it and haven't yet.
Having said that I was reading the Feb issue of BBC Homes and Antiques (don't laugh ) and there's something quite close to it (on page 40, if there's anyone out there as sad as me). It's on interior woodwork and is Farrow and Ball 'Green Stone' oil eggshell.
It's hard to tell from a photo obviously but it looks quite close, though possibly not quite greenish enough...
Righty ho, I will summon up courage and go door knocking when I am next in the vicinity. I mean, they can hardly be offended, surely, can they...? (As long as it's not a MNer... watch out for a thread entitled 'AIBU to be annoyed at a madwoman knocking on my door to ask about paint?')
Watch this thread and I will report back when I have done so.
It could be that we are barking up the wrong tree with F&B entirely, but being the Cotswolds I doubt it. One thing's for sure, it ain't gonna be 'Wilko Value'! Bleurrgh at some of the paint choices in there, [fshame] that I <whisper> frequent Wilko in the first place... but loo roll is loo roll.
