Farrow and Ball...Eh.
Member the pulls that I found that match the stove perfectly? I still don't know if I'll end up using them. Might be too kitschy and take away the classic quality I want. But time will tell.
So in my search for the best color(s) in the universe for my kitchen, I took a little field trip to the Farrow and Ball showroom in Soho. I picked out a few fabulous looking grays.
First let me say that I am one of those people who can tell which item costs even ten dollars more than the others, I can always tell the difference between top of the line and mid and I annoyingly find myself drawn to insanely expensive things.
But I must admit that I don't see the difference in quality between Farrow and Ball paint and good ole Benjamin Moore. I know apartment therapy types would bludgeon me to death with a Design Within Reach bookshelf just for blaspheming this way, but sorry.
I'm not saying ithe samples weren't nice, it just that they weren't particularly amazing.
And none of the shades ended up knocking my socks off.
These are the three samples, I painted them on canvases so I could move them around the house in case I wanted to use them elsewhere, which I probably don't.
All of these colors were sort of too strong when placed next to the stove, and none of them look cool with the red pulls (which I may end up ditching anyway but whatever)
So, while I think it's a nice product I won't be spending more than double the price of Mr. Moore to paint F&B, even in the kitchen.
