We need to forward a copy of this to Eddie Grundy in the Archers (BBC Radio 4) - last week to repair a smartly decorated, historic house he approximated this type of paint using cheap emulsion with added flour!

Wonderful!

I had no idea about the colour names but I like the fact that they have been taken from dialect words.

I love to go to Shipping Forecast areas, the latest one being Macrihanish on the west of Scotland a few weeks ago. I can't say that I recall any particular colour though.

On the back of each F&B colour chart it briefly mentions the origin of each colour name, such names as Fowler Pink, Elephant's Breach, Mouse's Back, etc. We have just decorated our bedroom in a paint called Bone ... to me it looks sage green but to others it looks slightly grey. Furniture has been painted House White (which just happens to be a light cream!) and the woodwork (windowsill, skirting, etc) is in Clunch (after a type of chalk.)
I think this is the 4th such F&B book on décor/colour. I have the previous three, this is now on my List ...
