Good Questions: Farrow & Ball, Worth it?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

I have the Pratt and Lambert, Benjamin Moore, Farrow and Ball and Donald Kaufmen color cards. And at this point I’m so overwhelmed I’m just thinking white.

Does anyone know if Farrow and Ball is worth the price, or is Linen by Benjamin Moore just as good as “White Tie”?

We have heard good things about Farrow and Ball, but see no reason to spend that much on paint. You can usually get any color mixed in a Benjamin Moore paint, so choose your color and ask the shop to mix it up in the cheaper paint.

As for colors, we like Ralph Lauren for whites (excellent collection) and Benjamin Moore for the rest. However, as posted earlier preferences run personal. See this post: MUG likes Pratt & Lambert. (Thanks, Suzanne!) MGR
