What our customers say

Just finished latest decorating job with Winter Honesty (attached). As it was fresh plaster, I did a 50/50 wash coat with a cheap emulsion and a quick coat of white emulsion before painting the F&T pure matt. It was particularly noticeable that it doesn’t need a second coat as the coverage is so good and also you don’t get spattered with paint when using a roller, which you do with ordinary paint. Particularly good when you’re painting high ceilings.

Kind regards Peter

Your paint is a dream to use, our decorator loves it. The coverage is fantastic.

Graham (Norfolk)

Amazingly the paint arrived before 11.00 yesterday morning, so decorators happy and I am thrilled with the colour.  Thank you for getting it to us so quickly.  If I remember, I will send you a picture when finished!

Just wanted to say thank you.  Great customer service and paint is amazing.   

Tracy Toomey

Hi Clare, here is the photo we promised.
The paint was a dream to use. Thanks for all your help.

A quick note to say that all the paint arrived yesterday afternoon within the time limits that DPD had told me about in various emails.

Many thanks for the quick delivery, and the excellent product. I say excellent as our German and French decorators here were sceptical at first about using paint from England but, having tried it they really like it.

Photographs will follow but these will take about two to three months as the kitchen has yet to be made and installed, ditto some new furniture for the sitting room.

Many thanks again for the excellent service.

Graeme Ackroyd

Absolutely love this company. The paint is wonderful and goes on a dream. The customer service is outstanding. I can highly recommend them.

James Murray

I despise painting woodwork as I am never happy with the finish I get. Fenwick and Tilbrook paint on the other hand is so easy to use even a no hope DIYer like me gets great results!

I am going to paint our master bedroom shortly with F&T and I am actually looking forward to doing it which is a new experience 😀😀

David Peter

The attention to detail is superb!  A lovely company.

Just wanted to drop you a feedback email on my recent order. I ordered Smudgewand for my Hallway, absolutely love the colour and the coverage, I’ve always been a farrow and ball fan but I now think I have a new favourite, thank you. Even my decorator loved the paint!

Mandy Fahey

Morning Simon,
Just finished so I thought I would show you the wonderful paint that you sell.
Fantastic. Be in touch shortly.

Nick Smythe

I used your eggshell for the first time and I have to say it is the best I have ever used in my 30 years as a professional painter and decorator. I told Kent Blaxill they need to put it on their shelves!

David Gill of D Gill & Co Ltd, Norwich

I have completed my decorating project and have to say what a good product you have. Easy to use, easy to clean the brushes and roller but most important to us is the colour and finish. It took two coats as expected but we cannot stop looking at it. Thanks to Liz she certainly chose the colour. She is really pleased. We will be back!!

Chat soon – Bernie Vaughan, Norfolk

I cannot praise this company enough.

My wife had been pondering over colours to go with a wallpaper that she had purchased years ago.she wasn’t happy with any of her choices.In desperation she sent a sample of the wallpaper to Clare at Fenwick and Tilbrook.Within 24hours Clare had solved the problem.By guiding my wife in a different direction and giving her 2 choices of beautiful colours the dilemma was sorted.Peace has now resumed to our house Thanks Fenwick and Tilbrook and our hero Clare.

James Murray.

I recently bought your paint for several rooms and am delighted with the colours and quality.

Many thanks – Angie Ward, East Grinstead

My designer suggested we use Fenwick & Tilbrook paint and chose Paper, Oregon and Lead for my house.  I will be honest and admit that I tried to colour match the lighter colours, despite  advice given to me, and even my decorator admitted there was something missing with the Dulux match. He also said it’s one of the loveliest paints he has ever worked with! We are now using it throughout our entire home and even though the work isn’t finished, the walls are already looking amazing.

Samantha Wright, Esher.

The job I used your paint on was for a client in Notting Hill Gate, so it was just a request of the client.  As I said to the client, I have been around for a very long time in the painting game and I have used all manner of paints, but as in water based YOURS is the best paint I have ever used. The quality as you are brushing it on you just know. You have a fantastic product, better than Farrow and Ball, you need to market it better because you’ve got a perfect product. I will always recommend this paint to any of my clients, I’m just a small self-employed decorator but I know quality when I see it, or use it.

Kind regards, Chris, London

In 17 years as a professional decorator, this is the first product I have found that really does tick ALL the boxes.

Timothy Squires – The Plaster, Paint & Tile Company Ltd, Norfolk.

I just wanted to say that your paint is far superior to other, perhaps more widely advertised, top of the range paints. The proof is in my own front door. The paints are a dream to work with.

I have recommended it over the years to clients who are always impressed with the end result.

Annie Kwiatkowska – Anne at Home/interior Designer

I received the paint yesterday afternoon, bang on time from the delivery courier. I will recommend your company without hesitation and will be buying from you again.

Graham Heritage

I have just placed my second order having been very impressed by the customer service and the quality of the paint. I am using my Wagner sprayer to do my greenhouse and the exterior eggshell goes on beautifully and looks absolutely fantastic. Very highly recommended and a great company to deal with.

Jillian Clark, Derbyshire.

The paint was really easy to use and it didn’t even need a full two coats! We are really happy with the colour too – Great Lake.

Steve Woodward

Hi Fenwick & Tilbrook,

Just thought you may like to see the room so far in the “Winter Acorn” a little more to do yet setting up but almost there. We are really pleased with the paint.

Regards sarah @ Clark and English

Hi Clare & Simon,

I couldn’t wait to use the samples you sent…your paint is amazing, I love love the texture, the way it spreads and that I don’t have to use a sealant for protection. I can see me using a lot of your paints.

Fiona, Monsoon Dragonfly Interiors.

Hello Clare,

Just to say thank you for the paint and colour swatches. Firstly the exterior eggshell is absolutely brilliant! I may only be a humble DIYer but the paint covered so well it almost made painting window frames a joy this weekend!

Emma Lyttle, Wiltshire.

It is head and shoulders above the other leading brands – and I’ve used them all! From now on I will be recommending it to my customers. I can honestly say that I have never come across a better paint.

Simon Hall, Dream Décor.

Simon, many thanks for your email. I love the quality of your paints and tell everyone about them. I’m only doing this as a hobby since my accident. Glad you liked the sign. I’ll post you photos of the wooden Union Jack flag. 

Adam Pearce

Clients are amazed at the coverage with your paint and your water based eggshell goes on like a oil. Top product.

Simon Hall, Dream Décor.

We love Fenwick & Tilbrook paint. Both the colour range and quality of the paints are second to none. What’s more, our contractors love the paint! Unlike with other brands, where there are often grumblings about the application etc, we have received almost across the board satisfaction from them…one example that sticks in my mind, I came on site to a very fraught last week before the client was due to move in. Everyone was on edge and working like demons to get their jobs finished. One of the team was cursing and generally being unpleasant to be around so I kept my distance. Whilst I was still there he picked up the paint for the first time and went from making noises of great consternation to hmm’s, aah’s & ooh’s. Then proclaimed to the whole apartment in a pleasantly surprised tone: “tell ya wha’, this paint is bloody lovely! Goes on really well. Where d’ya get it from…?” An impressive seal of approval if ever I heard one!

Timna – Cooley & Rose

Hi Clare 

I just wanted to let you know /I’ve just painted my front door in Victoria and it looks amazing! I was unsure but wanted something soft that wasn’t green. I’m ordering another litre for my garage.

Moira Betteridge.

Please see photos of table frame painted with interior temple linen. Top oak from the Belvoir castle estate. 300-year-old tree fallen in a storm and I’ve
had it air drying for 10 years. Paint brill to put on and finish is great.


Kind regards – Adam.
