Using Farrow and Ball paint in bath?

9 years ago

am considering using a farrow and ball color for our master bath. I am unsure about using the paint its (it has it's pros and cons). The color is prettier than I thought it would be, it was recommended by design consultant at the store (I brought in my tile samples, pictures, and described my floor tile).

My problem is that I am unsure about using f&b in the bathroom. We had previous issues with moisture such that steam would condense and leave marks on walls. The previous owner had repainted the room while it was still on the market (ie before we saw the house). It was weird because it was happening on opposite side of the room from the shower. We've added an additional fan to combat this but still worried that we might have the same issues if we don't use a "kitchen and bath" paint.

Also has anyone had any success with using Benjamin Moore paint tinted with f&b colors? I've heard that it is difficult to copy their colors because their paints use more pigments and of course different base formulas, but am curious to hear other experiences. Would also love to know if anyone has used f&b in a full bathroom and have had issues after.
