Exterior Eggshell

Originally chosen by colourist John Fowler, Hound Lemon is a mysterious name for this delicate shade. With cooler undertones than many of our yellows, it feels especially fresh used in a garden-facing room, where it mimics the tones of nature outside.

Exterior Eggshell brings long-lasting, rich colour to exterior wood and metal. The low sheen finish remains flexible once dry, protecting wood and metal surfaces through changing weather, while preservatives help prevent the growth of algae and fungi.

Key features

Low sheen

Low sheen

The soft, low sheen satin finish of our Exterior Eggshell brings long-lasting colour to outdoor spaces. 20% sheen. 

Our deeper, richer colours are available in a range of finishes with different sheen levels. Sheen always affects how colour appears: the same shade in gloss can look very different in matt. That’s why we specifically adjust the formula for every finish to make sure the balance is exactly right and you get the colour you were expecting. Our colours and finishes are formulated together, so you simply can’t have one without the other.

For exterior wood and metal

For exterior wood and metal

Suitable for exterior wood and metal, our Exterior Eggshell brings long-lasting colour to outdoor spaces with a finish that remains flexible once dry, protecting wood and metal surfaces through changing weather. Added preservatives help to prevent the growth of mold and mildew, and the resin-rich formula resists flaking, peeling, and fading for up to six years. 

From walls, floors and furniture to radiators, skirtings and sheds, our range of paint finishes can help you transform almost any surface in your home (and outside it, too). Browse our full selection of finishes to find the perfect paint for your project.

Weather resistant and flexible

Weather resistant and flexible

This finish has been carefully designed to be water resistant and stay flexible once dry, protecting wood and metal surfaces through changing weather.

Protected from mold and mildew

Lasts up to 6 years

When applied according to our Product Advice Sheets, the resin-rich formula resists flaking, peeling and fading for up to six years. So, your exterior stays beautiful, no matter the weather. 

100% water based

100% water based

We’re proud to have been the first in the industry to transition to a completely water based range back in 2010. As a result, all of our finishes, including our tough trim and floor paints, are made with a low-odour, low-VOC water base that scores A+ for indoor air quality. 
 
Plus, our water based paint doesn’t discolour over time like solvent based paints can. So your spaces stay beautiful for longer. 

Toy safe

Toy safe

This finish is independently tested and certified toy-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021). That means you can and a splash of colour to toys, cribs and other surfaces little ones come into contact with. Our paints also have hardly any odour and don’t need any solvents to clean up, so you can breathe easy during application and beyond.
