Limewash

This warm grey’s name is a play on words, like the lighter Skimming Stone. Typical of the colours used by the bohemian Bright Young Things between the wars.  

For a breathable finish, this historical, designer favourite is suitable for solid lime render exterior walls and interior walls and ceilings. Bonding to the building itself, it protects your home from the elements. Professional application recommended.

Key features

Very matt

Very matt

A historical specialist finish for exterior walls, and interior walls and ceilings with a very flat matt 2% 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 interior lime plaster and exterior lime render

For interior lime plaster and exterior lime render

Suitable for solid lime render exterior walls and interior lime plaster walls and ceilings. Professional application is recommended.  

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.

Unique textured look

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.
