Calamine

No.230

Delicate pink with a touch of grey

Calamine is indeed named after the lotion we all used as children to soothe nettle stings and rashes! A light touch of grey prevents this subtle pink from being too sugary, giving a much fresher finish. In smaller rooms it becomes intense, but in larger well lit rooms it feels much more delicate. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Great White

Calamine is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 52.

Product Information 
ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our 132 paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to use. Has to be the easiest eggshell to apply, so smooth and drys quickly for recoating. Looks great and it’s tough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour depth. A customer chose this colour and I ordered it online for delivery, which was a very smooth transaction by the way. This paint goes on so smoothly and covers very well due in part to the depth of pigmentations in the colour. A little more expensive than some other 2.5 ltr emulsions but well worth paying for the easy coverage and excellent finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revitalise old render Excellent paint that covers well on new render and matched well with existing paint

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect choice I have been looking for a subtle pink for a while and finally chose Calamine for the conservatory and later, living room. It’s a calm pink with a hint of grey. A colour I will love forever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft calamine Decided to paint my kitchen stable door (which was just stained) the same colour as my walls. Wow! Wish I’d done it much sooner. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this to do a feature wall in my teenage daughter’s bedroom. She wanted a blush and slate colour scheme (same as my bedroom) and I persuaded her to have one wall in Calamine. I think the whole room would have been overkill but the subtlety of the shade is great. Paint went on beautifully and she is thrilled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pink for non-pink lovers I was looking for a pink for our bathroom which wasn't too sickly or overbearing and this hit the spot. It's a really nice cool pink and not at all garish. Bluey/chalky tones. Works well in the bathroom with white and black tiles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful shade I was a little worried that this shade might be a little sugary. I couldn’t have been more wrong. It is a sophisticated, grown up subtle pink that is totally on trend and is working brilliantly with my dark grey kitchen cabinets. I love it!
