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 4.8 out of 5 by 64.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Depth and character of F+B colours Our house is finished with a variey of F+B colours which we have been using for over 12 years now. It isn't cheap, but we always say it's worth every penny. What strikes us is the depth of colour which can and does change in different light conditions which we love. Keep up the great work. Calum

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paint Love Farrow and Ball paint. I upcycle old furniture and the eggshell finish is lovely. Also use emulsion on walls. Just trying the new black (which goes on purple but dries a gorgeous colour)
