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 144.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft pink Looked at other pastel shades and decided on calamine. Very smart and subtle. Not too pink. Lovely finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calamine is so soothing When decorating my dressing room I was unsure what tones would look appropriate in a period property, this fitted the bill perfectly, the room has transformed into a light and airy space and the colour is a beautiful pink/grey

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calming and Uplifting for Yoga Room Pink was a bold choice for me, but after several tester pots I went with Calamine and it has worked really well. Really lifts the room. It’s only zingy when sun on it in the morning, which is joyous,mother wise just happy, calming and uplifting. Wimborne Whiten on ceiling. Took Calamine down over skirtings to lengthen walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour I’m completely in love with the colour of my new bedroom. I had picked out a pink and gold marble wallpaper for a feature wall and was looking for the perfect pink to complement it. I narrowed it down to the calamine and pink ground but after lots of research finally decided on the calamine (full disclosure I just researched and didn’t get any tester pots). I’m so glad I went with this shade it is just stunning. It feels more pinky in the light and the grey undertone really comes out of an evening. We have brought a also brought a pot for our en-suite to match our room. I can’t wait to have both rooms finished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Calamine I’m so pleased with this colour! The hint of grey makes it a grown up colour and it looks lovely as the light changes in the room throughout the day. It’s really cosy for the bedroom and looks great with our white and washed oak furniture. Farrow and Ball paint is definitely worth paying slightly more for, the quality and the coverage is brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swift delivery Bought a tester pot, and I am glad I did. It is a bit too pink for the living room, but I may well have it in the bedroom .
