A tranquil lilac

Calluna takes its name from the beautiful heather so prolific across the moors of Scotland. A touch of black ensures that it appears more lilac than pink, making this colour feel both soft and tranquil yet strangely sophisticated. It can be contrasted with sympathetic Great White or used with darker Brassica and Pelt to great effect. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Wimborne White

Calluna is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 82.

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.


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 Beautiful, hard wearing coverage I decorated our hall, stairs and landing in Calluna, but was unsure if it would withstand the daily battering from boys, dogs, cats and a husband with an absolute disregard for freshly-painted walls. The coverage was perfect, it’s wipeable and looks beautiful despite being in an area with limited amounts of natural light. It shifts colour throughout the day and moves between shades of grey and lilac, so I’d suggest hanging lining paper on your wall with the shade painted on and leaving it there for a day or two to check if you love how it looks at various times of day. I love it, my children’s football boots haven’t destroyed it and it brings so much warmth to an area that would otherwise be fairly bland. Highly recommendable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I purchased various colours ( all light pastel shades ) for the bedrooms and the hall of my house. I did take the advice of also buying the undercoat/primer. After applying the primer and the first coat you could still see that there were areas not fully covered,however,the second coat made a world of difference. My wife is really pleased with the colours shades and the quality of the paint. I used the paint as instructed on the tins and was impressed that it was not ' chalky ' like some brands of paints. I would certainly not hesitate to use this pain again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant I cannot believe how easy it is to work with this paint, true to colour and texture. Having tried another ‘popular ‘ paint recently and been sorely disappointed this was an absolute pleasure. I had 3 sample pots and will be ordering soon, so hard to choose when I love all of them.
