Pointing

No.2003

A warm and delicate white

This fresh and uncomplicated white is named after the colour of lime pointing used in traditional brickwork. One of our Red Based Neutrals, Pointing has a warm undertone to it which creates the prettiest of spaces when used on walls and always softens the feel of a room alongside strong, traditional colours. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Wimborne White

Pointing is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 120.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very kind to an older property Our kitchen doesn't get much natural light, and was painted white when we first bought the house. Somehow, the white just looked grey. We had used Pointing successfully in a north facing room previously, and so did a test patch in the kitchen. Instant transformation! It's softer and mellow and so much nicer for our 100 year old cottage. We loved it so much, that we used it all the way up the stairs and along the landing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage This paint only required two coats; great quality coverage. Beautiful off-white, just what we wanted. Thank you for the colour-matching advice over the phone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile colour Had this before in our Victorian villa and have used it here in our “new” seventies house. Really fresh but softer than white and definitely not cream. Goes on like a dream with good coverage. Would definitely recommend.
