Limewash

This delicate pink is named after the lotion used to soothe children's nettle stings and rashes.  

For a breathable finish, this historical, designer favourite is suitable for solid lime render exterior walls and interior walls and ceilings. Bonding to the building itself, it protects your home from the elements. Professional application recommended.

Key features

Very matt

Very matt

A historical specialist finish for exterior walls, and interior walls and ceilings with a very flat matt 2% sheen. 

Our deeper, richer colours are available in a range of finishes with different sheen levels. Sheen always affects how colour appears: the same shade in gloss can look very different in matt. That’s why we specifically adjust the formula for every finish to make sure the balance is exactly right and you get the colour you were expecting. Our colours and finishes are formulated together, so you simply can’t have one without the other. 

For interior lime plaster and exterior lime render

For interior lime plaster and exterior lime render

Suitable for solid lime render exterior walls and interior lime plaster walls and ceilings. Professional application is recommended.  

From walls, floors and furniture to radiators, skirtings and sheds, our range of paint finishes can help you transform almost any surface in your home (and outside it, too). Browse our full selection of finishes to find the perfect paint for your project. 

Highly breathable

Highly breathable

Limewash is designed to bond to the building itself, protecting your walls from the elements and allowing exceptional breathability.

Unique textured look

Unique textured look

This designer favourite is known for its beautiful, textured aesthetic, which creates an utterly unique look depending on how its applied. 

100% water based

100% water based

We’re proud to have been the first in the industry to transition to a completely water based range back in 2010. As a result, all of our finishes, including our tough trim and floor paints, are made with a low-odour, low-VOC water base that scores A+ for indoor air quality. 
 
Plus, our water based paint doesn’t discolour over time like solvent based paints can. So your spaces stay beautiful for longer.

Toy safe

Toy safe

This finish is independently tested and certified toy-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021). That means you can and a splash of colour to toys, cribs and other surfaces little ones come into contact with. Our paints also have hardly any odour and don’t need any solvents to clean up, so you can breathe easy during application and beyond.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Virgin to Farrow & Ball I love the colour of this paint I was a bit dubious at first as I haven’t used Farrow & Ball before and I don’t normally go for light colours but needn’t of worried the paint is a dream to use .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pink Perfection The most gorgeous colour possible. When you say Calamine I associate it with sun burn and chicken pox when young. This pink is however the most fabulous dreamy, dusky, delicious colour possible. We were going to wallpaper the chimney breast area of the room but after painting with this gorgeous colour, we don’t want to cover any of it up!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delighted with finish The flat finish is amazing and easy to apply to walls, cornice and skirting. The single colour looks very contemporary and the colour is fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful blush color Beautiful blush color, coverage was really great. Paint dries very quickly though, so you need to be careful not to go over areas you just painted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful delicate colour Delicate colour. Was looking for a slightly lighter pink than my beloved Cinder Rose and this was unfortunately too much lighter. We need one in between Cinder Rose and Calamine, please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour Fabulous. High quality product, as ever, from F&B. This colour looks really chic especially when set off but darker tones. I paired it with Railings and it is looks really stricking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous I opted for this colour after much deliberation. So pleased i did. It goes on beautifully, nice and creamy consistency, well worth the money. It is a lovely light pink with a hint of grey in different lights. Just like calamine lotion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The most beautiful pale pink Bought this for our little girl’s room- has dried beautifully even. Have never “invested” in a premium paint before this- but am thrilled with the quality of F&B & will definitely be buying more paint from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh and calm Chose this colour based on other reviews and did buy a sample for peace of mind. When I told my decorator, he groaned slightly. I also bought farrow and ball undercoat as I wanted the colour to be true. As it turned out decorator said it went on beautifully, he did 2 coats, which looks great, also there was zero smell. I love the change in colour in different lights, especially when it looks more grey. This is my first time buying this brand and I can’t wait to do the next room!
Date published: 2022-11-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty in Pink! Very pretty colour. Not the final one I chose for my bathroom, but I have a plan to use it elsewhere in my house!
