Exterior Eggshell

This tranquil lilac takes its name from the beautiful heather so prolific across the moors of Scotland.  

Exterior Eggshell brings long-lasting, rich colour to exterior wood and metal. The low sheen finish remains flexible once dry, protecting wood and metal surfaces through changing weather, while preservatives help prevent the growth of algae and fungi. The resin-rich formula resists flaking, peeling, and fading for up to six years.

Key features

Low sheen

Low sheen

The soft, low sheen satin finish of our Exterior Eggshell brings long-lasting colour to outdoor spaces. 20% 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 exterior wood and metal

For exterior wood and metal

Suitable for exterior wood and metal, our Exterior Eggshell brings long-lasting colour to outdoor spaces with a finish that remains flexible once dry, protecting wood and metal surfaces through changing weather. Added preservatives help to prevent the growth of algae and fungi, and the resin-rich formula resists flaking, peeling, and fading for up to six years. 

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.

Weather resistant and flexible

Weather resistant and flexible

This finish has been carefully designed to be water resistant and stay flexible once dry, protecting wood and metal surfaces through changing weather. At the same time, it also offers the highest level of water vapour permeability to allow them to breathe. So, you can transform your exterior with colour that lasts.  

Protected from fungi and algae

When applied according to our Product Advice Sheets, the resin-rich formula resists flaking, peeling and fading for up to six years. So, your exterior stays beautiful, no matter the weather.

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 Calluna paint Lovely colour, goes on very smoothly & great coverage

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Architect recommends each Farrow & Ball colour I love all the colours of Farrow & Ball and can recommend each. This one matches perfect with my interior design

Rated 5 out of 5 by from transformative An east-facing guest bedroom with dingy brown walls (a former owner was to blame) has been transformed with Calluna. The room is gorgeous in the bright morning light and serene at night. I may be more in love with the Great White we used on the woodwork than Calluna itself. Great White is mysterious, subtle, and captivating. I can't figure out how such a minimal color can have such a powerful effect, but it does.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Farrow & Ball modern emulsion I bought Calluna In Modern emulsion as I was painting my bathroom, have to say I have used F&B paints for about 16 years previously having always used estate emulsion with correct undercoat and exterior and interior eggshell. I have to say I was very disappointed with the modern emulsion it reminded me of another brand of paint . I ended up rubbing it down re undercoating and using estate emulsion.
