Key features

Low sheen

Low sheen

The soft, low sheen satin finish of our Estate Eggshell subtly highlights interior wood and metal. 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 interior wood and metal

For interior wood and metal

The soft, low sheen satin finish of our Estate Eggshell subtly highlights interior wood and metal. 20% sheen. 

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. 

Washable

Washable

Estate Eggshell is a durable, washable finish so you can easily wipe away spills and marks – without wiping away paint. 

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 Obsessed We are obsessed with this color. It’s more peachy than we thought, but it’s perfect. You can expect the same quality as all other F&B colours. We live in California and this being part of the California collection, really gives our dining room that relaxed but sophisticated California vibe

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this paint shade After many paint samples I decided on this one for our en-suite bathroom and I love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I used this colour for our holiday cottage bathroom , to bring a feeling of cosiness to a windowless room. Worked a treat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely soft terracotta colour This is a beautifully flat paint that has a subtle glow when on the wall. A faded orange with pinky undertones, hard to describe the colour but was just on a skype call with my daughter who is in Majorca at the moment, and behind her were large, old bricks that were the same colour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely terracotta, with peachy & apricot notes We recently painted our ceiling and beams with Faded Terracotta and Salt from the California Collection. The room is Southwest facing, so we have such a lovely evening glow in the room and Salt is a lovely crisp, cool white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Color! We used this shade in our guest bedroom--it transformed the space and prompted me to start thinking of using warmer colors throughout our house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money The pictures make this color look so beautiful, so foolishly I bought a $50 small can of paint sure that it would warm up my guest room, as no sample was available. The color is very orange and has the look of a plastic bandaid. So disappointed and annoyed that this was the smallest size available for a color that is totally misrepresented online.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Colour variation We made a mistake of not buying a sample pot before putting it onto the wall. The paint colour in real life has a lot more salmon/peachy tone to what you see via screen. We are expecting a warm neutral with a slight hint of red but red terracotta looks very peachy on our hallway wall. All of our family agree that this paint looks nothing like what is shown on the website.. We redo the wall with FB’s Oxford Stone (light neutral warm brown) and are happy with the result.
