Soft Disemper

Originally chosen by colourist John Fowler, Hound Lemon is a mysterious name for this delicate shade. With cooler undertones than many of our yellows, it feels especially fresh used in a garden-facing room, where it mimics the tones of nature outside.

This traditional distemper has an exquisite, soft, powdery finish and is recommended for very detailed interior plasterwork. Its blend of natural resin and minerals means it can be delicately applied, allowing detail to be preserved on intricate mouldings.

Archive colours are made to order therefore refunds & returns are unavailable.

Key features

Very matt

Very matt

This traditional delicate distemper has an exquisite, soft, powdery finish and is recommended for very detailed interior plasterwork. 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.

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.
