Estate Emulsion

This stone colour was originally created by John Sutcliffe for a classic Nash house in Regent's Park.  

Estate Emulsion is a classic choice for low-traffic interior walls and ceilings. Very matt with a distinctive, chalky finish, it minimises imperfections and creates a beautiful depth of colour.

Key features

Very matt

Very matt 

Estate Emulsion is a very matt finish with a chalky 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.

Classic, chalky look

Classic, chalky look 

A true classic, Estate Emulsion is a distinctive, chalky finish that minimises imperfections and creates beautiful depth of colour. Due to this unique texture, it’s best suited to less-busy areas without a lot of traffic.

For walls and ceilings in low-traffic areas

For walls and ceilings in low-traffic areas 

Estate Emulsion is our classic finish for interior walls and ceilings in low-traffic areas. Gently wipeable but not washable.

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.

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 Stonework Restored London stone has proven to be very close to the original colour of the unpainted stonework of my Victorian mid-terrace house and now looks superb. It would be helpful to also have exterior masonry available in a smaller tin as I ran out with just a couple windowsill to due, and had to order another 5ltr tin, which is not good value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning and stylish This paint is so easy to use and the colour is great. I was a bit nervous when I started to apply it as it's for the bedroom and I thought it was going to be too dark, but it looks fabulous. Very stylist and smart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calm and easy backdrop Works well as a strong neutral. Used London Stone on the panelling in our open plan space together with Shaded White on the walls. It's a busy room with lots going on from dawn to dusk, and we find London Stone a very unjarring backdrop to the madness that's our daily lives!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour and finish Got some advice from a F&B agent re turning my hallway from Plummet to London Stone and really like the result :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic colour for large spaces Our living room has high combed ceilings from when it used to be a single story cottage. The walls originally had magnolia on them, which washed everything out. I did not use a primer because I thought magnolia wouldn’t need one. Had to use three coats to get a proper coverage but the results are fantastic. Our room feels cozy and inviting while giving definition to the height of the space. The colour came out more grey/purplish in our living room, depending on how the light hits it. I used Joa’s White for the window alcoves and Dimity for the window trim. They’re all lovely! But F&B is so mega expensive, it makes me wonder why people buy it at when you can get the exact same colour mixed up at the B&Q paint counter for half the price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful Took 3 coats & to be honest could probably do with a fourth,shocking quality. F&B are being left behind by the competition.
