Key features

Very matt  

Very matt  

Casein Distemper offers a very flat matt finish with a breathable, permeable structure. 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-based plaster

For interior lime-based plaster

A traditional specialist finish formulated for use on interior lime-based plaster walls and ceilings in low traffic areas. 

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

Carefully sourced casein resins with unique open polymers let moisture pass through this flat matt finish, allowing interior plaster walls and ceiling to breathe. 

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect pink I’m very happy with this colour for our spare room. It’s quite a dark room with lots of wood as it’s a period house. It really suits without being too pink!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pink Ground Reception Hall I wanted a warm, subtle peachy pink for our reception hall that would work with a light pink velvet chair and a red/blue/green rug. And be neutral enough to also go with a turquoise blue velvet sofa. Not too saccharine, or lilac, not too dark (for the low, beamed ceilings in our old house). Pink Ground is a wonderful colour which glows at certain times of the day. A bit like a pink sky. Our kitchen and smaller hall are the lighter shell pink Tailor Tack, so the flow is good from room to room. I used Tailor Tack on the radiator as the pink ground radiator paint came up slightly more browny. Woodwork is Wimborne White.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful color We chose this color to paint our daughter's room. Easy paint to work with and turned out beautifully!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lovely fresh and earthy pink. I've almost finished decorating my living room, it's a north-east facing room so it gets morning sun. I had watched many farrow and ball videos on Instagram trying to get some inspiration and Pink Ground was one that was recommended for morning light. I'm really not a pink person and had to trust the process when it came to doing it, I decided on doing something a little bit different as I didn't think pink walls would be right for me. So I put it on the ceiling, from the picture rail up and I'm so pleased with how it's turned out, it's a really nice colour. Not too pink, it's more a dusky, earthy pink and I love it ❤️

Rated 3 out of 5 by from peach rather than pink i bought a tester of this and it was much pinker than the modern emulsion - looked like a different colour, very peachy. still quite pretty but not what i wanted
