Estate Emulsion

A delicate white with a translucent, gossamer feel, this colour is named after the old Dorset term for a spider’s web.  

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 So Pleased The paint is a very soft white, I was expecting it to be more grey, I am glad it isn't. It goes really well as an accent color to the borrowed light walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glowing Iridescence Wevet literally glows as the sun sets and gives a room the feeling of being alive. Wevet is one of the F&B “special” colors in the palette, not replicable by competitors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect White I have this in every room. With F&B Railings and with Black. Perfect backdrop to wood and fabrics. A sophisticated white.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wevet. A Warming White. Been leaning toward whites with less yellow in them lately but Wevet has me rethinking that. It's a soft, warm toned white which cozies up a space without losing any sophistication. I may have to try this in a north facing room which tends to look cold in the winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbeatable product A gloss which is easy to apply dries quickly, washes out well, has negligible odour and a beautiful sheen. Amazing. That I can clean my brushes with soap and water is a revelation. We’ve t is a lovely calm white, it seems pure white without dazzling, calm and fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from How did I manage without this for so long I love this white and use it everywhere I once used pure brilliant white. It is clean and pure but not dazzling, calmer and as you say almost beyond noticing. I love the easy application, negligible odour, water based washability whilst marvelling at the ease of brush cleaning and yet durable finish created. The chemistry of colour and of this paint fascinates me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Prompt delivery but poor packaging Prompt delivery but poor packaging. I ordered several sample pots and one leaked in transit and went onto the other pots. The damaged pot was replaced promptly so no harm done.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pure white in all but name We were disappointed with Wevet, It looks like a standard white and our batch has no hint of grey. It is exactly the same colour as our pure white cornice. In no way does it resemble the colour on the website. I think we got a bad batch. We are huge fans of FB and usually love all the paints. Would have returned it however we had opened it and our decorator was due to start. Do not go by the website colour.
