Outstanding finish I bought this for our newly built dining room, and loved it so much that I followed it through in to my kitchen....It looks so fantastic, and would definitely recommend 100% August 18, 2014
simply gorgeous colour Bought this for my bathroom woodwork,bit worried as have always used white,looks amazing! July 14, 2014
Exceptional colour depth and the perfect backdrop for modern and traditional art work. After extensive colour trials I selected 'Cats Paw' Modern Emulsion for my north facing kitchen. This is the second time I have worked with the modern emulsion paint range and the colour and ease of coverage is quite exceptional. Initially sceptical that this paint type would not reflect the same depth of colour or integrity of the Estate Emulsions I have been pleasantly convinced it has equal value especially in steam filled bathrooms and high traffic kitchens! The colour Cats Paw is not too yellow toned nor neutral yet blends well with the light and dark woods of my beech and walnut kitchen units. This colour looks warm yet not overwhelming in artificial light. Highly recommended - keep painting the colour will recess when all walls are completed. It is the most perfect backdrop for modern and traditional art work. August 18, 2013
full gloss ceiling I used this in full gloss on a coffered ceiling with the beams painted white. It looks stunning. May 27, 2013
Excellent coverage and application. Smooth application with excellent coverage and a deep lustre to the final finish. Superb quality paint and reassuringly expensive! March 25, 2013
Love this color!! Cats Paw is so beautiful! I put it in a study and it looks like suede walls! The depth of color and texture are amazing. January 8, 2013

Stronger in colour than its counterparts String and Cord, this is a good yellow-based neutral. Try alongside darker reds and warm blues. Mid Tones Undercoat.
