A big thanks to all at customer service for their invaluable advice. November 1, 2014
Love it! Such a lovely soft pink and perfect for my feature wall with Pointing. Love it! October 9, 2014
Excellent quality paint as a regular user of Farrow & Ball paint ( usually White's or Creams) I tried Calamine for some Childrens bedroom furniture and again I am more than happy with the results. Lovely finish, would Highly Recommend this product!! September 14, 2014
Baby girl's room- perfect! Used in my baby girl's room with 'cinder rose' on the woodwork. Gorgeous chalky marshmallowy finish on the walls- feels tranquil, light, classy- not too sickly sweet! Love it! August 26, 2014
Beautiful paint Beautiful colour, worth the money and the first time we have used exterior masonry paint from Farrow and Ball and would never use another product again. Great finish, great colour and the exact correct shade of pink. Love it August 5, 2014
A grown-up girl's pink Used this colour to paint the walls and ceiling of a south facing bedroom that is shaded by trees. I was looking for a subtle pink that would feel grown-up and sophisticated and Calamine has delivered on that. When I first put a sample of the wall it looked lilac but having painted the whole room it is definitely pink but has a grey tone that makes it perfect for what I wanted. July 20, 2014
the perfect paint for my kitchen Used this colour in my kitchen 6 years ago and just bought more to repaint. I absolutely love the colour and the quality is great. Easy to apply, with a lovely matt finish. Great quality, easy to clean. I always buy modern emulsion and have bought lots of different colours for my house renovation. Only moan is the delivery company F&B use as most of the tins have arrived dented, some have had to be replaced but next tins also had dented lids but I decided to use them as needed to get on. F&B were very helpful when I complained. May 5, 2014
Lovely subtle colour This colour is perfect in our little girls playroom, not too 'girly pink'! April 12, 2014
