Which paint finish should I use?
For me I always plump for emulsion on the walls, because I’m obsessed with the super soft chalky matt finish. I knew that’s what I wanted when I was developing my own paint range, because you’re left with an almost strokable finish and what’s more I think it shows off the depth of the natural pigments best. I use eggshell everywhere else – doors, woodwork, radiators etc. Our eggshell has a very slight sheen to it, but it’s defnitely not super shiny. The effect of the sheen means that the light hits it differently so you’ll find a slight contrast in colours and it helps to pick out architectural details even though you’ve painted them in the same hue. Fabulous.
