Gainsborough Wash

Interior paint for walls & ceilings

Regular price £24.00

Sometimes you don't want the walls of your room to be the main focal point, instead they should be the perfect accompaniment. This is where Gainsborough Wash is ideal. Without having to use a bland 'me too' magnolia, it provides a calming, neutral backdrop that allows your accent colours and choice of furniture and accessories to take centre stage. It is a fabulous sophisticated colour that is a gorgeous blend of soft yellow, dirty beige and a hint of grey.

  • 100% VOC-free and odourless
  • Pigment rich for a beautiful finish
  • Antibacterial protection

great neutral colour

We used Gainsborough Wash in the bedroom and found the colour goes with just about anything. It’s neutral without being boring. It looks especially good next to our natural colour wood floors. We were worried the eggshell finish would show up the imperfections on our less than perfect walls, but not so. Get a sample! Glad we did, it's impossible to match colour from a computer screen.

Excellent quality paint

Great quality paint and zero VOC which is brilliant. However I would say this is not like magnolia at all as per the description suggests, it is a definite green colour. Which luckily I love but it is a very pale green.

Best Emulsion Ever

I purchased this product as its 100% odour free due to my wife having allergies. But also its environment friendly. The finish on my walls are excellent and I would strongly recommend this product. Will certainly be buying the gloss to do my woodwork.

Early days - Update

My property is usually rented out to students who tend to dry their clothes on the radiators, which leads to the formation of mould throughout the property. After using the Gainsborough Wash and waiting over a year to determine how effective the paint is against mould, I can confirm that the mould has been completely eliminated which I consider as job done. However, the Gainsborough Wash is documented on Little Knight’s website and colour samples as being the nearest colour to Magnolia, unfortunately it is a shade of green rather than yellow.

Hi, thanks for the review, and we look forward to hearing from you when you have had longer to asses the paint's performance.

Lovely shade

A lovely shade, although greener than anticipated. Flexes in different lighting. Going to order for my living room.
