The first room I ever saw in duck egg had an appearance so soft that the objects displayed on it seemed to nestle in it as though on a bed of down. I have tried to keep this quality in our shade by going easy on the pigment loading to preserve the colour’s delicacy. It is a colour that works amazingly well – in formal and informal rooms. Our natural paints have a lightness of touch on nature’s biodiversity which means our business does not cost the earth. Duck Egg reminds us just how fragile the earth’s resources are.
I very deliberately picked a soft colour palette, Swedish blues, greys, lavender, ivory, mauve and used paints with a chalky, almost distemper-like quality, as they have a restful effect. Edward Bulmer has a lovely range ; we used the Duck Egg in our sitting room.

To use this simple tool please add together the total wall lengths, so the parameter of the room which is the width measurement, then just one height measurement. This amount is based on coverage in 2 coats.
As a rough guide, 1 L of eggshell will cover 2-3 doors (both sides) and 1 L of eggshell will cover 20 metres of skirting board in min. 2 coats.
