A light grey, a pale grey, a softly-spoken grey. Dig deep and there are easygoing lilac undertones that make it one of our most soothing greys of the bunch. Pop it in a bedroom to sleep soundly.
Not all paints are created equal. Take ours, which combine genuine durability with washability, wipeability and a low VOC, water-based formula. Not only are they environmentally friendly, but they're free from animal testing and 100% vegan.
If we say so ourselves, they look pretty good too – and with a range of colours available in both matt and eggshell finishes, there are plenty of options to make your walls happy, too.
Our paint has a coverage of 10m2 to 12m2 per litre. Our paint calculator is set up to give you an estimate of how many cans of paint you’ll likely need in order to cover your space with at least two coats, based on common room sizes.
Whoever said Lick is just for walls? Not us, that's for sure. All of our paint is multi-surface, meaning it can be used on pretty much any indoor surface, such as:
- Wooden furniture
- (Exterior) doors
- Laminate (requires prep)
- MDF (requires prep)

Matt vs Eggshell
When choosing between matt and eggshell, you're best looking at traffic. Not outside, but in and through the room itself – while our multi-surface matt is super durable and wipeable, eggshell is extra resistant to fading and staining, making it perfect for kitchens, bathrooms and kid-busy zones.
As for style, matt is more muted and, well... matte, while eggshell has a noticeable soft gloss – it's sheen-y, not shiny.

What is low VOC?
VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compound, the nasty stuff in cleaning products that are exactly as bad for you as it sounds. VOCs can cause a host of respiratory problems and even be carcinogenic, which is why you shouldn't have it on your walls. We take extra care to formulate our paint to be low VOC and low odour, because we strongly believe that everyone should be limiting their exposure to VOCs
We're on a mission to create a world of VOC-free decorating, with readily available, eco-friendly paint in a range of easy to use colour palettes. Find out more about VOCs, and the benefits of using paint without them, here.
How do I decorate? It's a broad question, but one we've got the answer to – in a series of 'how to' guides for decorators at any skill level, from first-time DIY-ers to seasoned grand designers.
