Limewash is Farrow and Ball's highly breathable specialist finish suited to the interior or exterior walls and ceilings of traditional and historic buildings, available in 77 of their colours. This paint bonds itself to the underlying layer and becomes part of the building itself. Limewash is a sympathetic finish that allows traditional walls and ceilings to ‘breathe’. When using this finish, we recommend that you speak to a painter or decorator as specialist knowledge is needed for application.
