The Ultimate Chalky Paint Finish By Little Greene

Little Greene Absolute Matt Emulsion

Looking to spruce up your home? Try the ultimate chalky paint finish from Little Greene: Absolute Matt Emulsion 

Little Greene has built up a well-deserved reputation for not just its imaginative colour palette but also for the outstanding quality of its paints. Its original finish, Absolute Matt Emulsion, is more popular than ever and appears to be the choice of Lockdown DIY enthusiasts. And it’s not hard to see why…

The last word in flat, matt paints, with a ‘barely-there’ low-sheen of only 3%, Absolute Matt Emulsion produces the sublime chalky finish, often referred to as ‘dead matt’.

This glorious, environmentally-friendly finish provides a more luxurious option to its Intelligent Matt cousin (which was formulated specifically to withstand the rough and tumble of busy households). However, thanks to the expertise of the Little Greene technical team, Absolute Matt Emulsion is nonetheless wipeable, so not just beautiful but practical too.

Sophisticated, understated and supremely elegant, Absolute Matt Emulsion can be used on many different surfaces including walls, ceilings and plaster work. It offers the perfect choice for a bedroom, living room or study – indeed any area of low traffic where the desired effect is an unequivocally beautiful result.

Being water-based, Absolute Matt Emulsion is quick-drying (two to four hours) and virtually odourless. Its superb coverage means that it is high in opacity, efficient, economical and easy to apply with minimal disruption; a room can easily be decorated in a day, meaning your home can, quite literally, be transformed from one day to the next.

Containing zero added VOCs, Absolute Matt Emulsion is kind to the environment, pet-friendly and, with child-safe certification under BS EN71-3:2019 (Toy Paint Regulations), it is also completely safe to use in children’s rooms, making it a very smart choice for the family home.

Absolute Matt Emulsion is available in all shades in the Little Greene colour palette. Superb in all hues, it appears especially rich and sumptuous in darker shades, such as Obsidian Green, Basalt and Lamp Black, as its flat matt finish affords a real depth to the colour due to the subtle texture of its chalky surface.

Available at 500 nationwide stockists and their London showrooms in Marylebone, Notting Hill and Chelsea. Also purchase via mail, phone or online at
