Suggested Clove palettes
This versatile colour will work well with many shades from our edited collection, but we do have a few favourite combinations. Silver Birch and Driftwood are neutrals which match Clove’s balance of warm and cool; Old Rose and Moss will keep the space feeling light and open against Clove’s more grounding, enveloping tones; and finally, Olive and Mustard will bring an abundance of English charm.
The finishesLike all our paints, Clove is available as matt emulsion or eggshell with a fast touch-dry time of between one to two hours. The emulsion is shine free and gives walls a velvety look. And the eggshell is like its namesake – there’s just a hint of sheen. Both are water based so all you’ll need to clean your brushes (and yourself!) is warm water and a little soap.
How to use it – emulsionMatt emulsion is generally best for walls as the flat finish blurs any imperfections in the plaster. It’s not quite as tough as eggshell, which is why that’s the preferred option for woodwork, but there’s nothing to say you can’t use matt emulsion for these areas if you’re after a chalky character.

Need to know
- When painting a space where humidity and temperatures fluctuate, drying times may be longer.
- We recommend purchasing as much paint as you need in one go so it’s from the same batch and keep some spare for touch-ups.
- Colours may vary slightly with each pot – once open, stir thoroughly to ensure the paint is well mixed.
- Recycle the metal tin and plastic handle separately at home.
- In high traffic areas, eggshell is more durable.
