Finish: Absolute Matt Emulsion

I tried so many different shades from several different paint companies but Little Greene's Hicks Blue was the perfect choice once I'd found it. There's such depth to the colour and it looks great against our white kitchen cupboards and oak floor. Easy application of paint and only required 2 coats. Have bought more Little Greene paint since
