The perfect bluish-grey shade. Unlike its namesake in the wild, our Hungry Hippo is always calm, collected and well-behaved. If you don’t want to rock the boat too much, mate it with white cabinets and trim, or if you prefer to stir things up, go with some strong, powerful colours.

Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have more questions.
What can I paint with paint from Klint?
Walls, ceilings, door trim, floor mouldings, picture ledges, closets etc. As long as the surface is stationary, dry and clean, there’s no reason why you can’t decorate with paint from Klint.
The only thing we suggest thinking twice about is using our paint on surfaces that are exposed to lots of wear and tear, such as kitchen or dining room tables, or to extreme moisture, such as in bathrooms with a shower. For this, you may need a more durable lacquer or moisture-resistant paint.
Feel free to contact us for advice on where to find these.
