Not the suede, but i have used RL deep red. Most on here will tell you that RL paint sucks. I have had good results the few times i used them. The only time i ever have used them was when HO's bought it.

Yes, We have used it, and I have one word for you - DON"T! It's very difficult to work with. You have to roll the first coat or two, then hand brush the final coat with at least a 4" brush in a cross hatch type pattern. On one wall, it's hard, by the time you do a full room you'll be exhausted, trust me.

We did 4 rooms with 12' ceilings all walls AND ceilings. The job turned out pretty cool until.... the contractor had to move a couple of outlets- walls had to be patched and touched up in every room and guess what? IT DOES NOT touch up. Horrible, ugly looking touch ups, even with the same paint, in the same manner of application by the same artisan. It does not blend- At All.

Lastly, because of the nature of the plastic microspheres in it (the product that gives it the suede effect), it collects dust and dirt quickly. You brush up against it and it leaves a dust mark that can't be cleaned properly.

Please save yourself a lot of headaches- use a different product...

Love all Ralph Lauren paints


I've used nearly every type of Ralph Lauren paint and loved the sued paint for accent walls. Their regular satin paint has a rich deep color no matter which color you use.

Problem: can't find it anywhere. I want to refresh a suede wall that has sustained a number of changes after being painted for about 10 years. Can't find the paint in any local store and getting the color matched won't help with the sued texture. Anyone who knows where to get the paint, your help would be most appreciated.

Ralph Lauren is sold through Independent paint dealers in the United States. Go to the Ralph Lauren paint site, and utilize the locater to find a dealer near you.

Hey Sandyman,

When was the last time you did an absolutely perfect job the first time at something you have never done before? Because that’s exactly what you will have to do. There is no going back, no touch-up. You must do it perfectly the first time, because you won’t get a second chance. You can’t touch it without leaving a mark. RL products are very deceiving, their instructions tell you one thing but in reality you are forced to apply it in a totally different way. If I was Ralph, I wouldn’t want my name associated with that garbage.

The concept is beautiful the reality is something else.

If you read the whole tread the one thing that seems consistent is you can't refresh it or touch it up.

I agree 100% with this statement. It is extremely frustrating to work with for a professional, let alone a diy'er.
