Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful period colour Down Pipe is one of the jewels in the crown of the Farrow & Ball range. A colour that continues to morph with trends from being ultra functional to uber-hip. If you're looking for the perfect grey that's dark and sultry without sucking the life from a room then this is the one!! It looks at it's absolute best when blessed with plenty of natural light, so think carefully about the location where it is to be applied. Down pipe could also look rather sombre all on it's own, so I would recommend that it is paired with either pale or bright colours. Our scheme was comprised of Lamp Room Gray, Ammonite, Wimborne White and of course Down Pipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeded expectations. I used down pipe modern emulsion on practically all of my walls in my barn conversion and winborne white on the ceilings. The space is west facing with a few sky lights here and there with no south facing windows at all so I decide to embrace the darkness instead of fighting it. I was pretty worried when I started painting the dark undertones as it seemed to be drawing what little light exist into oblivion but once I applied the down pipe and let it dry all of my fears vanished. The space somehow feels bigger, brighter and warmer. The depth of colour is amazing and it really makes other colours against it pop! I really never imagined I'd be so excited by a lick of paint but there you have it!
