Down Pipe

No.26

A dramatic lead grey

Down Pipe, a dark lead grey, has definite blue undertones to it which deepen the complexity of the finish. Originally inspired by the colour used to paint downpipes and guttering, it has been embraced for use inside the home with fanatical zeal! This daringly dark hue is fabulous as a background to art, and extremely effective for use in halls to create a deeply dramatic entrance to the home. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Dimpse

Down Pipe is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 374.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

Our paint colours are available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Downpipe! I had been wanting to go dark and bold in our living room for a while and after trying several colours, plumped for Downpipe. As always, the paint was a dream to work with and the results are amazing - the colour has completely transformed the room, I love it so much! I did need 3 coats to get the best result but I find this to always be the case with dark colours. I paired it with strong white eggshell on the woodwork, which is a beautiful combination. Delivery was also very quick - received it within 48 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful color, easy application We were looking for a nice gray and fell in love with this shade after ordering a sample. We also ordered the recommended primer to ensure nice rich color. Were extremely impressed with the application - definitely not pro painters and were able to get our accent wall (primer + 2 coats) done in one day with no streaks.
