Brinjal

No.222

A sophisticated aubergine

Brinjal takes its name from the beautifully deep and shiny skin of the aubergine, so it is particularly magnificent in Full Gloss. It can create a warm and highly sophisticated finish when used on all walls, but is more often used as a feature wall to enhance a neutral Skimming Stone scheme or as an accent on the underside of a bath or kitchen island. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones

Complementary white: Skimming Stone

Brinjal is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 59.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous paints at F&B Bought the Brinjal for a bathroom. Looks absolutely wonderful. Its a very warm and welcoming colour. Paint goes on with ease and hardly smells at all which is great as my husband has asthma.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A sophisticated colour We chose Brinjal to make a feature wall on.our chimney breast in the dining and music room. It is a perfect choice that changes throughout the day but at evening is rich, warm and classically voluptuous

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful warm rich welcoming colour My entrance hall used to always be painted F&B Downpipe grey. Which was fantastic however this time round I fancied making a change and decided eventually on Brinjal.Well I have to say I love it! It’s a very warm, rich and welcoming colour and gives real drama to the entrance hall. I think it’s my new favourite colour! It applied easily though I always use a brush not a roller as I find it provides a much better powder finish. I tied it in with pointing white ceilings and woodwork and the whole scheme pulled together really well. Using gold framed pictures also works really well for classical elegance.. Overall could not be happier with the finished result. Sorry about the photos being the wrong orientation they seem to turn 90 degrees every time I upload them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great color I used this in my bathroom which is quite small , despite the old rule of not using dark colors in small spaces, it looks fab with grey wall tiles and white bathroom suite. I have found a great art deco mirror and put some plants behind the bath which Brinjal really sets off well. Highly recommend using these more dramatic colors. My only problem is its a bit tricky to avoid brush marks so stick to leaving it to dry properly before applying another coat and be prepared to do 2 or 3 to get a good finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Front door After much hesitation, I'm really happy with the choice of this colour. Elegant, yet warm and modern. Also loved the advice I received in the shop. Will definitely use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brinjal has brought our bathroom to life Painted our downstairs bathroom in Brinjal and very happy with the results. It has taken a good 3-4 coats to give it the right coverage but looks amazing now. It was a dull cream before now it has character! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It has created a room full of caricature. I am glad I chose this colour for my bedroom walls, I was not disappointed. It worked well with skimming stone on the woodwork. I used gold, orange/copper and strong pink as accent colours, creating a rich, luxurious, warm feeling. :)
