Dimity

No.2008

A very pale taupe

Dimity is named after the lightweight cotton fabric originally used to make ladies’ bustles, but which is now more commonly used for bedding. One of our Red Based Neutrals, this pale and subdued taupe is brimming with warmth and an unmatchable depth, making it perfect for elegant and understated hallways. It can be combined with All White and Pointing to read pinker, or with the darker Oxford Stone on woodwork for a slightly aged look and relaxed feel. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: Pointing

Dimity is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 88.

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

Every one of our paint colours is 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adore this colour!! I have used dimity on woodwork in my kitchen where it is very light. It looks like a creamy white, and I have also used it on the walls in my bedroom which is north facing and it quite dark and it has more of a peachy/creamy look. I have used it alongside Mizzle in the kitchen and London Stone in the bedroom and it complements both. It has red pigments in and I think you can tell. Gorgeous colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality This is the second time I have used the water-based external gloss, the first time was on a set of south facing bi-fold doors, the results were excellent and still are two years on. I would advise do not paint in bright sunlight and high temperatures as the paint dries very quickly. if using over a large area use a mini roller to get an excellent finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, warm colour Please use images of more pleasant rooms on your website. Most photos seem to have been taken in very old buildings, with uneven walls and ceilings. It has become tiresome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent all rounder! We ended up choosing Dimity for several rooms because it seems to always reflect light in a good way. It's sometimes warm with the slightest hint of pink, sometimes cool and refreshing, reflecting the green of the garden, but always a neutral - - something I cannot describe. We love this paint as it always shades our rooms to suit the day and the evening superbly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a brilliant product! Despite being a little more expensive than some paints, it is worth every penny. So easy to apply and excellent finish. I would definitely recommend to others.
