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 82.

Product Information 
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 132 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Paint I have used this paint in two houses now and with small kids it is invaluable. It is easy to repaint and touch up areas that get grubby little hand traffic. When dry it is nearly impossible to see new paintwork as the old paint hasnt faded. great coverage and usually only one coat needed. Value for money is a bit of an issue as it is a lot to pay for a pot of paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from soft but light hints of pink but changes depending on the time of day and light. Although light it gives a cosy feel for the bedroom

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen transformed with Farrow & Ball paint We relaid our floor with LVT and was looking for a matching colour for the kitchen cupboards. Oxford Stone was perfect. We then wanted a warm off white for the skirting boards and kitchen doors, Dimity was perfect. Both paints are quality compared to cheaper brands we tried in the past. Both were easy to apply and have proved to be durable in a busy part of the bungalow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from F&B - what’s not to like? The Dimity has similar properties to Wimborne White in that it seems to be almost luminous, giving the room a glow, reflecting the light. Our decorator, who hadn’t use this colour before, was as impressed as ever with the finish and, once more gave me top marks for choosing such an excellent colour pallet ( Wimborne White ceiling [estate emulsion], Joa’s White below dado rail [estate emulsion], Joa’s White [eggshell] on the dado rail, Dimity above the dado rail [estate emulsion]). The room is transformed! A calm, cool in summer, warm in winter, haven of peace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an amazing product!!! Our decorator of 20 years was old school insisting went for an oil based product for the external painting all our sash windows. We insisted on F&B as we have used it in most places inside and it’s a great product. Once he started painting he was very impressed with the coverage, depth of colour and how quick it dried. He completed all the work in 3 very full days and every window had 3 coats. Normally this would be a full week. House looks amazing. Had great comments from passers by and decorator converted to F&B external eggshell paint. A great result all round. My advice. Yes you can buy cheaper paint and get it matched and to confess I have done this in one room internally but it never quite has the depth of colour and ease of application. Never again it’s false economy Great product, fantastic range of colours. Just hope it does what it says on the tin quoting a 6 year guarantee. Time will tell.
