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 94.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dimity Modern Emulsion Just decorated my bathroom with this and it looks lovely. A really easy paint to use with a lovely even colour. I would add that I've been using your paints for years and I've never been disappointed so it goes without saying that I'm a big fan of your products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good colour match Bought a sample pot to patch a mark in a room we decorated two years ago. Excellent match indicating good colour consistency.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicate, calming beigey-pink bedroom This colour is very subtle but changes in the light. It is essentially a pale beige with with pink undertones, so in some lights it can look like the very gentlest of pinks. I chose it for my north-facing bedroom which always felt a bit drab and gray with "Pointing" on the walls. Dimity has introduced a lovely warmth to the room. This paint perfectly compliments my vintage floral and bird curtains and I could not be more pleased with the colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovey paint and great service We bought a few tins to paint our house. The paints go on so well and you don’t need much for full coverage. We really liked the modern emulsion.

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.
