Dimpse

No.277

A cool and delicate grey

Dimpse is a delicate grey named after the quaint West Country dialect for the colour of twilight and is one of our cooler Architectural Neutrals. Sitting between Pavilion Gray and Blackened, its subtle blue undertones work particularly well in modern architectural spaces. Brush onto kitchen units alongside a Down Pipe island for a clean finish that is conducive to minimal living. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: All White

Dimpse is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 73.

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 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 elegantly refined colour, lovely finish We've just painted out bedroom in this colour. We are thrilled with the finish - it is the perfect shade of grey: a refined elegant shade, that is also fresh and delicate. Perfect coverage. We've done it with white paint on our wood and looks fab.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Finish! Lovely paint: east to apply, good coverage and a premium, matt finish. Ordering was simple and delivery was quick. Great product; great service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It comes into its own after the second coat Painted my kitchen walls and an adjacent small hall with Dimpse. After the first coat of paint, I was concerned. While it dried, I was more concerned. Once it was dry, things improved. After I painted the second coat, things became absolutely lovely. I find this to be a gray that leans (pleasantly) lavendar in certain lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! " I have used this in a hall, landing and stairway that doesn't have much light. It is a definate grey but really warm and has actually brightened up the area and increased the light (it was previously a cream/magnolia colour). Very pleased with the outcome, just what I wanted and as usual the paint quality gives a great finish

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Grey! I have used Dimpse in estate emulsion. As usual the paint is amazing quality with excellent coverage. Dimpse works perfectly as a bluey/grey background to my painted sideboard in Lamp Room Gray. It’s a very soothing and relaxing shade and works well with both light or dark wood. Soft furnishings of dark greys, black, white/creams, pink/purples will all look beautiful with Dimpse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Quality Paint Having used F & B paints, Eggshell, Masonry and Emulsion for several years. We will not use anything else. They are easy to apply, have great coverage and Re hard wearing. Dimpse is just another favourite colour for us and looks great on our interior doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful subtle colour Used Dimpse in modern emulsion in my new bathroom to complement my blue-green tiles. i wanted a cool grey with a subtle blue hint but not as cold as pavilion grey. This was perfect.
