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 4.4 out of 5 by 105.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality product I love the quality of F&B paint, I purchased the sample pot to ensure I was happy with the colour and have since bought 5ltrs of the Modern emulsion in Dimpse, beautiful. Easy to work with and great coverage. Modern emulsion is exactly that a nice flat finish but durable and wipeable. You get what you pay for.
