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 95.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice colour but not exactly grey This is a nice bright colour but has quite a blue/purple tinge to it so it’s not something I wanted. I can’t really give it a bad review for not being what I wanted because the quality of the paint and coverage is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous! Couldn't decide on Pale Powder, it looked very pretty in our porch which has plenty of light but in my daughters small bedroom it was a bit dull so we chose Dimpse and love it. I have blackened in my room and Dimpse is the next colour on the chart. As my daughters room is small we painted the ceiling and woodwork in the same color which looks fab and painted the floorboards in all white. Dimpse is very clean, slightly grey slightly blue and we have even noticed lavender in some lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, easy to apply. We used Dimpse in our bedroom. It’s perhaps a bit more blue than we expected but still a lovely fresh, clean colour. We used the light undercoat before painting with Dimpse, not sure if that was worth the effort as it was basically a thin white paint which we painted over a white wall. Might have been more useful if we were covering a darker wall. But I really like the Dimpse colour. Will probably switch to Ammonite or Dimity for our next room as don’t want too many rooms with a bluish tint.
