Down Pipe

No.26

A dramatic lead grey

Down Pipe, a dark lead grey, has definite blue undertones to it which deepen the complexity of the finish. Originally inspired by the colour used to paint downpipes and guttering, it has been embraced for use inside the home with fanatical zeal! This daringly dark hue is fabulous as a background to art, and extremely effective for use in halls to create a deeply dramatic entrance to the home. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Dimpse

Down Pipe is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 371.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful color, easy application We were looking for a nice gray and fell in love with this shade after ordering a sample. We also ordered the recommended primer to ensure nice rich color. Were extremely impressed with the application - definitely not pro painters and were able to get our accent wall (primer + 2 coats) done in one day with no streaks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my bathroom I delayed a dark colour and then took the plunge and it came out perfect. Downpipe is a dark share of grey with green blue tinge. It’s just so classic.
