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 302.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Transformed our kitchen Just moved house and the kitchen we inherited was nice in style but just not the colour we wanted. Had a quote to have the kitchen sprayed and it was extortionate. I thought I'd have a look at the modern eggshell paint in Downpipe and have a go myself. The results are amazing, I am so impressed with how it looks, I had to use the dark tones primer first then two coats of the F&B Downpipe has truly transformed our kitchen costing less than £150. The walls have been painted in cornforth white also by F&B and the two colours go together perfectly. I have already recommended to family and friends who have considered buying a new kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I'm so thrilled with the colour, it's exactly as shown and described. It looks stunning on my door frames and I am planning to do all skirting boards in this paint too. The quality of the paint is very good and it only took 2 coats which is refreshing as some paints have taken me 5 coats this year. I will definitely purchase more :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect paint! We only ever use Farrow & Ball paints as they are such good quality. The pigments are strong and the colour true to the shade card. I acknowledge that they are expensive but I think that I use less due to the density of the pigments, so overall they are worth the extra cost. I order online and they usually arrive the next day, brilliant service.
