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 177.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Front door We used the gloss exterior finish for the front door. Went on really well but needed 3 coats plus the undercoat. Fantastic colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with the colour I bought Downpipe as a feature colour for a small lounge, the colour to me looks like a deep blue grey and I've had lots of compliments on it so far. Very happy with the colour (3 coats).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Internal furniture I’d resisted the grey fad until now. The Down pipe was a perfect face lift for a tired wooden side cabinet. And the rollered finish is flawless
