Pelt

No.254

A deliciously deep purple

This deep and luxurious purple has a regal feel and derives its name from untreated animal hides. Much bluer in feel than the similarly strong Brinjal, Pelt can appear almost black in darker spaces and is particularly sensational in Full Gloss. Pair with Brassica to create a dark and moody scheme or soften with the feminine shades of Middleton Pink and Great White. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones 

Complementary white: Great White

Pelt is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 47.

Product Information 
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 132 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great colour of many coats Pelt is a sumptuous colour. You expect to smell blueberries and blackberries when you open the tin. Given the alternatives, it was the only choice I could have made and I’m glad I did. The only niggle - and I know people will say that it’s what you get with a deep colour, but I’ve seen it with other F&B paint colours too, is that it needs at least 3 coats to get the full faultless colour on the wall. I was using some Laura Ashley paint in the room too and that was almost there after one! Like i said, I’m glad I went for the Pelt and I’m very happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful rich colour Beautiful rich regal colour, lovely to apply as with all F&B paints. Used with the dark tones undercoat, which is highly recommended and the finish is exquisite , warm, rich and a plush finish that has transformed an old piano stool and a bathroom cabinet .........very happy with the result .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely but not for me The sample looked fabulous but when we painted an entire wall it was just too purple for my taste. Have now repainted in Downpipe which suits the room much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No other colour compares with this one. We originally painted the 12'x8' feature wall 5 years ago. Each Christmas we touch up any scuffs or marks. It blends perfectly and with a quick flick of the brush it looks immaculate again. It has become a bit of a Christmas tradition! About to paint the chimney with the same colour, from the original pot of paint. It may seem expensive to spend £40+ on a pot of paint but not only is this a stunning colour we love, it still looks great. Great value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good but prone to marks Colour is delicious and soothing for such a dark colour. Goes on very easily and good coverage. However easy to see greasy marks on it (handprints for example, from clean hands) so would not get estate emulsion again

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour Used this to paint my kitchen cupboard doors and the finish is incredible and the colour stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A rich deep colour I have come late to the idea of using really dark colours on my walls, wondering if they would simply make the house look gloomy. I was quite stunned when I painted my landing with this colour and did worry that I’d hate it after a few days. So far, so good! It works well with stripped floorboards and mustard yellow accessories. It does seem to mark quite easily for example when hanging pictures and I’ve had to re-touch a couple of areas.
