Pigeon

No.25

A strong blue grey

This cosy and nostalgic blue grey is named after the colour of the bird often sighted around the London landscape. Softer and bluer than more contemporary grey shades like Mole's Breath, Pigeon is particularly suited for use in boot rooms, cloakrooms or darker spaces like studies and panelled rooms. It is also incredibly popular on kitchen islands with the more delicate Dimpse on units. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Shaded White

Pigeon is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 89.

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.


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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous depth We bought this after much deliberation for our living room. I can say we were not disappointed! I’m so happy with how the colour turned out; green but with a grey tinge that makes it almost eucalyptus. We ended up having quite a bit left over, and decided to use it in our bathroom too. Just as pretty but very different! Would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour Used for front door. Stylish, elegant, sophisticated and modern. To be expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely blue green colour I decided to go bold in our "winter" sitting room, as I wanted it to be different to the rest of the house, which is all painted white, and I wanted it to definitely be dark on the walls, to make it a more cosy-feeling room. I really love it! It looks like a fairly dark blue colour, but with green tones to it. But then in some lights it can look almost khaki green, and then in the evenings it almost looks like a charcoal colour. It's made our sitting room look and feel like a snug now, which is exactly what I was after.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Striking colour Redecorated our master bedroom with the Estate emulsion in Pigeon and we are really pleased with the result. As usual the paint went on well after 2 coats it was looking good but a 3rd coat just made it perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recess my garage door What a great colour, my double garage door was a prominent feature which I disliked. Pigeon was just the right colour to make the door recede and be less obvious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely to use I have recently repainted an old pine bookcase in Pigeon Estate (20% sheen), with off-white shelves and detailing. I am delighted with the colour and quality of the paint. It's such a pleasure to use and looks great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour Bought a sample and pondered for a few weeks, wondering if it was too dark however I am delighted with the colour; a proper smoky green, just what I’ve been after for ages.
