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 81.

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. For further information about our products, including guidance on safe use and application, click here to view our advice pages.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous colour! This is the best paint I have ever used. It went on really well and I probably could have gotten away with one coat, however, the lady at Farrow and Ball informed me that to give it the necessary outdoor protection then two coats are necessary. I love the colour which is a beautiful sage green that is a touch more grey than French Grey. It looks very sophisticated and looks great with black door handles. Really pleased! Thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect update All my exterior doors had been "Lichen" for several years, (with off white on the windows & door surrounds), & although only a subtle difference, "pigeon" looks fantastic against the old stone (paired with shaded white). Really pleased as always with the depth of colour & finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the colour I love our new wardrobe door in De Nimes... funnily enough it will hold a large amount of denim... !! Is perfect. We're going to use it on the inside now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent finish The colour was recommended by an F&B consultant and it is perfect for a country cottage look. With the undercoat and layers it has a great depth of finish which look fabulous. Very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely calming colour for a utility room This is an excellent colour that fits the room perfectly. It took the painters 3 coats to make sure it was fully covered. We used a 2.5 litre tin of modern emulsion.
