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 74.

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.

Customer Reviews 
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the colour I love the subtlety of this colour - veering from green to grey according to the light. I have mixed it with pink roses and cream fabric and the result is delightful.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent colour not great coverage Farrow and Ball are fantastic for colours and this pigeon one is stunning. Couldn't have picked a better colour from anywhere else for my external wood frames. However, coverage isn't great, 2 coats never enough to my eye and 3 sometimes not totally perfect but how far do you go? Did have good quality primer, undercoat on as well. Considering the cost feel this should have been better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless classic Used this on the panelling in our snug. Complemented with Cornforth White on the walls. Accents of petrol blue and turquoise printed fabric, looks fab, initially thought it was too dark (compared to previous colour it was a huge change) but now I love it. To me it’s a green-grey colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like colours like this one I like colours like this one, when you can't really tell is it grey is it blue or maybe even green :) It took me a while to paint all of my old kitchen cabinets, because I needed to paint with primer first and then 3 coats of paint. But it was worth it, I am really happy now, because my kitchen looks much better. This colour is really great if you want to create that vintage/retro/shaker style. It was the first time I painted furniture, but all my friends think that they look like new from the factory, so I would highly recommend it, because it is really easy to use. Just keep in mind that it dries really quickly, so If you want to achieve the best results you need to do it fast :D Thank you for wonderful product and service ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasing Result It's hard to choose colours without testing first, but I didn't have time, so after viewing many of the user images on the F&B website and Google in general I decided to just go for it, and what a pleasant surprise. Personally I feel it's a warm muted green. Had a mild panic that it would be too dark, but the room is well lit and once dried the colour settled and in fact feels very grown up. The woodwork has been done in Pointing and the result is most pleasing.
