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 156.

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 Beautiful finish! I’ve always loved this colour and finally got round to using it in my new house. It was my first Farrow and Ball paint and it won’t be the last. The texture and appearance of the walls are beautiful, we can’t stop looking at them and we have already had loads of compliments. Farrow and Ball paint is different to regular paint, it just is. I love the quality and I love the colour choice. Very very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour and lovely paint to use! Pigeon was the exact colour I had been looking for to bring our front door up to date. We're so pleased with the finished look and it was a lovely paint to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this colour so much!! I'm in love with this colour. I painted a dresser, a dressing table and a night table with the 750ml tin so a little goes a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour I was a bit naughty and didn’t buy a tester pot, but it didn’t disappoint. I used it as the bottom colour to split my hall way in half.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, fabulous paint, easy to apply. I am painting all the exterior doors on my Victorian house to cover a blue that I never really liked.I am familiar with F&B paints but had never used the gloss. It goes on beautifully and dries very quickly allowing me to apply an undercoat and a coat of gloss on the same day.I have applied two coats of gloss and a third on my front door. One thing I did change however was to paint the frame the same colour rather than white which looked too stark and seemed to spoil the effect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great colour for my front door i bought the primer (mid tones) and pigeon eggshell for my front door. after sanding the door, applying primer and three coats of paint i am very happy with it. i love f&b paints for the depth of colour and the texture of the paint in the tin. you just can’t get the same results with any other brand. would only ever use f&b paint in and outside of my house.
