Plummett

No.272

A lighter lead

This strong architectural grey is named after the lead often used by fishermen to weight their lines. Plummett intensifies in colour in smaller spaces and has a strikingly modern feel which is conducive to minimal living. Used as much on woodwork to define dramatic spaces as it is on walls, Plummett is one of our most hard-edged and industrial feeling greys. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Ammonite

Plummett is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 54.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Total transformation Delighted with how this paint and colour gave new life with a very authentic old house feel to our newly refurbished hallway

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage, love the colour We decided to renovate the hallway. So after the walls were skimmed we decided that we wanted a dramatic colour. This certainly fit the brief, it’s so rich looking we are really pleased with it. A 5 litre tin covered the entire hallway with two coats no bother and there is even enough spare for any scrape the walls may get. Absolutely love it against the crisp white woodwork.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best paint ever! I have used so many paints in my lifetime, and I can honestly say F&B paints are the best! The richness of their colors, they way the paint glides over a surface, not to mention the staying power and the saturation levels..bar none!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Front door The plummet looks great against are stone work and silvered oak! It has totally transformed the heavily Oak stained door! A small tin of eggshell was more than enough to do the outside.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this paint and primer a month ago and I thought the paint was expensive. I was wrong it was worth every penny and totally transformed my old and dreary kitchen. You would need to be mad to shop elsewhere.
