Railings

No.31

A soft black with blue undertones

More blue than black, Railings is a softer alternative to black which is particularly suited to the ironwork it takes its name from. When used in Full Gloss on front doors it creates a handsome and commanding entrance, but becomes much more relaxed in feel in our Estate Eggshell finish. The bluer undertones of this dark hue transform rooms into dramatic and enveloping interior spaces. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Ammonite

Railings is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 325.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern Emulsion Railings Bought this recently to paint the snug. Have admired this colour on Instagram/Pinterest but it’s far better in person. Really happy with its application and the final result is perfect. Great in different lights, and gives a great feel when watching a movie at night.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb interior door paint Bought to paint all my interior doors. It hasn't really brought that wow factor to my decor schemes, and works beautifully with blues, browns and bright ochre. Recommended.
