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 263.

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for warehouse windows Fantastic colour - exactly what we wanted, along with the all in one primer and undercoat and all environmentally friendly, so guilt free. Bought it in dead flat, so no shiny gloss and made for metal. Bathroom done - now onto the bedroom. TIP: do not use cheap masking tape when painting or you will be scraping off residue from windows with washing up liquid//removing the paintwork. Pay extra for good quality tape for clean lines and easy removal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There is only F and B The paint is fabulous. I would never use anything else. I love modern emulsion. It covered all of my walls which were yellow from the previous owners smoking in just two coats. No undercoat needed and lasts for years. I'm using it in my new home too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour Bought this paint for my external window frames and doors. As always the quality is excellent and the colour a lovely deep dark grey/blue. Needs 2 coats at least but the finish is lovely. I always by Farrow and Ball paint as you can be assured that it will look good on and the colours are really nice and true.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good!! Amazing paint! No other colours on the market match up to it. We only needed to use one coat as well which was brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous & Dramatic Hallway Colour I have been dreaming about putting this colour on my walls for five years. It did not disappoint! The coverage was brilliant (we were putting it onto light green walls and looked great even after one coat. We have lots left over so trying to decide what room to do next. Wipes off easily from gloss and hands and floors. I don’t think I would buy another make of paint again.
