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 4.6 out of 5 by 238.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect color So happy a friend recommended Farrow and Ball. They had the perfect shade for our remodel project. The ordering process was easy and paint arrived quickly. Would highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely deep grey colour I was worried about this paint looking too blue from some of the other reviews so I ordered a test pot and, with two coats, I found it to be exactly the deep shade of grey I was hoping for for our new front door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fabulous colours A slightly daring choice for my dining kitchen, but the deep dark colour looks great. Be bold, you won't regret it! The paint goes such a long way, you always need less than you think

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A dream to paint with We bought a dresser which was colour matched to farrow and ball railings We ordered the modern eggshell for our fireplace and shelves. The first coat looked like it was going to take lots of coats. How wrong I was the second pulled everything together and created a lovely even coat. The colour is amazing and I will no longer be buying the usual delux. Ordered a colour chart ready for the rest of the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic!! I bought a 5l and a 2.5l tin, expecting to need to coat 4 times as it is a very dark colour covering a very light colour. The coverage was brilliant. after 2 coats it was fine, but I gave it a third, because I could! I also returned the 2.5l tin for a refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic results .... Bought this for my teenage daughter’s bedroom, initially with some reservation but she painted it herself and we live it, she says she sleeps much better with it being so dark at night !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast drying I brought this to paint my floor and was surprised at how fast drying it was and easy to use. Great coverage and hard wearing in our high traffic hall and landing. Also used on all the woodwork in the bathroom.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage Only took 2 coats to cover a very light wall and wood panelling. I undercoated with farrow n ball grey undercoat and primer first. Paint gripped really well to the surface. Two coats completed the look. I still have a third of a 2.5 ltre tin left. Really thrilled with the finished results
