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 222.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! Always always use Farrow and Ball paints, the depth of colour and the way it changes with the light through the day is amazing. Railings is a firm favourite, painted solid wood windows and doors on the exterior of the house and it has totally transformed or from a drab 1950’s semi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant finish I bought this about a month or so ago, also got the undercoat/primer for dark colours. It goes on really well and has a lovely finish. Very easy to roller on - I always use a small roller that’s usually used for gloss paint but find it goes on smoothly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply beautiful. We ummed and ahhed for ages over this colour. The tester pot of matt emulsion wasn’t a huge amount of help to be honest. The colour looked so flat. I managed to track someone down who had a pot of estate eggshell we could use a bit of and we fell in love with the depth of colour - and could finally see the blue in it! It looks stunning against our de nimes walls. It was a dream to use (I used the recommended dark tones primer first).
