Rectory Red

No.217

A rich red

This rich clean red is named after the charming village houses built over the years for the clergy. Rectory Red is a blackened and aged version of Blazer and feels much more sophisticated, especially when contrasted with Red Based Neutrals such as Joa’s White. It is a warming colour which will intensify when used in a small space to create the most welcoming of rooms. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones

Complementary white: Dimity

Rectory Red is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 128.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent In the hope the paint would match, ordered a sample pot to cover area replastered by electrician on 7 year old Rectory Red decorated wall. Perfect match - needed 3 coats over new plaster and working in towards undisturbed areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chose this colour without a test pot. I chose this colour for my beamed sitting room and I was that confident that I would like it; I didn't bother buying a sample. Happy to say that I'm really pleased. I painted the ceiling and beams an off white shade (can't remember name) It's a stunning colour, rich and warm and cosy
