Down Pipe, a dark lead grey, has definite blue undertones to it which deepen the complexity of the finish. Originally inspired by the colour used to paint downpipes and guttering, it has been embraced for use inside the home with fanatical zeal! This daringly dark hue is fabulous as a background to art, and extremely effective for use in halls to create a deeply dramatic entrance to the home.
Lovely product to use. First coat covered well. Hard to see the application of the second coat but a headtorch made that easier! The colour is rich and very pleasing on the eye. The room was previously painted in blackened and we were concerned that it would be too dark but it isn’t. It contrasts well with a white ceiling, skirting boards and pine wood floors and furniture. The depth of colour contrasts well with rich gold furnishings too.
