Dimpse 4.2 5 20 20
Great colour used this on kitchen walls. The blue grey effect was just what it needed to compliment new granite work surfaces. November 17, 2014
Beautiful soft grey This was just the loviest soft, sugar almond grey I was looking for. Have been using F&B paints for many years and have used lots of the grey pallet before but Dimpse is one of their new colours and untested by me. Am very pleased with the results although I did have to give walls three coats as still quite patchy after the second coat and that was with a base coat too. November 14, 2014
Light matt grey shade Used in kitchen with dark grey granite worktop, this paint shade lightens the whole room. November 4, 2014
Beautiful, calming colour I never, ever write reviews but thought i must for this paint as i read negative reviews, which almost put me off buying it. My whole house is Farrow and Ball and i have never been disappointed with a colour. I had decided on Dimpse for the Master Bedroom but when i started to read the reviews i was worried about how it might turn out. I decided to go for it as i have always been so certain on the choices i have made and i am glad to say i have not been disappointed. It is just as i would expect and just as the colour card shows. Other colours i have used in the house are Great White, Pavillion Grey, Pavillion Blue, Skylight and Blackened, all of which are just lovely. October 30, 2014
Doesn't look anything like the colour on the card, online or tin I've used farrow & Ball paints many times in the past and found the products to be pretty close to what we were looking for. This time however the paint when on the walls looked nothing like any of the cards, online colour charts or the tin. It may as well have been a paint lucky dip given how different it was to what we expected. Shame as I have had such fabulous previous experience with F&B paint as it lasts much longer than any other paints and keeps its finish much better. I bought 4 testers, which aren't cheap and not one of them was remotely near or even in the vicinity of what we thought they would be. If you are buying this paint make sure you have bought testers, painted it on the walls in different areas of the room and checked it in differernt lights otherwise you'll be making a very expensive mistake.

Dimpse Excellent product have used it in the bathroom and kitchen as they follow the same colour theme used the modern emulsion on the walls Dimpse on the bathroom door in eggshell and white eggshell in the kitchen.. the finished result is stunning ... am so pleased feels like a new house without the expense of moving .... bit more expensive than other paints but well worth the money x October 6, 2014
A blue not a gray! Having bought a sample tin and tried it various areas I proceeded to have my hall/stairs/landing painted in Dimpse. To my horror when painted over a large area the effect is a pale lavender-blue which comes through quite brightly. The area is lit by north and west facing windows. As I paid for a professional decorator to carry out the work I'm heartbroken as I'm now stuck with it. This is not a cool gray. September 6, 2014
More blue than gray It's a beautiful color, but in the bright west facing room in which I used it it reads more a cool, sophisticated light blue than a gray. Closer to Skylight (but less baby blue). I had the floors painted in Pavilion Gray, and will likely change the Dimspe walls to Cornforth White to tone them down and be less nursery like. September 2, 2014

A cool gray to complement Pavilion Gray and Blackened. The colour of twilight according to West Country dialect. White & Light Tones Undercoat.
