Understated and sophisticated
Wasn't brave enough to go for 'Downpipe' but am really pleased with the lighter 'Plummett'. Used in two bedrooms for my grown up boys, one with 'Borrowed Light ' and the other a pale primrose. Looks stunning in both rooms as a feature wall, including radiators and skirting.

Beautiful contrast with white.
Used in our living room, beautiful contrast with the white gloss doors and ceiling. You can tell its high quality paint.

Fantastic colour with amazing depth
Totally lived up to my expectations. The room looks even better that I anticipated.

super fresh colour
Really pleased with the results, used this on the living room walls and the woodwork and radiator.
Stunning effect, very fresh contemporary look.

This is the perfect dark grey.
Painted our bathroom in this. Eggshell on the wood paneling and modern emulsion on the walls. Forgot how good the quality of farrow and ball paint is and ordered way too much. Oh well, will just have to use in other areas. Hmm, maybe the kitchen.

This is darker than it looks in the pic but we loved it. So far, we've painted just one small wall in a hall with it (rest of hall is in Pavilion Grey which looks amazingly good) and it looks really amazing. I would like to be brave and paint a bigger area. The combination has transformed the hall from its 1980s boring bungalow look to more of an 'art gallery' feel, modern and interesting. The colour is so moreish and deep and stylish. Just wonderful. The hall leads to a bathroom, which is currently bright white (you need sunglasses to go in!) and we're going to paint the walls in the bathroom in a paler grey, Dimpsy, the new colour, which I hope will offset all the bright white tiles, and will be using Blue Ground to paint the tongue and groove panel on the side of the bath. I'm hoping it will all work together.

Still getting used to water based paint, it doesn't flow or brush out in the same way as oil based paint. Definitely needs two coats. I might try F & B's brushes next time. I painted some french furniture and I think the final result was excellent. First I used a wax remover, then I rubbed down with fine sandpaper and applied a water based grey primer/undercoat from another manufacturer. Then I applied two top coats of dead flat Plummett and rubbed down between coats. The undercoat flowed and covered the old pine colour perfectly but the F & B top coat paint didn't behave that way. I found it quite difficult to apply without leaving brush marks. It seemed there was not quite enough pigment in the paint and it didn't really cover that well. This was a bit surprising and I've not had that problem with their oil based paints. However, as you can see from the picture, the final result was stunning. I finished off with some beeswax so although the paint itself was dead flat I created a wonderful low sheen with the wax. Perfect!

The MOST gorgeous colour!
I love this colour so much - it's in our kitchen against white brick tiles and white cabinets which sets it off just beautifully. I was toying with this colour and Down Pipe for a while, but I'm so happy I chose Plummett in the end as Down Pipe would have been a little dark. First time using Modern Emulsion and great finish too! Very happy, heavily pregnant woman!
