Farrow and Ball Plummet 272

This strong architectural grey is named after the lead often used by anglers to weight their lines. Plummett intensifies in colour in smaller spaces and has a strikingly modern feel which is conducive to minimal living. Used as much on woodwork to define dramatic spaces as it is on walls, Plummett is one of our most hard-edged and industrial feeling greys. There are many colors that can be paired with Farrow and Ball Plummet. It works well with Wevet, Pavilion Gray and Hague Blue colours.
