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. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular outdoors I chose Scotch Blue for the for drama and drawing the eye from indoors to outdoors with the complemenatry colours used indoors. I painted my outdoor eating table chairs the scotch blue with ash grey for the table top and london clay table pedestal base. Spectacuar! It gave my outdoor casual elegance. Scotch blue goes well with the natural outdoor greens, browns , flower colours. It is even complementary with cerelean blue sky and the many colors of twilight. Scotch blue turns a inky blue black in twilight and has a reflective glow in outdoor candle light. Three coats were required for the depth and a velvety appearance. Scotch blue is one of Farrow and Ball's strokes of colur genius!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely gorgeous colour I bought 750ml dark undertone primer together with exterior eggshell Scotch Blue to paint my wooden Garage door and wooden slatted exterior walls. The paint was easy to use the finish excellent. I love it, so much so I plan to have my bespoke Shaker kitchen cabinets hand painted in interior Scotch Blue eggshell. Together with chrome cabinet furniture I think it will look fabulous, delicious. The pigment is superb a deep navy with a purple hue.
