Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful deep dark blue I was looking for a dark blue colour and all the pictures I saw of black blue on the internet (as well as the name) made me think it was almost black. I got a tester of this and Hague blue and even then it was hard to tell what it would be like as it looks darker when just a sample size area is painted. My gut, and the reviews here, led me to believe it would look more blue on a whole wall. Well that's the case - it's a lovely deep dark blue, definitely not black. The picture attached is one coat dark undercoat and one coat black blue (it needs another). It looks darker in the photo than in real life. Trust these reviews over the pictures. It's a beautiful colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeously very dark blue that adds and depth and drama to a scheme. Love this colour. It's harder to get a good finish than the neutrals just given the number of of thin coats needed to achieve the full depth of colour. Whilst it can look black, like all Farrow & Ball paints, the colour has a real depth and in different light and on different surfaces you get very dark blue and even a very, very dark sea green. Our wallpaper is Stags Head in teal and the Blue Black is a much kinder compliment than just black. Farrow & Ball 'Black Blue' on; mirror, fireplace, hearth, windowsill, tv table and as base coat for crackle on woodwork. Farrow & Ball 'Strong White' above picture rail.
