A clean mid blue

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.


All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this colour! I have been surviving widowhood, and part of it has been to change my bedroom to make it my own. I have gone from red linen and white to a softer touch. I ordered five colour samples to try, and chose Blue Ground because it sets off the painting chosen to go over the bed (I am an artist). I am VERY happy with the result, and found the painting very easy - great consistency, great coverage, it took two coats, but only just!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from beautiful paints I purchased 4 sample pots to try to choose a colour to repaint two kitchen cabinets. The paints arrived very quickly and were carefully packaged in a suitable sized box. All four were simply beautiful paints. We cut paper templates of the cupboards and were able to see the effect of each colour in situ before making a decision. The sample size was plenty to get a really good swathe of each colour. I was delighted with the project and chose Dix Blue for the cabinets in a flat matt finish and they look fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, goes on like a dream. Wanted a blue in my bathroom but I always worry about blue being too cool. Theres a lovely undertone in this colour that makes it still feel warm and bright. Goes well with both the chrome and white fittings in the bathroom, and the real towels. The paint is easy to apply and provides an even coverage, the walls aren't in great condition but the matte finish hides a multitude of sins and I think it self-levels well. Painted with a sponge roller. As a bonus there were virtually no fumes and no fragrance so it wasn't too intrusive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour Bought this to give our sitting room a lift. Beautiful colour, sadly not right for this room but will definitely use in another room. Great quality paint.
