Dix Blue


A relaxed green blue

This vintage blue takes its name from one of the first Farrow & Ball stockists based in East Anglia. Like many of our blues, Dix Blue has a large dose of green included in it, making it both warm and easy to live with. A touch of black pigment brings a slightly aged and relaxed vintage feel, making it perfect for use on upcycled furniture, panelling and woodwork, as well as living room walls. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Clunch

Dix Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 125.

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 Really good paint Great paint, very good coverage, colour is great. We used it in our playroom and got green curtains with it as it looks more green than blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint - expensive but high quality Bought to repaint kitchen cupboards - used a primer, then a coat of F&B undercoat and two coats of top coat - superb finish - very happy - also F&B gave advice on the best way to do the job and which undercoat to use. I'm 74 and this is the best paint I've used

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So pleased with the colour I bought this colour to use in my bathroom and I’m super pleased with it! The shade gives a refreshing pop of colour against the white tiles and suite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our favourite paint EVER We had already painted a feature wall in our lounge with Dix blue, but decided that we wanted to paint all the walls as we loved the colour so much. Having used other brands of paints, F&B just do not compare. The quality of coverage, finish and intensity of colour is absolutely superior to any others. Our home feels cosy and warm, and we would always recommend your brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calming (green) blue I painted my son's bedroom in this colour. His room is north facing and the blue looks very green in his room. I painted the mid tones undercoat first and am so glad I did - paint went on easily and with great coverage. His room looks very smooth and clean now and so much better than the rest of the house - I'll have to paint it all now too!
