Lulworth Blue


A fresh mid blue

This fresh mid blue’s name comes from the shade of the sea at beautiful Lulworth Cove, Dorset. Typical of a formal Regency hue, Lulworth Blue sits happily alongside similarly clean Wimborne White and Parma Gray. Despite its brightness, it can promote deep and peaceful sleep when used in low lit rooms, especially when used on both walls and woodwork. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: All White

Lulworth Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 133.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely true sky blue ! Used Lulworth on a kitchen wall to add some interest and lift the grey and white. It worked. Seems to act as a foil next to wood and stainless steel. Has a lot of depth for a pastel colour. Stays true in a not particularly bright corner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great match to Wedgewood blue I build my dining room around a Wedgewood Chandelier and this color is a perfect match to it. I used it above the header for the dining room doors. It worked well with the brown, white, cream, in the room as well as the highlight match with the chandelier. I've posted only the image of the header for now will add other images later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour for my new kitchen This turned out to be the perfect blue for my new kitchen. The 3 samples I ordered came quickly & all looked great but this was the one for me this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crisp, fresh mid blue Seizing the opportunity to redecorate my son’s room now he is at university, this is the perfect colour choice. My son is a ‘white walls’ man but I am slowly converting him to the joy of colour and this shade of blue is a complete winner. It remains as fresh as white and yet warms up his east facing room beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful warm blue After trying many (many) colours for our hallway, landing and feature wall in the living room, we decided that Lulworth Blue in Modern Emulsion worked best for all three. It is beautiful with All White, but also with creamier colours and looks perfect with metallics and light and dark wood too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality and Color Completed my studio and loved it so much I then painted our sunroom the same color. Quality exceeds my expectations - it just doesn't drip. Coverage and depth of color ....I am just so pleased. Worth the price.
