A brilliant red

Blazer is a bright and cheerful vermilion which reads like a cleaner, more contemporary version of Rectory Red. It grabs your attention just like the sports blazers worn at St John’s College, Cambridge after which it was named. Close in colour to orange, this rich hue is both regal and charming.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones

Complementary white: Joa's White

Blazer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 44.

Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odor, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. They also meet child- and baby-safe requirements in accordance with The Canada Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations, Canada Toy Regulations (SOR/2011-17) – Section 23 and ASTM F963 – 17 - Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety.


Our paint colours are 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 the colour. Bought sample of Blazer and exactly the colour I was looking for so will get decorator to use for kitchen and conservatory. Used the sample on walls in both rooms and colour true to paint cards and went on very smoothly. Looking forward to rooms being decorated and will certainly look at Farrow and Ball paints in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sample purchase I bought a sample of this red in preparation for a new kitchen, I got this and Incarnadine. Blazer is the freshest looking of the two so have decided to paint my island in this colour. I hand painted an old pine kitchen in F&B Pointing ten years ago (four coats including undercoats) and the eggshell finish has worn well in daily life. I never use any other paint. I have tried a few new innovations from other brands but none compare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous new Red Goes without saying that F & B is the best paint you can buy, but ‘Blazer’, the new not quite Red colour is now a firm favourite. Perfect to add a pop of colour.
