Cook's Blue

No.237

A vibrant blue


Cook’s Blue was inspired by the rich and poignant finish in the cook’s closet at Calke Abbey where the walls had been untouched for many decades. This bright and deeply pigmented colour is perfect for use both in kitchens and exterior eating areas, as this vibrant tone is said to deter flies! But it is perfectly at home anywhere in the house. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: All White

Cook's Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 54.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

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.


QUALITY FINISHES

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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cook’s Blue This paint was a hot to use in terms of coverage and handling. The blue is vivid, yet soft and my old dresser looks beautiful. The colour goes well with any white and would also look super with yellow. One smallish tim did the entire dresser. It didn’t require undercoating because it had an old chalky white underneath which seemed fine. Love estate eggshell from Farrow and Ball!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kind of blue I bought this to make over a bedroom along with 2 others blue shades. I love Cooks Blue for its depth of colour in situ. Having 3 windows in the room means I can go with a deeper shade than I would do normally. Normally considered a cold colour, this isn't!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich, colours with unrivalled quality I love this colour but I also trust Farrow and Ball for quality. The pigment is so deep and the paint finish is perfect. Easy to apply and simply beautiful. Transformed my kitchen table!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oozes quality Applies like a dream and covers remarkably. Only gripe is 750ml is way more than I needed for my front door and so it’s makes it a pricey product that I wouldn’t buy again.
