Hague Blue


A deep dark blue

This strong blue takes its name from the fantastically coloured woodwork much used by the Dutch, and still works wonderfully to ground skirtings or as an accent colour on the walls when teamed with Borrowed Light. The green undertones of this timeless, deep and dramatic blue means it sits as happily outside as it does in small dark rooms. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Old White

Hague Blue is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 514.

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 An elegant, inky, night sky blue. I adore this colour, it is so like a Van Gogh’s blue. I have used it in the master bedroom and it is so very beautiful and feels very elegant. It is like being enveloped by a night sky. The paint itself is a dream to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Deep Inky Blue I sampled Hague Blue because it matched the background color on my duvet. What a gorgeous deep inky blue color. Has definite grayish and greenish undertones which are perfect for my needs. It covered very well for such a dark color and the finish from the sample pot was very matte. Dark blues are so hard to match from small color cards or even a fan deck. You need a big chunk of color on a poster board to really see how the color changes with the light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hague Blue Stuck with a bright yellow sofa and chair, I searched for a paint colour that would work with them. I settled on Hague Blue and it works beautifully with them. The finished look is unlike any other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilled with the color! Painted my white fireplace and chimney with Hague Blue. Still have two more sections to go. I used the dark tones primer and have two top coats over that. My little ranch house will be transformed! Using this on the bricks has gone very well, that surface has become rich and warm. Very pleased. Thanks.
