A light silvery blue
This silvery blue was so named because it was the lightest blue Farrow & Ball made in its first collection of colours. Light Blue becomes a little more silver in tone when used in shaded areas so is very popular for use on the walls of internal halls, especially when the remainder of the house is painted in cooler, more neutral greys. When used in well lit areas it feels both peaceful and calming, especially when paired with a cool white like Blackened.
Available in our brand new Dead Flat finish for walls, woodwork and metal.
Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones
Complementary white: School House White
Rated 5 out of 5 by Anna109 from Light blue This colour has such complexity to it. I didn’t want a bright bold blue to go in my bedroom but more of a muted blue. This is the paint! The bedroom is north facing however the en suite is south facing so lets a lot of light into the bedroom. Through out the day the colour changes from blue, to blue-green and to blue-grey, perfect for a nautical themed bedroom. The quality of the paint is great. I would definitely recommend using a primer especially on newly plastered walls, as it makes the paint go further. I only needed one 250ml pot to do two coats of the whole bedroom with some remaining. The colour is so cosy and looks really expensive. I would definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Cay from Dreamiest Paint Ever “Decedent” is the best word I can use to describe the finish. It is like nothing else on the market and I don’t think painting our paneling would have turned out so beautifully if I hadn’t used Farrow and Ball. I didn’t know that paint could make me so happy but every time I look into this room I can’t help but smile. I love the way it shifts throughout the day based on the lighting but I enjoy every color it pulls to. Very soothing and satisfying color. I’m already mentally committing to using only farrow and ball paints throughout our home that we are saving up for. It is worth every penny!!
