Black Blue

No.95

A sophisticated black blue

Black Blue takes its name from the two essential pigments that make up its rich colour. This deep shade appears much bluer when seen in large areas, especially when used in Full Gloss. When painted on small areas, or contrasted with a bright white, it will appear almost black in colour. Wherever it’s used, this saturated tone that feels incredibly sophisticated.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Ammonite

Product Information 
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 132 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 Go Bold Go Black Blue We are in the midst of a long rennovation and decided to dip, quite literally into the F&B Archive. The picture is just a sample as we are painting the whole of the hall panelling in the seductive pigment of Blue Black which is one at the same the most silent of whispers and the heaviest of noises you could ever imagine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful colour We have used this colour in our bathroom and it looks amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark It feels like an experience walking into a room covered in blue black. It's challenging for some and stimulating for others. It gives off a gentlemen's club or art gallery vibe. It's actually very cosy. I would advise some metal in the room to bounce of some light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's only ever F&B Used black blue to paint a stained pine fire surround. The walls were already painted in F&B Stifkey Blue. It looks delicious. Deep in colour and just the right amount of sheen to set it off from the wall. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful finish Used to create some warmth to my living room and teamed with strong white. Rich in colour with an elegant feel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luscious darkness This colour is stunning. Also a dream to apply. I had used f&b before and the thorough preparation helped this time. I agree with other reviewers that depending on the time of day and quality of light the colour changes and sometimes you see inky blue or charcoal. Exactly what I wanted. Very sophisticated. The paint has a quality and depth that is unlike any other paint I have used. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. I wanted a gritty colour for my study, and this felt like a daring choice but is, I think, stunning. It looks particularly good with the contrasting cream woodwork including floorboards. It would look great with a seagrass type floor. Very happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great depth of colour We chose this black blue for the exterior of our new house to replace the horrendous width washy faded green and I'm completely in love with it. Depending on the time of day and quality of light it can appear as charcoal grey, inky blue or dark forest green so beautiful. It was a bold decision but I'm so pleased we went with it.
