Blazer

No.212

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 19.

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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich colour with a fine finish I always choose Farrow and Ball paints for our Victorian Terrace because they compliment its style so well. The paint is odourless, easy to apply and the finish gives added character.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant Blazer The product needed 3 coats over the wall & ceiling primer to obtain a high quality finish, worth the extra time to obtain a professional finish. The colour looked fantastic and has transformed entrance hall, into open plan drawing room , up through the stairs and landing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Usual expensive rubbish I would never recommend this expensive, thin paint, that always needs at least one extra coat, but if the customer insists what can I do. I am a professional decorator and have been since I left school nearly 40 years ago, I do know what I am talking about

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely rich colour I employed a decorator to put the colour on the wall. He asked me do I really want to put this colour on the wall in an aghast manner. I said yes, but he obviously thought it was a crazy idea, and kept saying 'well..if you like it....' On finishing the wall and seeing it dry he said surprisingly 'that's a really great colour!' And me, I love it! It's a beautiful colour...regal slightly, maybe reminiscent of a rectory, but updated to provide warmth and depth to our homes. You won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful paint. This paint is exactly what we wanted; something warm yet vibrant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has a solid perfect finish Used this colour in our hall which was previously white. Used Blazer as an accent colour on three walls and a niche. The result is excellent with the entrance being far cosier and more welcoming. The painter was happy with the performance of the Blazer Estate Emulsion

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour I have painted a small west-facing room in Blazer (white ceiling) and the result is beautiful. Warm in the morning and at night and glowing in the afternoon sun. Blazer has none of the heaviness of the darker or more firey reds (which I find rather cloying after a while) but no terracotta-ish or otherwise weak inflexion either. Very full in a rounded, livable, warm way. It makes the room, and it really does make it feel bigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives a warm and luscious feel to the room. I was a bit hesitant about using such a strong colour on the floor and in quite a small room. But the room is south facing and when the sun shines it feels like walking into a jewel, very warm and uplifting.
