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 37.

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.


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 Fabulous new Red Goes without saying that F & B is the best paint you can buy, but ‘Blazer’, the new not quite Red colour is now a firm favourite. Perfect to add a pop of colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong colour I bought a tester pot which was enough to do two coats of this colour-blocking corner, and works really well with Pink Ground here too. It's in a dark corner, but it doesn't look too dark and stands out well in the evening.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Distinguished paint We decided that blazer red would make for an intense colour for a room with only artificial light. It's counter intuitive to use dark colours in small spaces but we think it works. We've renamed it organ room red as the picture will explain!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really pleased Great finish with the modern emulsion, great for bathrooms or rooms that are.prone to watermarks, scuffs and so on. I felt that it needed three coats to.achoeve a good finish and I had more than enough in the 2.5 litre can to finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely shade of red for our lounge doors I used modern eggshell and found it easy to paint. Decided on blazer to liven up our lounge painted in relaxing Fowler Pink; used stony ground to contrast on skirting. Love the way the room now looks. Used just over half of smaller pot for 1 door, needed 5 coats to get an even rich finish.
