Blue Gray


A cool blue grey

With its subtle mix of blue, green and black pigments, Blue Gray creates the most relaxed of rooms that feel as if they have always been there. It is a cooler, more weathered version of French Gray and has the same almost magical quality of gently shifting between blue and grey depending on the light and time of day. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Shaded White

Blue Gray is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 105.

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 What a superb paint! Bought for our lounge, what an excellent colour! I was- as always- very impressed with the quality and ease of application, makes such a change from other brand paints. Why bother with any other paint?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect compliment for green smoke I painted my hall in green smoke and decided to paint the wall going up the stairs and the landing in blue gray and it looks amazing, you pay extra for farrow and ball but it’s worth every penny, there’s a depth and smoothness to this paint you don’t get with other brands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour Perfect colour for our bedroom. I would class it as a green rather than blue gray but I knew this from reading previous reviews. Trying to decide which F&B colours to use in the rest of our home now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour for our conservatory After trying more than 15 sample pots, we finally chose Blue grey for the new conservatory/orangerie. It’s a great colour however it is neither blue nor grey, it’s a sage green. I’m still looking for the blue or grey but like it regardless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Bought Cromarty for kitchen and Blue Gray for dining room (open plan) loved Blue Gray for dining room and liked Cromarty. Liking wasn’t good enough so I asked my decorator to paint over Cromarty and use Blue Gray. Absolutely love it . My kitchen and dining room are north facing and the colours works brilliantly. The paint went on beautifully with 2 coats, no undercoat required and this was covering one red wall. My decorator was well impressed. My husband not so much as expensive mistake using Cromarty then covering over. I can definitely see Gray undertones however more a sage green. Gorgeous. Now Looking to paint the lounge.
