Cook's Blue

No.237

A vibrant blue

Cook’s Blue was inspired by the rich and poignant finish in the cook’s closet at Calke Abbey where the walls had been untouched for many decades. This bright and deeply pigmented colour is perfect for use both in kitchens and exterior eating areas, as this vibrant tone is said to deter flies! But it is perfectly at home anywhere in the house. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: All White

Cook's Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 43.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely shade I wanted to brighten up my new front door and after sampling lots of shades ended up with this one. It gives a lovely Mediterranean feel to the front of the house . The coverage was great and the colour true and even . My whole house is painted in pointing and even with three kids and a mucky dog it washes well and has kept its colour after 5 years .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous paint I bought this to paint my husbands study. I was a little sceptical as I thought it would be too strident in a small room .However it looks brilliant- rather softer than it appears in the F and B video yet still distinctive and a dream to use being richly pigmented and a creamy consistency

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely clear bright blue Loved all the samples particularly the density of the pigmentations which really brought out the colour of our curtains!! Absolutely love all my Farrow & Ball colours. Many thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good match. I bought this to paint two picture frames to compliment my newly installed Cooks Blue painted kitchen units. Although not quite the same I added a little of the touch up paint I’d had left after the kitchen installation and it helped to soften the colour. Look a good match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely complementing blues I chose Lulworth Blue for the main room colour and Cook's Blue for the accent on the chimney breast. They create a lovely restful and warm effect in the bedroom. The paint covered well and looks just great.
