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: Dark Tones 

Complementary white: All White

Cook's Blue is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 26.

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 Nice warm blue Ordering and delivery of this paint was excellent. Not quite the right shade to match existing border so may try another shade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good quality paint Great colour in particularly in summary days. Otherwise no other concern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A glamorous blue I took a deep breath before applying this colour to my guest room walls, which were previously white. The room is quite dark and I wondered if Cook’s Blue would make it look tiny. I was so pleased with the results: a dark and very elegant blue which makes the room look so inviting that I am tempted to use it myself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from possibly overdosed on Cook's Blue but there you are... I recently put Cook's Blue on the whole back wall of my apartment in Portugal and I love it: a lot of light in the morning, deep shadows in the afternoon and a gloom of the evening are all very differently reflected by this cheerful background. Yes, it is very personal but I love it. The rest of the apartment remains white, just white as a contrast...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Actual colour bears no resemblance to website colour No complaint about the product, but the colour is miles away from the website colour. On the website it is quite a muted almost grey blue. In reality, the blue is very bright, almost garishly so. A bright Mediterranean sky blue in fact. There are some photos online of the real colour, make sure to check them out. It's still a nice blue, but it wasn't what I thought I was buying. Beware, if this review is actually published.
