De Nimes

No.299

A down to earth and grounding blue


This quietly elegant blue feels wonderfully down to earth, so could be used on anything from a kitchen island to an airy drawing room. The exact shade is rooted in a regency palette but is inspired by the cloth of everyday workwear made in the French city Nîmes. Like denim, its blue hue is ultimately fashionable and yet always feels grounded.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Shaded White

De Nimes is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 138.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour and coverage I bough this a month ago after looking for other cheaper alternatives but I am happy for every penny I have spent. It took two coats but the paint dried quickly enough to be able to complete the job in one day. The colour is grey blue and it’s very chic! I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely quality I love this paint! I normally go for a cheaper option when it comes to paint but decided to try the more expensive ones and I'm glad I did. The colour is not only gorgeous but the quality of the paint is superb!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue Jeans & cozy sweater This is by far my favorite paint color! My room feels like I painted my favorite blue jeans on the wall & painting the ceiling the same color, topped off my “outfit” with my go to cozy sweater!!! This is after one coat of paint....I ran out and need to buy more. Really wish it wasn’t so expensive, but I couldn’t love the dimensions of this color more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this blue Hallway was originally pavilion gray but wanted something a lot darker, chose De Nîmes and we love it! I much prefer estate emulsion for a Matt finish but we decided on modern emulsion as it’s a busy area, it has a slight sheen to it, it was very easy to use and we are very happy with the finished look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to apply and lovely finish Purchased to upcycle a toy box. Using it with the dark primer, it went on a breeze and dried as expected. The finish is hard wearing and looks stunning. I also purchased the Shaded White to compliment the look, as recommended on the website, which brought out the look even more. Highly recommend.
