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 4.6 out of 5 by 122.

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 Stunning colour The colour is so rich and yet contemporary. It’s not too dark but is deep enough to create a statement! It has transformed the room completely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Paint! I always choose Farrow and Ball paints when I can! The application and coverage are probably the best of any paints I’ve ever used. The depth of the colour is also fantastic! We are particularly happy with De Nimes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, rich colour Bought a tester pot and it's such a rich, beautiful colour. Like a petrol/green. It's as good as it looks in photos and I can't wait to use it in my spare room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delivered Colour Done Right I bought a pot of DeNimes paint from the website a couple of weeks ago, and not only did it arrive when it said it would, but the colour is fantastic. It went on the wall easily and the finish is superb. So simple, it's made my brush skills look professional.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous! I first started to paint this room in pink ground and got half way around the room when I realised although the colour was amazing,it clashed with the fireplace tiles. So rushed off to Homebase where I picked two tins of De Nimes,after a quick look at the colours! I was wondering if it would be too dark as my sitting room isnt large and faces west,however the more I painted,the more I realised I had picked a perfect colour. By the window it can look blue in the sun,yet the other side of the room shows as a deep blue/grey. In the evening under the lamp it appears a green blue! Going from magnolia to this was brave but well worth it and I had a rug in my room and picture that happened to match so even better. For my room I used one and a half tins,doing two coats.
