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

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 Perfect Colour We have painted our new garden shed and garden table in De Nimes using Dark Tones wood primer and undercoat. The paint went on easily and looks fantastic - a subtle denim blue that changes in different lights. We’ve highlighted it with Vert de Terre which we had left over from an earlier project. The Vert de Terre is at least 8 years old and is as good as new. I love De Nimes so much I’m looking where else I can use it. Before ordering I had a very helpful online chat with Farrow & Ball who advised me how much paint to order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely stunning I cannot express how much I love this colour! I was dubious about going dark but am so pleased I did. De Nimes has transformed the kids old playroom into a fabulous study and I am extremely tempted to use it in more rooms...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely bluey grey denim colour I had been trying to decide what colour to paint our front door for months and finally settled on De Nimes. As a previous reviewer said I was worried that it looked too grey and lighter than i thought when I first put the paint on, but it does indeed dry darker to a definite blue, a bluey grey, but definitely more blue than grey, which is what I wanted. Am intending to paint the side gate as well now. Was lovely to paint with. I love farrow and ball paint but this is the first time I have used exterior eggshell and it looks great.
