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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denim blue De Nimes goes to the Ball It just goes to show, you CAN dress up denim blue. This De Nimes blue goes equally well with gold accents as it does with a hoedown. Love the whole "Not in Your Face" blue vibe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great versatile colour, I have used this in two locations in a newly refurbished house. Firstly on a kitchen island with dimity as the contrasting colour on other cabinets. Looks stunning. I have also painted an entire north-facing sitting room with it, including all woodwork, windowsill and ceiling. Works really well, not too grey, definitely a blue but not harsh a really modern/traditional feel to the room. The F&B pictures do not do it justice. The island colour looks very much like the pictures on the website, could be blue could be grey. In the north facing sitting room it takes on a whole new level of complexity. Really thrilled with results.
