Dix Blue


A relaxed green blue

This vintage blue takes its name from one of the first Farrow & Ball stockists based in East Anglia. Like many of our blues, Dix Blue has a large dose of green included in it, making it both warm and easy to live with. A touch of black pigment brings a slightly aged and relaxed vintage feel, making it perfect for use on upcycled furniture, panelling and woodwork, as well as living room walls. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Clunch

Dix Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 134.

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.


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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour We were going for a dark blue in our small sitting room but went with this to buck the trend. Used in a south facing room this veers towards green during the day and has an element of grey to it - a strong but elegant colour. Paired with All White on the ceiling and woodwork. Great coverage. We're very pleased with the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So calming and serene! Bought the match pot, now our bedroom walls and previously horrible fitted wardrobes have a new lease of life. It’s a beautiful colour and sets off the William Morris Curtains and blinds perfectly! Not quite finished yet, so no photos at this stage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour! Really happy with our bedroom painted in Dix blue rich and calming at the same time. Although the paint is expensive you can tell the difference it goes on really lovely and also doesn’t give off any smell and drys quickly as well!
