Dix Blue

No.82

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 66.

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 Just beautiful After a small fortune spent on sample pots & weeks of agonising: Dix blue didn’t disappoint. So in love with this colour (woodwork is pointing).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheerful and warm for a north facing room I bought this for the kitchen diner, which has a west facing window and a south facing window so is very light and bright. Even though I tried the tester and liked it, when a larger area was covered it felt a little too bright and warm. However, I'm using it instead for my north facing utility room and it is perfect. It really freshens and cheers up what would have been a dingy dull room. (Plus it was a good excuse to use F&B in the one room I would normally have made do with something cheaper! I honestly didn't do this on purpose!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy! We bought the Dixe Blue shade for exterior use to redecorate our front door that was previously dark green. Covered well (only 2 coats needed) and didn't drip like some other brands. Very happy with the end result!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour I have used Dix Blue previously in my kitchen and loved it there so chose it again for this feature wall in the living room. It looks brighter in the living room but still a gorgeous colour that seems to manage to be soothing and cheering at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour and finish First time I've used Farrow & Ball paint. The first coat went on very uneven, almost like an primer and it took 2 more coats to get a smooth consistent finish. Looked lighter on opening the tin but dried to a lovely deep blue green which changes with the light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely fresh colour I painted cupboards in Wimborne white, walls in Dix blue. Other colours: black Rayburn, black and white tiles and terracotta red quarry tiles are fixtures so I chose Dix Blue to work with them. Whilst rubbing down an architrave I found a similar colour from many decades ago(the house was built in 1905). Dix blue has both a warm and a fresh feel to it and it looks sumptuous with my copper pans and silverware.
