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 4.6 out of 5 by 52.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great blue Tried loads of tester pots and nearly went with a pale gray. Thankfully I didn’t and the colour looks great. In bright sunlight the blue really comes out with a hint of green and as the light goes it become darker and a little grayer. I was a little apprehensive that the room would be too dark, but it feels light and airy. Full marks F&B, lovely paint.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The best of the testers We sent for four tester pots for our bedroom project and liked this one best. It looked good with chalky whites and had real substance as a colour. We have now ordered enough paint for the work to be done, so not able to comment on the final results yet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour Beautiful colour and finish, we used this colour in both the living room and also the bedroom and it looks divine, very warm and rich with a chalky finish. 2 coats with a small roller did the job perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely warm blue This paint went on really well, I used the undercoat as advised and had no trouble getting nice even coverage with one coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely This colour has turned my bathroom into such a lovely room. I was nervous about using a colour in my new build white flat but it has made it very homely.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as expected I've used Farrow & Ball before on small projects and never had a problem. I bought Dix Blue to paint 3 of the walls which match the other feature wall. The colour is beautiful and just what I wanted bit the paint is a shoddy quality. It's far too oily and made painting really difficult. I mixed the paint well before use. The product is massively over priced. £80 for 5 litre. Which I wouldn't mind so much if the quality was reflected in the price. It's not. Avoid. Won't be using again. Also, I opted out of receiving emails from you but continue to be bombarded daily.
