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 144.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A mid-century, cosy colour I was looking for a mid-century modern-style colour for a very bright room that could take darker walls. Dix Blue was perfect. My possessions are somewhat rainbow-hued, and it goes with everything. It's very calming after dark too, making the room really cosy. The same great coverage as always with F&B. Pretty accurate to the website photos, although I find it a bit darker than some of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh lick of paint for my shed I decided on Dix Blue and All White (Exterior Eggshell) when I had my shed made in 2013 and haven’t changed it since, I still love the colours (the shed company even used a photo of my shed in their adverts as they loved it too!). I’ve just given it a couple of coats and it looks as fresh as a daisy. The paint goes on really easily and dries beautifully flat, the white (just like many whites) needs a couple of coats to get a good solid finish but looks fantastic once dry. I think the last time I painted it was 2015 so the paint has lasted really well, I could have easily left it another year or two as it was still looking tidy but decided I needed a project in the spring sunshine. I’ve also painted our garden table in Dix Blue and that looks beautiful too! Thank you Farrow & Ball.

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.
