Hague Blue


A deep dark blue

This strong blue takes its name from the fantastically coloured woodwork much used by the Dutch, and still works wonderfully to ground skirtings or as an accent colour on the walls when teamed with Borrowed Light. The green undertones of this timeless, deep and dramatic blue means it sits as happily outside as it does in small dark rooms. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Old White

Hague Blue is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 418.

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 Gorgeous pigment! Absolutely love this colour. I originally thought I was convinced about painting a wall railings instead, but when I tried the sample of this colour to compare I loved it. It’s dark enough to have a really dramatic effect but not so dark that it looks black. Love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hague Blue Decided to be bold and paint two walls of a small bedroom in Hague Blue. It is a fabulous rich deep colour. Also painted the skirting board in the same colour to give a feeling of quality and space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint and great quality I bought this for the bedroom, I decided to be brave from my usual grey! I use little greene usually, but decided to try F&B. I am very impressed with the colour, the quality and how easy it is to use. A little goes a long way. Love it. Delivery was super fast also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb quality, colour and finish. I have never liked painting and always found it my least favourite maintenance activity. Having moved house last year, lockdown became the opportunity to remodel our daughters bedroom. We found colours in the F&B range we loved including Downpie, Lamproom Grey and Hague Blue. We bought mid and light tones undercoat and I have painted a significant amount of wood and beams with the paint. I found the process very enjoyable, easy and rewarding. To the point I wouldn’t look to use paint other than F&B and I would do the decorating myself in future. I am very happy with the finish of Estate Eggshell and the final outcome is better than our initial expectations.
