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 483.

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 Great colour-really transforms a room I was a bit worried and cutting in against a white wall and ceiling was tricky but really pleased with the final result. The other colour is Pointing

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful colour! Hague Blue Modern emulsion was recommended to us for our lounge. We hadn't imagined using a dark blue emulsion but trusted the advice and we're so glad we did - it is stunning! The paint was very easy to use (we used brushes rather than a roller), and the coverage was excellent after two coats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hague Blue Matt for walls Hague blue is a fabulous colour and after deliberating over a pile of wallpaper samples so very glad I chose to paint the walls of my Victorian dining room. I made a mistake and chose modern with the slight sheen. It looked gorgeous but unforgiving of imperfections so redid with another two coats of the matt emulsion. Worth it has a serious wow factor with Purbeck stone, Cornforth white and White coving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning period colour I decided on wainscotting my hallway and staircase in September. Lockdown was a bonus as I had the time to finally start this project. I decided on a dramatic entrance hall to complement the houses many period features. I think all the hard work is paying off. It’s not quite finished yet. I haven’t added the wallpaper, lighting or runner. But I am so glad it’s taking shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rich and dark I bought this for updating my bedroom- it needed to fit with my cream furniture. It looks perfect and so nice to have virtually no smell. Very happy with the overall look and know it will last for years
