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 506.

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 Hague Blue Stuck with a bright yellow sofa and chair, I searched for a paint colour that would work with them. I settled on Hague Blue and it works beautifully with them. The finished look is unlike any other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thrilled with the color! Painted my white fireplace and chimney with Hague Blue. Still have two more sections to go. I used the dark tones primer and have two top coats over that. My little ranch house will be transformed! Using this on the bricks has gone very well, that surface has become rich and warm. Very pleased. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeously rich and classy I decided to paint the exterior of my red brick cottage, ie window sills, garage doors in this exquisite shade of teal blue. It looks its best when the skies are thunderous on a rainy summer's day, ie today in August!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxurious I smothered our den in Hague blue and I’m obsessed. Walls, ceiling, trim, doors. Everything. Only complaint is that it does show scuffs on the doors, so I’d stay away from using on high traffic areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hague Bleautiful I love, love love the colour, it is dark and rich, the upside to the paint/colour is that it is very matt and goings on lovely and flat, we did get the wall replastered first as the builder said that any lumps and bumps will show up with this colour, the downside is that it is almost chalky and scuffs very easily.
