Inchyra Blue


A dark blue grey

This aged blue grey is inspired by the naturally dramatic Scottish skies that act as a backdrop for the classic Georgian Inchyra House. It can be found on the exterior doors of their very impressive byre or barn which nestles at the bottom of a rather grey and imposing brae (also known as a hill). Such is the magic of our colours, this moody hue can read more grey, blue or even green depending on the light. A great alternative to charcoal, use it to inject a hint of colour into a super contemporary home or create a dark and intimate feel by combining it with Black Blue or Vardo. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Shaded White

Inchyra Blue is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 222.

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 Amazing colour I used the modern eggshell to revamp my kitchen cupboards. Lovely colour and finish. I used this alongside Drop Cloth on the top cupboards and Shaded White on the walls. I am so pleased with the whole finish abs so glad that I chose to use Farrow and Ball paints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour I bought this a month or so ago and I am so pleased I did. I have used it on my bathroom and have had so many people ask where the colour was from, when I uploaded it to social media!! Well worth buying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Colour Absolutely stunning colour, very easy to apply and low odour, the only downside we found was that it needed 3 coats to look perfect but otherwise very happy with our choice, really made the bookcase 'pop', it stands out without being obnoxious

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous colour I used this in my bathroom and absolutely love the colour - Inchryra blue in the walls and Manor House Grey in the woodwork. I painted onto white (no undercoat) and I could have almost got away with one coat (but did two) as it covers so well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fell back in love with this room! Going from french grey Inchyra blue was a brave move and my present husband was dubious to say the least! He couldn’t have been wronged. Love the depth of colour. Pair it with drop cloth and a statement wall and now we stay in this room more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pitch Blue Estate Emulsion Beautiful, rich paint to work with, excellent coverage. I found I used less paint than I would have with other brands. Stunning colour, which looks different depending on the light. Absolutely delighted with both the colour and the quality of this paint.
