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 242.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant finish for new bespoke cabinet. We have used Inchyra blue estate emulsion and skimming stone in our lounge, which we love, then had a bespoke record cabinet made in one of the alcoves. Wasn’t sure to use skimming or inchyra to paint the cabinet. Skimming Wouk have made a contrast but we settled after playing with samples and gaining advice from Peter, we decided to use the blue to blend in. We think it’s worked well. the cabinet is predominantly MDF so needed good undercoat and a few coats of the blue. I used a roller and small cutting brush. Love the finish, created using time vision and patience plus good paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Front door dream! We used inchyra blue on our front door and it's fantastic. Perfect blend of blue and grey. Looks blue in bright sunlight and grey when it's more overcast. I loved the colour so much, I've used it on to paint a wooden border around a flower bed and a wooden planter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful multi-faceted colour The nuances of this colour make an ever changing display in the varied northern light - the tones of grey-green-blue have a warmth to them and a wonderful depth that doesn’t become gloomy even in the darkest corner. So pleased with Inchyra Blue it now graces my front door, a radiator or two and a cosy indoor space aswell. So versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fell in love immediately After extensive research on the perfect colour for my hallway I found inchyra blue. I’m so happy I did because from the first stroke I absolutely fell in love. The colour is so unique and I have had lots of compliments. Adding some needed character to my new build property.
