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 4.6 out of 5 by 184.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A deep, rich, matt lustre I bought F & B's Inchyra Blue very recently and I am very happy with the results. Originally, the idea to paint in this colour was inspired by a friend and my connection with Scotland and its many seasonal moods. There was already a dark colour on my walls and therefore, I found that I only required one very good coat from a 2.5L pot. I had not really appreciated that the dark colour underneath was likely to affect the surface coat colour, so, my paint colour has come up darker than shown on F & B's site. Nonetheless, the finish is sultry, rich, sumptuous, and has a deep matt lustre that changes with the light of the day. Simply stunning, thank you! Xxx

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality paint! Again farrow and ball never fail! Once you use this paint you will not go back to cheaper brands. It goes on a dream and the choice of colours are fantastic, I have them in every room. This is a family room we have done in Inchyra Blue and Shaded White

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage Delivery was fast. Product was great and the paint covered well. Low VOC. Only thing I'd request is to have a stir stick provided as it didn't come with one and I didn't use the paint until days after it arrived and it needed a good stir.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A splash of sophisticated colour After eight years of the same paint and six months staring at the same four walls, curtesy of lockdown, a change was needed. The kids were bigger so we decided we could grow our living room up. We immediately thought of a feature wall, a desire to bring stately grandeur to our tiny London terrace. F&B was the obvious choice for a touch of sophisticated colour. Happily our eyes were drawn to Inchyra Blue and boy has it done the job. The room is still our little family room but the colour gives a nod to nostalgic elegance. Inchyra Blue has given the room the glow up we all wanted. I just love the colour, I stare at the wall and daydream of stately homes, chocolate labradors and long walks in tweed. It's a warm nostalgic hug, great for when I get home after a crowded central line commute. Inchyra Blue has given our little room a great big elegant heart.
