Inchyra Blue

No.289

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 60.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

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.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our 132 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.

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. 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 Love this colour, the perfect rich shade that is great for the mix of traditional/vintage and modern that we were looking for. The modern emulsion finish is very durable for the bathroom too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow deep rich colour great coverage Having seen this in a friend's home I noted how it beautifully sets off natural colours. So it was a no brainer to buy some. The richness of the pigment really is a thing to behold. I confess we did investigate the colour matching services to try a cheaper copy but so utterly disappointing and wishy washy in comparison with the real deal. F n B has pigment. And gazillions of it. No white fillers. So the finish is a depth that really has to be seen to be believed. It has moods, subtle changes with the light, a stunning canvas in itself. Really delighted. I'd recommend this without hesitation, it's the difference between an OK finish and a "wow" finish. Plus it's excellent value for money when purchased directly from the website. Coverage is stunning. We have a full tin left as if I'm honest we didn't believe the recommendations from f n b as it sounded too good to be true. Such a shame, we'll be using it in another room lol ;)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint Excellent paint very easy and smooth application. Dries very quickly for an exterior paint. I mixed two colours to achieve the colour I wanted No289 & No83 Exterior Eggshell with 6 year guarantee. I’ve used Farrow & Ball paint on several projects and always been extremely happy with the results. I would never use anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the Drama. Stunning colour that changes quite dramatically in different lights (from a definite smoky blue to a greyish green). I used paint pads and brushes and It went on the walls like a dream, the finish is exquisite. This is the first room we have painted in our house and the first time I have had the pleasure of using F&B, can’t wait to do more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the colour, shame about poor service from Fedex for delivery The colour is great and paint quality is excellent as always. I won't be ordering online again though. F&B were good and refunded me my next day delivery cost as I eventually received the paint 4 days late. Having booked and cancelled my decorator a number of times I eventually had to pay him for wasting his time so it was an extremely expensive pot of paint! Next time I will make the journey to their Wimborne showroom and pick it up as I have always done in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous rich colour I love this colour. It changes throughout the day depending on the light. It brings a lovely rich warmth to the dining area of a large open plan kitchen. It took a good couple of coats to cover the white walls but the coverage was good overall. The only thing I've noticed is there is quite a strong smell to the paint which I haven't had before. However this wouldn't stop me from purchasing again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gorgeous colour that works well in both contemporary & traditional settings We selected this colour for a feature wall in the sitting room of our cottage. My partner was worried it may be too dark or look cold, being blue, but the opposite is true; it lends warmth and depth to the room and contrasts well against the red brick fireplace. Although ours is a period home we have some contemporary furniture and this colour seems to bridge the gap between the old traditional features and the newer elements in the room.
