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 260.

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.


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 Stunning. Love my house again Recently discovered f and b paints. Must admit thought it was just for people with money to burn but my goodness I am never going back! Colour and finish is magnificent. Went for Inchyra blue with sulking room pink on one wall. I am absolutely thrilled to bits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really love this colour I've used F&B paints lots of times. This was a big room with woodwork and walls being painted. Paint was a good as expected and the colour is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Inchyra Blue We did an online colour consultancy and have started with the front door, we painted it in Inchyra Blue and we’re so pleased with how it looks. Next is Inchyra in the family room, followed by other rooms in Light Blue, Oval Room Blue, Cromarty & Blue Grey alongside Wimborne and School House White. Such lovely complementary colours Well worth having a consultation to help consolidate your colour scheme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not Blue Not Grey Not Green - Perfect Every other colour looks great against this blue, natural wood and gold/brass really shine out. Contrasting it with some brightly coloured things is great fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rich colour for my study I took the plunge and painted all the study walls with Inchyra. A large bay window gives plenty of light and mahogany furniture looks great with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautiful, rich, contemporary dark blue green. I love this colour. Great for cupboards or a feature wall. It’s a lovely dark blue green with a contemporary feel and has freshened up our tired kitchen, with Pale Powder emulsion on the walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite colour ever! Fell in love with this paint. I started off doing one wall in my bedroom and ended up doing the whole room. Such a gorgeous colour and changes from blue to green depending on the light.
