Light Blue

No.22

A light silvery blue

This silvery blue was so named because it was the lightest blue Farrow & Ball made in its first collection of colours. Light Blue becomes a little more silver in tone when used in shaded areas so is very popular for use on the walls of internal halls, especially when the remainder of the house is painted in cooler, more neutral greys. When used in well lit areas it feels both peaceful and calming, especially when paired with a cool white like Blackened. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Strong White

Light Blue is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 124.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour I bought this to patch up a part of wall in my bathroom which is already painted this colour. It has been this colour for years and each time I think of changing it I always decide to stay with this colour as I love it so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour, excellent quality I was worried this colour would be too dark, but it’s only made our room feel bigger, and It’s such a lovely relaxing colour. Love it paired with the recommendation of strong white, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from vibrant colour Fabulous colour, St Giles Blue. It's so vibrant and has cheered up my dreary front of house! It has a Mediterranean feel and looks sunny even on a rainy day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour This is probably my favourite colour to date . I’ve got it in a attic room which gets lots of light and it goes from being grey to blue to green to duck egg at different times of the day . I find it very similar to Cromarty just a bit more blue . It’s a very serene peaceful colour. I didn’t use the primer but it still covered very well in 2 coats with a beautiful depth to the colour . The paint itself is lovely to work with

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful hues of colour.... Accurate colour chart, first coat results in a very pale grey blue when fully dry, second coat a true light blue. Painted kitchen cabinets in modern eggshell, good coverage, recommended by professional decorator. Colour of cabinets change as the light of the day does, in the morning a true light blue, afternoon light blue with silver coming through, then a surprise in the evening, I would call it sea foam. Very pleased with result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this colour I chose this colour from both the F&B overview for hall use and also customer feedback. It is quite a change from my usual choice but I absolutely love it and have now decided to upgrade my living room which leads from the hallway and now looks tired. The paint is really easy to use both with a roller and brush. Two coats resulted in a good depth of colour. My hall is quite dark due to windows only in the doorway, this colour just works perfectly and it's interesting to see the subtle colour change from light blue to a slightly green tinge in different lights.
