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 62.

Product Information 
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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

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 Beautiful Colour This is a truly exceptional colour - it varies between Blue/Greenish hue depending on the light quality in the room. It somehow manages to be subtle but noticeable for all the right reasons. Fabulous to live with - it is the base colour for most of my home and I have used it for about 10 years in several houses and I never get bored of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty colour I have painted the interior walls in the house throughout in strong white and cornforth white and wanted a colour to compliment the scheme for the upstairs doors and after many paint samples later I used light blue on the bedroom doors and bathroom doors. This is definitely one of my favourite farrow and ball colours to date, really happy with the final result and have had lots of compliments about the colour. I was looking for a pale blue grey colour and this is definitely more aqua than blue. Try this colour even if you are like me and not a green tone fan because its really gorgeous and you will be converted!! If you have Carrera marble in your bathrooms this colour really compliments the silvery grey tones of the marble and I have used pewter door furniture which again look well with this colour. The decorator did have to apply three coats but the end result was worthwhile.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 coats I have recently decorated the whole of my house in Farrow and Ball. I used Ammonite, Great white and slipper satin for the bedrooms and Light Blue for the lounge. The colours for the bedrooms were ok with 2 coasts but the light blue was still showing the white paint below it even after 2 coasts with the edging showing up a completely different colour when 3 coasts were used for that. The painter was surprised at how thin the paint was. Im afraid i can’t recommend this paint at all as it has cost me a fortune to buy all the paint and the painter in for an extra day! We had the room completed a few days before Christmas and after having everyone round the walls need painted again as the marked so easily. now i have to decide to top coat in light blue or to use another paint altogether. DH is not happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful We chose light blue estate eggshell to paint a black unused wood burner. The burner was originally used to heat our very old cottage but has not been in use for 15 years. We just kept as an original feature. The paint covered beautifully and evenly without that nasty toxic smell. Delighted as always with F&B
