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 81.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour and a robust paint The quality of this paint is exceptional and can be relied on for years of service. The colour is a perfect match with Blue Lias stone and is an ideal choice for external door and window finishes on buildings made from this material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and service After two attempts to buy the product from retailers including Home Base, Reigate - non in stock and 1 to 2 weeks wait decided to phone Farrow & Ball. Great service and product. This eggshell paint is the same depth of colour as originally applied 18 years ago which was still in good nick but need to be refreshed for another 18 years. Am a little undecided about All White Gloss water based paint (bought retail) which,even after adding a little water, still showed some brush strokes and lacked a really high gloss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful relaxing colour I painted our North-facing bathroom with Light Blue - and it looks wonderful. It's the same delicate grey/green/blue colour as the edge of the glass shower panels. Very good coverage and a lovely finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeously soothing colour! I used this extremely pretty colour to paint a ceiling, down to the top of a picture rail. Great quality paint enabled me to get away with doing just one coat - happy days!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour Beautiful colour for a sunny west facing bedroom, contrasted with All White for the woodwork and Mouse's Back for shelving and some furniture.
