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 70.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blue, grey, silver... Love this colour. It changes in different lights and is very calming. Painted walls and ceiling in the bedroom and looks excellent with the old floorboards and fireplace.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning, soothing, enchanting greeny blue I experiment with F&B colours in our house fairly often, so have tried quite a lot of their colours. Light blue is hands-down one of my all time favourites. Oh my goodness, in the right room it is absolutely beautiful! Beware though, it’s a total chameleon depending on the direction of the room. In our East facing dining room with not much natural light this was a soft La Duree-esque green, which I liked but eventually decided to paint over to embrace the natural darkness of the room. I decided to give LB another chance in our west facing dual aspect guest bedroom and with more natural light, throughout the afternoon the colour is bluer, but still with a hint of green and that wonderful softness that F&B manage to do so magically, that makes you feel that the room has always been that colour, and that everything is right in the world! In a well lit room this is enchanting, so soothing and calming. My sister stepped into this bedroom last weekend and instantly said “this is my favourite colour in your house”. Furniture in this room is soft white (closest match Wimborne) with pale biscuit carpet and some other taupe accessories, and LB works really well with both. Cannot recommend this colour enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEAUTIFUL, calm yet warm colour I decorated a Georgian Coachhouse (South-East facing bedroom) in this colour. It's such a warm, welcoming, calm and homely colour which feels traditional yet light and airy in full sunlight and rich and cosy in the evenings. To me, it's more a green than a blue although you can put either colour with it. I used it on the ceiling too as the room is very small and it makes it feel more spacious, then complimented it with School House White (a rich creamy off-white) on the doors and window sills. Will be using it again in my hallway with Skylight and School House White!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Colour This is the most beautiful colour. Relaxing gentle and pretty. Although blue it has a huge amount of green in it and can look grey in some lights. Absolutely thrilled with the end result

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's better than what it says on the tin! I bought two tins of Farrow & Ball several years ago and in honesty, it exceeded my expectations. So, here I am again, doing a bigger, exterior paint job with the same type (eggshell finish) and am totally confident that I shall be equally happy with the finished job again. The first application on my outside wall from several years ago became a little dirty so I used a pressure washer but there were no fears about the adhesion. The cleaned wall became just like new. I have no reservations in recommending Farrow & Ball to my family, friends and neighbours.

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.
