Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and airy period blue, perfect for a bedroom We chose this shade for our bedroom having used a dark blue shade previously. We are very pleased with the effect - even several years on. It creates a period feel, is almost grey in some lights, never green and is elegant and calming, wonderful to wake up to. Conjures up visions of Marie Antoinette and Versailles....Perfect backdrop for mirrors and artwork, works well with dark wood furniture due to the contrast but would work equally well with French-style greys and off whites. We used Lime White (one of our favourite shades) above the picture rail and through the ceiling - they work beautifully together, trust me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Subtle, entrancing colour Some Farrow and Ball names are delightful, but -- sorry F&B -- some do seem misleading, even off-putting. I very nearly didn't try this because of the 'Light Blue' moniker -- but I'm glad I did! This is a great colour, but I can see very little blue in it. It varies in the light, of course, but it's one of F&B's subtlest colours, with some Scandinavian grey, some stone, and wonderful, glassy greenish undertones. We've used it in gloss as a front door colour and it looks great against etched glass and polished brass door furniture -- would look equally good, I think, with brushed steel or aluminium.
