Oval Room Blue

No.85

A darkened historic blue

Oval Room Blue is the most blackened of our blues, giving it a subtly aged feel. Named after the attractively shaped rooms of the late 18th century, it sits perfectly with our popular greys to create depth and balance in either a hall or a darker, cosier family room. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones 

Complementary white: Shadow White

Oval Room Blue is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 100.

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 Feature wall Love this colour - it has real depth. Used as a feature wall in our bedroom - the other walls were painted in Green Blue, they go really nicely together and the room looked fab!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful rich blue We decided to paint our bedroom in oval room blue. We chose the modern emulsion, I love the colour options of farrow and ball but am always looking for a practical finish that can withstand kids and their mucky hands! Having used the modern emulsion in our kitchen dining area I was impressed with both the finish and the fact it stood up well to our busy household. The paint went onto the walls beautifully and only really needed one coat with minor touching up in places. The finish is perfect and I love the sumptuous depth of colour. Our bedroom now feels like a beautiful retreat I can’t wait to escape to every evening! Thank you farrow and ball!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oval Room Blue bedroom feature wall at night I think Oval Room Blue is one of my favourite F&B colours. Used here as a feature wall in my cottage bedroom alongside Slipper Satin walls and cupboard and wardrobe in Drop Cloth. Brings out the colour of the William Morris bedding beautifully. It’s now such a calm and cosy space. As always, the application and finish is brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep colour coverage It’s a warm blue! I used it with clunch to soften it and I’m so thrilled with the results. Only two coats required to cover a deep red.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super lovely colour I just love this colour. Our decorator wasn't totally sure but came around quickly enough - the tones are wonderful. A blue/green cross that is just lovely. And the pigments are great - you can touch up without having to paint the whole wall again as sometimes you must do with this type of paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous We love F&B paint and this colour has a truly Victorian authenticity to it. Covers well, easy to apply and extremely flat
