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 106.

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 Perfect for my room Used this as a feature wall in a room with little natural light. I used F&B All White on the other walls and ceiling to reflect the available white. The skirting boards are in skimming stone estate eggshell .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely rich colour I wanted a stronger blue colour on the woodwork in our bathroom that wasn't a cold blue but still looked fresh and this was perfect and we're so happy with the result. The white shelves are done in All White too i love using Farrow and Ball eggshell paints as they always do such a lovely finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour I used this to paint the door, skirtings and radiator in our bedroom. It complements our Morris Golden Lily wallpaper perfectly and creates a great finish to the room. The paint was really easy to use, provided good coverage, even on bright white gloss painted wood, and really easy to clean. I now want to paint the doors and skirtings in lots of other room as the effect is so good.

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!
