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 112.

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 Very good coverage After having purchased The Hague blue farrow and ball paint, we were so impressed with the quality and the coverage, we can’t believe we hadn’t used this brand sooner we wouldn’t use anything else now, we then went on to do our hall way in oval room blue and are now going through the whole house

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! This is a beautiful and refreshing colour. As with all F&B colours it's subtle changes in colour to the sun and light is delightful. We would recommend this colour for most rooms and I hope you love it as much as we do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick drying and great coverage! First time using Farrow and Ball paint and it won’t be my last. Stunning colour and a high quality finish - loved painting my door and and delighted either colour. I am now the envy of my street!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sublime blue grey Having used the tester pot wehad our kitchen cabinets painted on the very sophisticated colour whilst in the highlands for a week. Big risk as communication was pretty tricky but it has surpassed our expectations. It’s v grown up and expensive looking, we paired it with string on the walls and the contrast is v pleasing. Lovely finish and easy to wipe down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour Two years ago I painted my living room using oval room blue. I still love it. It looks great, timeless and elegant. However I believe it looks better in sunny rooms rather than in darker spaces.

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.
