Pitch Blue

No.220

A lively cobalt blue

This strong cobalt blue, with its dose of black pigment, takes its name from the dark sticky tar often used in roofing. Pitch Blue has an almost purple feel to it and is extremely lively in south facing rooms, especially when contrasted with bright shades such as All White. However, it looks more sober and rich when used in areas deprived of light or those lit in the evening by candles. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Blackened

Pitch Blue is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 63.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend this colour I absolutely love the colour of this paint , it made my bedroom feel so inviting and sumptuous. The quality of the paint , of course , is amazing and I am now thinking of the which room to paint next ! Delivery was relatively speedy even though it was in lockdown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pitch (Blue) perfect! Our bedroom was a lighter blue for a number of years which matched our old curtains. My wife made new curtains and we intended to repaint the room with another shade of blue to tie in with the new curtain pattern but work and life in general delayed that for a few more years. Furlough came along and time was no longer a problem and luckily we found Pitch Blue matt emulsion was the perfect tone for the room. Our flat is Edwardian and the end result looks almost like the catalogue picture!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely shade of blue. My tongue and groove panelling in the bathroom is this colour but the wood has stretched over time so the sample pot was just to patch up really but I still love the colour. My favourite of yours is Pidgeon which I had my front door painted in. Many manufacturers try to copy Farrow and Ball colours but they never somehow succeed .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour I bought this for my bedroom and am v pleased I did. The colour is dramatic and calming, but still warm. I'm not sure the undercoat added anything though. It was hard to work with and I ran out before I'd finished the room (the pitch blue went much further). Even though I ran out of undercoat halfway across a wall, you can't see the difference between where I did and didn't use it after 2 coats of the blue (walls were white before).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile colour Took years to choose this particular blue and it has proved to be worth the wait! Everything works with it and the room has become my sanctuary.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour, lovely paint I bought this to paint a garden gate. The colour is gorgeous and looks different in different lights. It is also so lovely to paint with and gives a great finish.
