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 42.

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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour for nursery We bought this tester pot to try for our gender neutral nursery (despite others convincing us it would look like a boys room). The shade is beautiful and we have gone ahead and painted one wall incase it would make the room too dark... we will now be painting the other walls because we love it so much! Used dark undertones x2 coats and x3 coats of pitch blue as on 2nd coat the dark grey still came through slightly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect colour This colour, Pitch Blue, was chosen to go with our Dove Grey gloss cupboards (from Howdens) and a black metallic glass splash back. We think it goes really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour Although it took three coats, pitch blue looks perfect with Ammonite to make my little boys space themed bedroom. It's a strong colour but doesn't look too dark in the small space.
