Skylight

No.205

A pale and traditional blue

This pale blue grey takes its name from the soft natural light that often pours through ceiling skylights. However, it is less reflective than Borrowed Light, reading as a definite cool blue when used in small spaces but becoming paler and greyer when used in larger areas. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: All White

Skylight is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 67.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it's lovely colour for the bedroom. Paid bf to do the job. It was the winner after we tried 5 different colour. I was worried that it might be a bit too cold but it looked fine and doesn't feel cold on the wall. It's nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just beautiful I bought this for the spare bedroom and as soon as l saw it on the walls l loved it. In different lights it is different shades going from a definite grey to a very washed out blue. The paint is great to put on and good coverage as it was going over pale grey l only needed one coat. I liked it so much l have now done my landing staircase and hallway. My landing was very dark with no windows and this colour makes it look so different, as with all Farrow and Ball paints l will definitely use them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour for a badly lit room I used this for the cellar with a low ceiling and a small window. The walls were in a bad condition so I wallpapered most in William Morris wallpaper but left the area around the window to be painted in skylight to create a sense of more light hopefully. It worked and looks good!
