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 77.

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.

Every one of our 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seriously good Bought this to paint a wooden beamed ceiling, primed and then used this paint. Never used F&B before , my goodness the quality is so worth the price, a pleasure to use, has even been admired by my work colleagues via Zoom. It depth of colour which is subtle but also deep and exudes quality. We will always use F&B from now on, and have already ordered Farrows cream for the walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfectly named This paint is a grey blue and it’s a lovely colour. We didn’t use it because it was a bit too blue for what we wanted but would look lovely in the bedroom. Or anywhere…
