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 4.7 out of 5 by 49.

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 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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product and good service When in doubt under a pot. The samples confirm a 100% certainty on the colour to chose. Small price to pay for the right choice. Would like to se paint manufacturers provide a simple on line application which allows you to 'try paint options' in a mock up real living environment and select colour options to see matches (woodwork/doors/walls & ceiling. Kitchen /bathroom designers provide this type of facility to get idea of layouts etc. before decide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect in every way We had taken weeks/ months to choose the perfect colour and finally decided on skylight. It has such depth and can look so different in different lights. We sit and look at it for ages, delighted with our choice!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most beautiful shade of blue We painted our master bedroom with this cool, tranquil blue... feels like we are in a 5 star retreat! Love how it shows off different shades depending how the light moves across our room! Brilliant quality paint! Always a big fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this!! I wanted a pale blue grey for my north facing kitchen. I am so happy that I got skylight, it is the exact colour. It does change with the light, at night time it goes a very, very blue/green which I love. It is so fresh looking and I would also probably describe it as being quite vintage as well. The paint itself is a dream to work with, thick, with no runs or splatters. It is so worth the extra bit money!! Perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour - lasts well. This is a beautiful grey-blue, which blends in well with duck egg blue curtains and cushions. We used this colour in our main living room when we moved in 9 years ago; after some building work, we needed to redecorate and we used the same colour as we liked it so much. Despite large south/south west facing windows, the original colour had not faded. Very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from don't be put off by first coat As this went on, I was very disappointed, it was difficult to see and very pale - I was considering buying another colour. However it was very different when it had dried and second coat made it exactly as it looked on the colour chart and exactly what I wanted. We have painted the doors in the hall and it is wonderful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from delicate shade Just finished our hall with Borrowed Light above the dado, Skylight below and All White gloss on the dado and other paintwork to offset the flatness of the emulsion. It looks even better than I thought. As the light filters through the door and hits the shades they change, blend and contrast in lovely combinations.
