St Giles Blue


A vivid blue

This clean and vivid blue is inspired by a colour originally found in the hall at 17th century St Giles House in Wimborne St Giles, Dorset. Its striking blue hue cannot fail to make you smile and will hold its own even in the darkest of places, so is often used as an accent in the back of bookshelves. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: All White

St Giles Blue is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 61.

Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odour, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. They are also certified child- and baby-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021).

Exclusions: Casein Distemper, Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat, Wood Knot & Resin Blocking Primer & Undercoat, and Metal Primer & Undercoat.


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.


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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so much love for my bathroom now I first thought I wanted Cooks Blue for the small south facing bathroom but it wasn't exuberant enough. I thought St. Giles Blue would be too bright, but it's perfect. Gives the lift I was looking for. Wish I had listened to the consultant who suggested using all over including ceiling but went with her suggestion of cabbage white on ceiling instead.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fabulous paint and a great warm colour too. This blue is a gorgeous colour and suits the children's room which is south facing. The sunlight makes it glow and is an excellent contrast to the All White paintwork in eggshell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Blue We were looking for a bright blue, with depth, to give life to our tired, period solid oak front door and light up the small dark entrance. F & B St Giles Blue was the perfect, beautiful choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from St Giles Blue - warm & vibrant We are already getting much joy out of this wonderful colour. The rich pigment and slightly chalky finish of Farrow and Ball’s paint is unlike any other. You get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheering We’ve used this on stairs leading up to a spare bedroom in the eaves painted all over in Cabbage White. Both colours are great and the St Giles Blue cheers me up as soon as I open the door to the stairs. Looks crisp with Wimborne White woodwork

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, happy color! We purchased St Giles Blue to paint a do-it-yourself corn hole set, and it turned out great. The color makes us smile, and the finish (exterior eggshell) is wonderful. Highly recommend!
