St Giles Blue

No.280

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 4.7 out of 5 by 22.

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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy colour We’re really pleased with the feel of this shade. We actually painted our hall in it just before house viewings- going against Estate Agent logic. But our hall is dull and dark in white or magnolia and in this shade you wouldn’t think that issue existed. The only slight criticism is the paint could be thicker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing depth of colour My 8yr old chose this for is bedroom, and I was skeptical of how bright I thought it might be. However his judgement was spot on, it looks great, and manages to be both deep and bright at the same time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful complex color I used this in three places: an accent wall in my home office, around the fireplace, and the interior of the front door. It absolutely makes my fireplace the focus point of the room! Everyone coming into the room comments on how beautiful the blue is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful on floors We just bought a Georgian townhouse and on moving day we discovered to our dismay it had the most awful dirty carpets which were beyond cleaning. Ripped them up to reveal the original floorboards, dirty but in good condition. Ordered paint on Tuesday and it arrived on Friday. We picked St Giles Blue for our son's room. Gave them a quick going over with a hand sander and three coats of St Giles Blue and 24 hours later it was completely transformed. It is so soft, bright and beautiful. Every cloud has a St Giles Blue lining!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly the colour I wanted. I was planning to hang pictures on the wall opposite my bed, but I like this blue so much, that I've left the wall unadorned.
