Stiffkey Blue

No.281

An inky navy

This inky blue is named after the Norfolk beach where the mud, along with the cockles, share a particular deep navy hue. Although traditional in feel, Stiffkey Blue is often used as an alternative to Down Pipe to create a richly dramatic space with a more contemporary finish. When used in well lit areas of the home it will appear much bluer, working wonderfully when contrasted with Ammonite. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Shadow White

Stiffkey Blue is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 127.

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 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

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 Beautiful colour Been thinking about this colour for a while and I’m so glad I took the chance and used it alongside cornforth white. Even though it a dark colour, my lounge looks so bright and fresh. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning in Coastal kitchen Having previously used this colour in our Northumbrian Dining Room (see previous review by Jessthedog) we choose it again for the new kitchen in our island Cottage. We used Estate Eggshell over dark tones undercoat to paint our handmade kitchen and toned with cream tongue and groove walls. The colour complements and tones with the ever changing coastal light. I’m now planning to make new sash windows and plan to use exterior eggshell in the same Stiffkey Blue.
