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 4.6 out of 5 by 141.

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 Richard I am very happy with the paint I am going to order another tin

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Statement colour to a cottage wall,love it! Changed the colour pallet to a South facing room, on a North facing wall. Needed a paint that would handle high traffic in a cosy holiday cottage. We were not disappointed, this elegant, bold but restful blue in eggshell has given us the perfect solution to a challenging wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful navy blue I painted an accent wall in my home office in Stiffkey Blue and I absolutely love it. We don't have any other dark walls in our home so I wanted something dramatic and this colour certainly delivered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deeply Deliciously Blue Probably the most expensive paint we've gotten for the house but oh so worth it. Couldn't be happier with our purchase. We were a bit scared when the first layer of paint didn't quite have the coverage as described, but the second layer went on like butter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique tone The colour and tone cannot be matched with any other range. The quality of finish, the feel and how it goes on, is like nothing else. Top quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vibrant paint Stiffkey blue in modern finish has transformed our kitchen. This is a wonderful dark blue that is perfect against the new limestone Corion worktops and partridge grey units. I used mid tone undercoat followed by 2 coats of the blue. This paint is wipeable making it ideal for kitchens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen Transformation Bought to update a tired kitchen in a house I just moved into. 1 coat of the undercoat and 2 coats using a sprayer. Cupboards and drawers look like new
