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 349.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour I bought this to paint in my kitchen to go with All White also from farrow and ball, love the colour it's a grey toned blue, quite dark but really nice against white or beige. Great quality paint and a lovely satin feel once finished, I used the modern emulsion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sophisticated blue! From a bog standard Magnolia room to a sophisticated blue. This colour has totally transformed the plant room and has created a dramatic living room space. It needed two coats but went on extremely well and the modern emulsion gives a beautiful soft Sheen when the light hits it. I used the Eggshell finish on the shelves and the colour matches the wall perfectly. Now I’m just trying to think of something to do with the paint that is left as it’s too good to sit in a paint pot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage and colour First time user of F&B paint but heard about the great reputation. I was not disappointed as the colour depth is amazing and exactly as described by F&B. It is a "very matt" finish, which is what we wanted in our conservatory that gets plenty of light. The paint is easy to apply and gives great coverage. Would highly recommend use of F&B undercoat and two top coats. I am a definite convert to F&B.
