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 157.

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.


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 Sophisticated colour - Update on Drawing Room Blue I bought this to update our bedroom (previously drawing room blue, which I loved). Stiffkey blue is a lot more grey and it looks a lot more sophisticated. The paint quality is phenomenal, as with all F&B products. I used estate emulsion on both walls and woodwork as I wanted a super matt look and I’m really pleased with the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stiffkey blue living room I bought Stiffkey Blue and matched it as suggested with Cornforth White (on the other three walls) and Pubeck Stone (on the ceiling). I decided to paint the cupboards and shelves blue for maximum impact. I've been really happy with the over all effect and we've had lots of compliments on the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Colour I recently painted my entire bedroom in this shade and it is the perfect deep blue. The room feels cosy and it contrasts perfectly with the cinder rose accents.
