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 383.

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 Uplifting So very happy with our new kitchen walls. The blue makes the whole room more grounded and reflects light, which the previously grey walls didn’t.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour I bought this for my living room, I love F&B paint it covers beautifully, I used two coats and the finish is gorgeous! The room is 22x 14 and I used one large pot. My house is Regency and the F&B colours really suit the period, but this colour would look just as good in a modern house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour This colour looks fantastic in any light. I painted 2 walls of my bedroom in this in a south facing room with 2 large windows. I love it! Went on easily. The only thing I’d say is that it dries quickly so any mistakes need rectifying straight away.
