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 251.

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 Stiffkey blue Having always wanted to try farrow and ball paint but felt put off by the price having committed to buying it Along with the dark tone undercoat I can safely say the Colour does match what you see in the paint chart I was nervous about the colour being too dark but it is a lovely colour on the wall

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I’d heard paid it early things but read posts about needing loads of coats etc - I bought a bit more to be sure and did the whole room over white in two coats and it looks fab. Goes on great, fantastic coverage stunning colour. Very happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little goes a long way! I used Farrow and Ball paint for the first time on my staircase. The wood is very old and had layers of paint but the Finnish is beautiful! And one tin did two sets of rails, banisters, skirting and picture rail.
