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 149.

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 Beautiful colour The stiffkey blue is a lovely colour and looks fabulous in my bathroom

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely rich colour Bought Stiffkey blue to add colour to a bland hallway and staircase. It’s a lovely deep colour without making the space too dark, love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful depth A rich, deep colour, which we’ve used in our whole living room and on this occasion we bought another small tin to paint the radiator in the same Stiffkey Blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour - high quality finish Yet another outstanding colour from F&B - easy to apply, finishes beautifully. Used on kitchen cabinets to freshen up everything, and combined with Ammonite on the walls and Pure White on the ceiling - makes for a clean, stylish finish at a fraction of the price of a new kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic colour and coverage I purchased a pre painted piece of furniture that used FB stiffkey Blue, loved it so much we decided to paint another piece to match. Order came really quickly and packaged very well - arrived in good condition no spills !! The colour match is perfect with the pre painted piece. Coverage is great and easy to clean up afterwards too

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.
