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 240.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stiffkey Blue I bought this at the start of lockdown and it was delivered without delay and arrived within a few days. I love the colour. Dark but brings the room together as I hoped.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour and easy to apply I bought this last month using only the online colours to go by, it’s a beautiful colour that changes with the light. It was really easy to apply, no spray when using a roller and a little went a long way. I still have nearly half the tin after two coats covering white walls.
