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 266.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this paint 3 weeks ago. It arrived so quickly and conveniently on a rainy day so it got painted the moment it arrived! Went on very easily and colour was just as I expected

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Colour We bought this colour for the smallest room in the house and we could not be happier with the colour. Painted on the walls and the ceiling, it creates a real statement as well as being warm and rich.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour Purchased this paint for my sons bedroom renovation... I was torn between this colour and Hague blue but the almost murky deep tones of Stiffkey blue won me over . I decided to pair with another brand of grey which is similar to blackened and the whole room looks fabulous! I wanted a huge feature wall but actually ended up with 2 as I created a desk wall and used it for that wall and am really pleased I did .
