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 166.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful depth of colour. Really lovely colour. Changes tone as the light changes. Chose modern emulsion. Went on well. Slightly shiny under artificial light but that's the payoff for making it little boy proof (ie washable). Looks lovely against brilliant white. Really pleased

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Richness I have been thinking of using this colour for sometime, but had reservations over using it in a big space. Finally took the plunge and used it for a much needed update in my lounge. It looks amazing. I love the richness and sense of depth it gives. It's great in the evening as the light changes. It transforms the space into a cosy atmosphere inviting you in. It's drama makes everything set against it come into its own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dramatic, yet cosy Your photos on the website are very exact to the actual paint - which I love. Have teamed Stiffkey Blue with Purbeck Stone in our new bathroom (in a very old house, hence the quirky layout) and it's exactly the look I was after. Looks amazing in day light, but the colour is so restful when having a long soak in candlelight.
