Stone Blue


A lively blue

This warm and timeless blue is named after the indigo pigment which was often imported in lumps in the 18th century. Stone Blue’s lively and saturated colour can be used alongside warmer tones such as Pelt to create an inviting vintage look, or the cooler Mole's Breath for a cleaner, more contemporary feel. When contrasted with Dimpse woodwork, however, it feels both distinguished and familiar. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Strong White

Stone Blue is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 152.

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.


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 No blues with Stone Blue! I had to buy this without purchasing a sample first, as I had a very small timeframe for the room to be painted, but from the website I thought it would be perfect for the room, which is a bedroom, and I thought the colour would add a relaxing finish which would look good in any light. The colour came and it looks exactly as I thought - it went onto the walls beautifully and I am thrilled with the final result. The coverage and the sheer quality of the product are both excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful, warm and calming I bought this paint to redecorate a study and was pleased to find a calming blue colour that’s also warm. Love how the shades change slightly in different lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Farrow & Ball Stone Blue . Love this colour Having used Farrow & Ball Pavilion Grey in other parts of the house I knew the paint quality was good and it goes on the walls so easily . Love this colour just perfect . It has a really clean fresh aura to it and provides a great contrast to the brown leather chairs and my little brown bears

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour This was our first paint purchase from Farrow and Ball and we were really pleased that we spent a little extra for what is a great quality paint. It went on very easily and the second coat resulted in a beautiful depth of colour which really makes our living room look good
