Stone Blue

No.86

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 74.

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 3 out of 5 by from Unusual for farrow and ball Bought this paint as the tester card was exactly the colour in my blinds. I’ve use farrow and ball paints throughout my house and the guide has always been spot on. This paint... nice as it is... is much brighter than the test card seems to suggest. I wanted a more muted ‘flat’ blue. Still nice... just notwgat I was hoping for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from very good The color is very nice - it arouses interest. Unfortunately, it does not hide the best (it's very difficult to paint a white background), I had to put 3 layers   In contrast to this color, the color 'Shaded white' (I used in another room and concealed great)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic paint Farrow and Ball paint is outstanding It’s application is so easy and smooth and the final results are so pleasing. While it is expensive, the finished results are well worth it. I woulld not use anything else. The choice of colours they have available is excellent, and particularly liked the wide range of shades of white the provide.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strange colour This is the final room of a full house renovation. I have used F and B paint throughout the house and am very happy with the quality, application and result. I always buy the sample pots first ( my garage looks like a mini f and b paint shop!). However on this occasion on purchasing a full pot the colour is different to that of the sample pot. The sample pot dried( on the same wall ) with a slightly greener, calming tinge. On application to the whole wall this stone blue is a strange colour that makes me think of blue bottle flies, not what I was wanting. I have attached a photo. The paint looks better in the photo than on the wall!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stone Blue Unfortunately when we tried this colour on a sample area the colour was a lot brighter than shown on the website; will not be using this. Have tried other F&B colours in the past and been perfectly happy with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous rich blue It took 3/4 coats, the first looking patchy but it is a really lovely rich blue, used the modern emulsion which I love because it wipes clean so well and has a softness to it. Just love this colour, just wish I could use it in more rooms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stoned Blue I absolutely love this colour, again Farrow and Ball have managed to create a colour that is bright but not cold, warm but not dull, it looks amazing on our walls when teamed with any white on the woodwork, I am very much looking forward to accessorising the bedroom where we have used this estate emulsion on the walls. It is a very peaceful colour, and we are slowly working our way through refurbishing a large Georgian house where we are using Farrow and Ball colours throughout, I am so glad we have decided to use Farrow & Ball as there is nothing to compare to their products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful tone of blue Used this colour for our porch, previously pillar box red. It changed the whole feel of the room, it was lighter more relaxed and equally had depth of tone. We were delighted with the quality of the paint and all our visitors have commented on it
