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: Ammonite
Rated 5 out of 5 by sophiart from Unique and exciting warm blue Stone Blue was the first Farrow and Ball paint I've ever purchased, after seeing gorgeous pics shared on Instagram both from the brand and from regular users. I just knew it would create a gorgeous glow and visual interest in a small northeast bedroom with dormers and other angles, and I was absolutely right. It's a middle value, strong but complex/grounded blue with a green undertone. I use the room as an office, and I've gotten many compliments from remote coworkers on my color choice. It's the first time in decades I just went for a color without testing, and I'm thrilled with the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bella B from Beautiful Blue We painted our hall from Lamproom Grey (which was lovely) to Stone Blue as we needed a change and wanted a rich deep colour. Our hall is a typical long Victorian hall with very little natural light. This blue is super with bright lights, or dark and cosy at night with softer lamp light. I chose Stony Ground for the woodwork so it was a softer contrast to the sharper white of the original woodwork paint.
