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 174.

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.


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 5 out of 5 by from Samples are the best. Ordered 4 samples and did test patches on the wall. They are looked good, but De Nimes won the day. Painter finished yesterday. One coat primer and two coats of Estate Emulsion. Stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour found via zoom I ordered a sample pot of this after seeing it in a friend's living room on zoom! I wasn't disappointed. It is a calming and at the same time intense blue-green which varies beautifully in natural light. Love it so much I've ordered a sample to try in a neighbouring room where it actually looks quite different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised by how much I love this color! I ummed and ahhed whether to purchase this colour for our on suite bathroom. Why did I spend so much time agonizing over it? The colour is absolutely fantastic. The Modern Emulsion is a dream to use and the Stone Blue No. 86 is bold and fun. Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Colour I would agree with the paint description, it is a gorgeous lively blue. It has really lifted our hallway and injected some personality. The pigment is great. Only two coats were needed and the finish is perfect. After giving it a lot of thought I went with Modern rather than Estate and I'm glad i did for the hallway, with two young children it's the practical choice, but actually I really love the sheen so it wasn't much of a sacrifice really!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour and great paint coverage We bought Stone Blue exterior eggshell for front and back doors and side gate. Two coats was enough and i still have half the tin left - incredible. The colour goes on so well, and saves lots of time because the pigment is strong, only 2 coats were needed. It also dries very quickly, which is handy because i didnt want the front door open all day long on a busy road. After 2 hours the door could be closed - and no damage to paintwork on the door. Brilliant. It looks really pretty in the sunlight.
