Oval Room Blue

Oval Room Blue 4.8 5 32 32
Quality paint, stunning colour and finish. After some deliberation I bought oval room blue for our open plan living/dining room. The colour is fantastic. It's really restful and muted and looks really classy. The finish is perfect. I've used farrow and ball before although I usually go for the lighter colours. I'm so glad I took the plunge and went darker. Farrow and Ball paint is a bit expensive but you do get what you pay for and I will definately be buying it again. November 23, 2014
Très belle couleur et bonne facilité d'application Ma première expérience avec Farrow&ball et je ne suis pas déçue. Le rendu de la couleur est parfait en emulsion moderne: rendu mat mais lessivable. Je recherchais un bleu acier grisé qui rappelle les couleur d'autrefois, oval room blue est parfait. November 19, 2014
The best paint on the market I love my new shutters that are painted in Oval Room Blue. Farrow and Ball is not widely available in Italy but I had no problem using the online order form and the paint was delivered within a few days. My painter was thrilled with the final result, and informed me that it was so easy to get a good finish with the product. November 17, 2014
Happy Excellent quality paint and a pleasure to use. Coverage excellent. Oval Room is quite a sombre colour and rather wish I had chosen the next shade lighter. October 12, 2014
Interesting smoky blue grey I liked this colour a lot, particularly used as a backdrop for scarlet, orange and mustard textiles. It has quite a lot of blue in it, which builds its intensity over a whole wall or walls, but the elements of grey mean that it is a comfortable colour to live with and enhances other colours rather than competing with them. It does genuinely seem to change subtly in different lights. It covered well and was easy to use, with a lovely depth of pigmentation. October 6, 2014
Stunning colour Looks beautiful in small, not-too-light downstairs bathroom. Has come up darker than might be expected from the website and sample pot - which we wanted anyway. Highly recommended. June 26, 2014
Stunning colour This colour has been used on exterior doors with the recommended undercoat and is a beautiful restful vintage blue. Coverage was very impressive and I appear to have ordered too much paint so I am looking for other things to paint with it - garden furniture may be next.... May 6, 2014
Cheap paint isn't worth it. Love Farrell and Ball, you see nuances every day. We were a bit rushed and painted over not quite dry silk satin so had some crackling. Worth the money every time though. April 2, 2014
