Pitch Blue

No. 220  

Pitch Blue 4.6 5 15 15
Just wonderful! After buying about 4000 tester pots (we were going to have grey!) to repaint our small bathroom, we chose Wevet for one wall and went mad by choosing Pitch Blue for the other. (There are two walls hideously tiled in white, one on the long bath side wall and one on the sink/window wall. I'm definitely not a fan of 'feature' walls and normally avoid them, but at the last minute decided to go with Wevet on the remaining long wall and Pitch Blue on the remaining short wall with the door in it (it doesn't photograph well or I'd have uploaded a picture). Well, both colours look fab but the star of the show is the Pitch Blue. It looks absolutely fantastic. It has made the white tiles, which I hated, look like a class act and the contrast with the Wevet is perfect too. The blue is the kind you want to eat and keep looking at. It's not at all cold in our view. A really cosy, warm feeling, yet crisp, classy, and giving a really 'clean' finish with the white. It feels a very versatile colour to me and I think it would be great in a bedroom or on a ceiling in a bedroom even and would look gorgeous on all four walls in a cosy dining room, perfect by candlelight, or as a dreaded feature wall in a sitting room. Far from closing the room in (being a dark colour), it has made the bathroom look bigger contrasted with the white. It's gloriously deep. It's now my favourite F&B colour, followed by Cabbage White and Plummet, then Shaded White. It would look perfect in a 'minimalist' or modern flat that's otherwise white! We love the Wevet too - it's the perfect white for us as it's not a super-bright white, yet is a very white white, very matt, if anything the tiniest tiniest hint of greyish blue but hardly discernable. We used Modern Emulsion of Wevet on the wooden tongue and groove bath panel and it looks very smart indeed. It's striking, but not 'in your face'. November 27, 2014
Brilliant colour As always the quality was excellent and F&B certainly have the best range of colours August 14, 2014
Magical Fantastic colour. Exceeded my expectations. Would be even better on a wall that didn't get any sun. I have only used it to do two feature walls alongside Parma Grey. A whole room would be spectacular. July 7, 2014
Gorgeous colour Needs 2/3 coats before it dries perfectly solid. Worth the effort though as the result is a stunning flat Matt lagoon like colour, with warmth June 4, 2014
Beautiful Blue The first coat was stripe-y and thin, the second coat remedied the trouble. This is a deep, rich blue: I love the color and still hope to use it someplace in our home. But it was too dark for the areas we tested. March 7, 2014
Poor coverage and finish Disappointed as first time i have used a gloss gloss like this.like farrow and Ball but shame no traditional; blue.Used Crown instead August 14, 2013
Gorgeous, I use it over and over I have used this color in my bedroom that last two times we moved. It is gorgeous- it envelops the room and doesn't seem as 'traditional' as you might think. At night, it makes the room feel cozy and cocoon-like. In the day, it is elegant and a little moody. It's wonderful. August 10, 2013
No exceptions: The Best Paint on God's 'Folly Green' Earth! Farrow and Ball is my paint of choice when nothing short of perfection will do. It goes on beautifully, covers like a Winter's night down comforter and has a depth that other paints envy. Keep doing what is obviously a labour of love and technical prowess. I would tell you that I am a customer for life, but. wouldn't that put me in a poor bargaining position for future promotions and specials? JHS July 16, 2013
