Blue Ground

No. 210  

Blue Ground 5 5 8 8
Statement and balance The use of a bold colour (when placed on one wall as a 'statement' to shades of white) from the F&B is always a positive outcome. In this instance we combined this on one wall in a kitchen with Wimborne White on the other three. Using this same colour to form the background colour to a glass splash screen to the range cooker creates a linking theme. The paint itself is a pleasure to lay while fine line painting is always easier with quality paints. June 19, 2013
A lovely bright colour. A deep, cheerful colour without being overwhelming. Covered well. May 20, 2013
Jolly colour, worked well in kitchen Wanted something to match fired earth glass tiles and this has worked really well - using strong white for woodwork and down pipe on the door. Comes through as a blue-green. Used the modern emulsion for wiping. Could have done with a smaller tin! May 13, 2013
Farrow and Ball excellent when trying to match paint for different surfaces Used this paint for our new interiors shop. Couldnt buy a paint off the shelf for interior wood, exterior wood and masonary all in the same colour so turned to Farrow and Ball. We have used there paints before but this was a first for their masonary paint. Blue Ground looks fab inside and out and in the 10 days weve been open everyone has remarked on the colour. Well worth the money. May 3, 2013
Beauiful Used this with the co ordinating bumble bee wallpaper .beautiful April 11, 2013
Very good quality Great quality paint, we used this on a solid wood cupboard and it allows you to still see the grain, which I really like. Thought this might come out a bit darker, it looked more teal on the website but it's lighter more turquoise. April 9, 2013
beautiful dining room This is the most loveliest blue ever and looks stunning in my dining room. Everyone who visits is full of compliments. January 22, 2013
Versatile Color I have used this color twice as accent walls for my home and my office AND as a ceiling color for 3 rooms in my home. I love how versatile Blue Ground is. I used Pelt on the walls under this sublime blue ceiling in my living room. I am using Babouche on the walls in my dining room with this color on the ceiling. I am totally in love with F&B paint.
