St Giles Blue
St Giles blue, a fabulous kids room colour
St Giles blue works well as an accent colour, especially in a kids room. I love to experiment with colour and wanted to be daring with a chest of drawers in my son's bedroom. Very cheerful end result as you can see from the photo.

This colour makes for an excellent accent wall.
I painted this colour on one wall of my sons west facing room. The other walls we opted to paint in Dimpse which is the perfect grey. The two complment one another beautifully and St. Giles Blue really is quite stricking and adds pop. I myself would not be able to handle this colour in my bedroom however for a 4 1/2 year old it's perfect. I do think it would make a wonderful shade for a gallery, living room or even halls if you are gutsy, something a bit more formal. Our halls are done in Arsnic another fab colour. I will continue to purchase F&B products as I feel they are superior.

Good paint, covers well, very nice extra Matt finish. A little thicker than other f&b paints I've used, so a little harder to apply.

Brilliant colour and a joy to use
a bright highly pigmented blue ideal in a somewhat dingy kitchen.
Applied with the recomended undercoat and two coats of emulsion
the overall effect transformed the room into a room in the South
of France or the Agean.Will definately use Farrow and Ball paint again a pure joy.

Wonderful depth of colour
This has gone in the bathroom where it contrasts beautifully with the much oiled antique pine floor. I found it a little tricky to get a good finish, ( first time using modern emulsion not estate emulsion which might be why) but it now looks great, and has received lots of compliments.

Beautiful colour in apartment where everthing is neutral
My husband picket this for his study in our apartment where every other wall was painted in greys and stones (all F&B). It is a beautiful almost Greek blue. He choose it from paint card and was so disappointed that it was not in the F&B outlet but I ordered in online and it arrived following day. Well worth it.

Despite me ordering the wrong colour the final result was excellent as we have come to expect from Farrow and Ball. Easy to apply with a great depth of colour. However I'm banned from ordering anything in future without it being checked by my partner.

Outstanding, Knockout Colour!
Farrow & Ball St. Giles Blue, the sunlight on the yellow of the Yarrow just radiates on to the fence. So beautiful. Almost tore out this old fence that was weathered and hidden in overgrowth for the past 10 years until we purchased this home last year. After seeing the new colours and inspiration for exterior, I picked St Giles Blue and it is a true winner! We did use the dark tones primer as suggested and the fence only required one coat of the primer and the colour but still produced the most amazing results.
