5 Ways With: Hague Blue

5 Ways With: Hague Blue

hague blue blog

In all our dealings with Hague Blue (and we’ve had a lot) we’ve never seen a surface it didn’t suit. This deliciously deep blue has worked its magic on everything from front doors to fire surrounds and, thanks to the creativity of Farrow & Ball's social media followers, it shows no signs of stopping.

Hague Blue is known for being a deep dark blue. This strong shade takes its name from the fantastically colored woodwork much used by the Dutch, and still works wonderfully on cabinetry, trim and accents such as doors, ceilings and furniture. The green undertones of this timeless, deep and dramatic blue means it sits as happily outside as it does in small dark rooms.

In natural sunlight, Hague Blue appears lighter and more muted. This gives the color an altogether different character. Against the deep blue, a fresh green appears even brighter, and mimics the greenery of the surrounding countryside.

Takeaway: To recreate the look for your own great outdoors, look no further than Farrow & Ball's weather-resistant Exterior Eggshell finish.
