Pitch Blue Farrow and Ball – The Perfect Colour for Creating a Fun and Uplifting Space

Pitch Blue by Farrow and Ball is a wonderful shade of Cobalt Blue that can be used in a variety of ways to create different looks in your home, depending on the light.

It’s a great choice for bedrooms and living areas. It also works well with other brightly contrasting colours such as yellow, gold, green, and pink. In this article, I’m sharing some of my favourite examples of how Pitch Blue can be used in the home.

This beautiful bedroom by Bluebell Grey shows just how well Pitch Blue can work alongside zesty greens and yellows to create a space that is full of life and energy. The watercolour design of the botanical bedding set creates a wonderful contrast with the Pitch Blue walls. The result is a ‘grown up’ space that’s definitely not boring!

Painting your living room in a bold colour can feel scary, but it can have a huge impact! The Pitch Blue walls in this living room by Hume Sweet Home allow the beautiful framed artworks to ‘pop’ against the blue of the walls. The complimentary orange and yellow accents featured in the fabric of the roman blinds and cushions also help to bring life and energy to the space.

What Colour Goes With Pitch Blue?

If you’re looking for paint colours that go with Pitch Blue, there are a few good options available to you.

Firstly, if you’re planning on painting your trim in a shade of white, then All White and Wevet are both great options.

All White is a pure white that is perfect for using in fun, playful spaces, such as kids bedrooms and living rooms. Wevet is very similar, but has a hint of grey to it. This is better if you’re trying to create a space that’s more calming and serene.

If you’re looking for a colour to use on your walls with Pitch Blue, then my recommendation would be Strong White. It has grey undertones, which work well with Pitch Blue by creating a contrast that’s not too jarring.

Many people, However, choose to paint both their walls and trim in Pitch Blue. This creates a monochromatic look that works really well in homes with period features.

In this case, you can add colour within your accessories. Golds, neutrals, greens, pinks, oranges, and reds all work well alongside Pitch Blue when used in small amounts. Try choosing fabrics with a white or off-white background, and a colourful design to create a sophisticated space that’s full of life and energy. Personally, I love the bedding designs from Bluebell Grey. The floral curtains from Dunelm in Pink or Blue are also a great choice to create an uplifting space.
