Oval Room Blue Colour Review
Colour: light teal blue
Farrow & Ball describe Oval Room Blue as…
the most ‘blackened’ of their blues, giving it a subtly aged feel. Named after the attractively shaped rooms of the late 18th century, it sits perfectly with our popular greys to create depth and balance in either a hall or a darker, cosier family room.
Let’s take a look at some comparisons of similar colours to get a better read of this blue.
Dix Blue No.82 & Stone Blue No.86
Here it seems to look more like a gray blue when sandwiched between Stone Blue and Dix Blue. Oval Room Blue is much less vibrant than those other two colours.
But when you view it in isolation and pair it with specific hues, it seems more bright than you might expect.
