It would be for a chimney breast wall in a living room (I know feature walls are frowned on as naff but I like 'em!). Any recs for quite a deep petrol blue?? Room has grey sofas. Thanks!

dulux denim drift? Might be too grey but comes out nice and dark if that is what you are after. Or are you wanting a blue-green colour?

Thanks Junior. I had a look and it is a bit grey - yes a proper blue-green would be fab!

B&Q have one called nirvana and it's a deep gorgeous colour.

Valspar will make up the exact shade you want. I got some beautiful deep blue / green testers made up in B&Q the other week.

Thanks both! Can I ask where you are planning to use your paint?

Ooh nirvana is gorgeous - exactly what I had in mind!

It really is a gorgeous colour, I'm planning on using it on my hallway walls.

Have a look at F&B Hague Blue and Stiffkey Blue, and Little Greene Hicks Blue and Deep Space Blue.

Inchyra blue?

Second F&B Hague and Stiffkey Blues. Stiffkey slightly greener. Inchyra blue is also lovely but even greener still.

We have Stiffkey Blue in our bedroom - I love it. It gets commented on a lot!

Also Dulux Breton Blue, gorgeous paint ❤

Is petrol blue just teal under another name?

ItsJustACompanyPolicyOfMine Mon 06-Mar-17 13:36:56

More recs, thanks. No JeNeSuis it isn't to my mind. Teal is a lighter colour. I think petrol blue is a much deeper darker inky blue-green.

Breton Blue is gorgeous but I wouldn't describe it as a petrol blue. It's a very deep navy.

I love Inchyra Blue. I'm itching to find a place to use it.
