Nairobi, from the Maasai phrase “Enkare Nyrobi,” translates to “cool water.” This fresh, light blue definitely reminds us of cool waters, cloudless skies, and a magical red carpet moment that put this heavenly blue hue in the spotlight.

Great quality, but turned out way more grey than expected.

I had no problems with the technical aspects of this paint, it went on beautifully in a single coat and performed well with some challenging cut-ins. They also aren't kidding about this being low-odor, I had previously painted part of this room with a competing brand that advertised it's offering as low-odor, and by comparison Clare's paint was barely detectable. Where I was surprised with was how grey the finished color was on overcast days or in artificial light. I live in the cloud pacific northwest so sunny days are a rarity, for us this color ended up looking like an extension of the grey skies and we ended up going with something else. That said, it's a lovely grey blue that will complement a lot of decors, just be sure to match expectations with your lighting conditions.

Looks better in natural light than artificial light

We chose Nairobi Blue for our kids' bedroom walls after comparing various shades of blue with Clare paint swatches. It's a very pretty blue in natural light. The paint rolls on smoothly and there's virtually no odor, especially when compared to the generic primer we used. We turned on the room light to see better when we were painting and realized the paint looked more green than blue in artificial light, which was disappointing because we really wanted blue. This is still the case after the paint has dried. The color is beautiful when it's daytime and natural light lights up the room. We're ok with it when we have to use the room lights instead. In retrospect, I think Frozen might have been a better choice - more of a sky blue that's a lighter shade closer to white. For perspective, we used this color for three of four walls with the last wall being an accent wall with a wallpaper mural. The mural will be dark and a lighter color would provide a better contrast. Nairobi Blue is very pretty but it's more water-like than sky-like if that makes sense.

Beautiful way of brightening a dark room!

I used this in a small dark room. Even though it's a cool shade, it creates a serene, upbeat feel. I absolutely love it!
