Farrow & Ball's nine new paint colours suit both period and contemporary interiors
Master paint and paper craftsmen Farrow & Ball has launched a new range of nine richly pigmented colours, inspired by Britain’s spectacular landscape and architecture. These innovative hues have distinctive depth of colour and are ideal to enhance an existing scheme or add an unexpected accent to both contemporary and traditional interiors. Even better, each comes with a romantic name and an intriguing story.
Take Dimpse, for example, this cool architectural grey is named after the West Country’s word for fading light at twilight, and complements Farrow & Ball’s other cool greys to create a colour family that’s perfect for minimalist living. Pair it with Stiffkey Blue-a mesmerizing shade of grey blue that recalls the hue of the mud found at Stiffkey beach, in Norfolk-for a visually enticing accent.
Grey and neutral tones dominate the new range, with the fossil-inspired Ammonite, the stronger Purbeck Stone and soft, white Wevet-the old Dorset term for spider’s web-creating a new family of greys with a strong Gustavian feel, while the quirkily named Mole’s Breath is a versatile drab that works well with rich colours.
If you prefer brighter statements, the deliciously christened Yellowcake is a sunny tone inspired by 1960 interiors that’s perfect for colour blocking. St Giles Blue, reminiscent of the clean, strong blue hue found in the hall of 17th-century St Giles House in Wimborne St Giles, Dorset, provides a wonderful contrast to subtle whites like Farrow & Ball’s Cabbage White or brights like Charlotte’s Locks, while Nancy’s Blushes is a pretty pink that pleasantly balances All White or Black Blue hues.
