NEW FARROW & BALL COLOR This color was found in an 18th-century Georgian Hamstone farmhouse in Yeabridge, Somerset, when the original gun cupboard was removed. Although untouched for many years, it was still astonishingly reminiscent of the lush grass that surrounds the house. This uncomplicated, fresh 'avocado' green works in contemporary settings as well as period properties. It has a little more yellow than Breakfast Room Green but a little less than Churlish Green. Use it with Stiffkey…
NEW FARROW & BALL COLOR This gray pink has a romantic feel inspired by the chiffon gowns in which ladies traditionally brushed their hair in boudoirs. Created by giving the softest of pinks a big dose of grey, this color has the ability to feel traditional and modern at the same time. It works perfectly in combination with any of our Contemporary Neutrals, and with Brassica and Brinjal.
NEW FARROW & BALL COLOR This color brings to mind city suits made from the flat woven fabric Worsted, so named after the Norfolk village where the yarn was originally woven. For devotees of our Easy Neutrals family, this is stronger in tone than its counterpart Purbeck Stone but lighter than Mole's Breath. It's the perfect background to make clean accent colors pop.
NEW FARROW & BALL COLOR A two-part name, combining Salon, the small outer room off a drawing room, with Drab, a term favored by true colorist, which simply describes a color as lacking in brightness. The richness of this color is instantly appealing and equally at home when used to evoke a classic 19th-century feel and the perfect go-to 'chocolate' for a modern look. This warm drab works as a dark accompaniment to both Yellow and Red Based Neutrals.
NEW FARROW & BALL COLOR This color and its name are a nod to painters and decorators; a drop cloth is a traditional name for the indispensable painter's dustsheet which this color embodies. It reads as neither too yellow, nor too grey, and is the perfect contrast to the slightly lighter Shaded White and Shadow White - these three shades work together effortlessly.
NEW FARROW & BALL COLOR This color was first used at the classic Georgian Inchyra House to work with moody Scottish skies. It can be found on the exterior doors of their very impressive barn which nestle at the bottom of a rather gray and imposing hill, so the color needed to have depth and work sympathetically with the dramatic natural backdrop.
FARROW & BALL NEW COLOR A Vardo is a traditional horse-drawn gypsy or Romany wagon. A similar color was used in the intricate patterning of these vehicles (usually over red) which is seen as an important cultural high point in decoration. This rich teal is so full of life and joy it seemed natural to name it after something renowned for its flamboyant color. This color works well with reds or dark grays.
NEW FARROW & BALL COLOR Shadow white takes it name from the soft tone created when whites are used in shaded areas. For devotees of lighter neutrals on both walls and woodwork, this versatile and understated color works in any style of home. It has none of the perceived yellows of Slipper Satin and is a perfect contrast to the slightly darker Shaded White. White & Light Tones undercoat.
NEW FARROW & BALL COLOR Inspired by sea mist and named after the Cromarty Firth estuary, a place of swirling mist mentioned daily in The Shipping Forecast, which is in itself part of the fabric of British coastal life. This color brings a muted softness to any room. A lighter version of Mizzle, it works beautifully when paired with Light Blue, or grouped with Blue Gray and Pigeon. Mid Tones undercoat.
