Wow! We’re absolutely thrilled to share Farrow & Ball’s® official announcement of nine new colors yesterday. For the last few weeks since they’d announced there would be new colors coming, we’ve been on our toes with anticipation. What kind of neutrals would there be? What about fun, on-trend colors? Now the wait is over, behold the new nine with a little bit about their inspiration:
This mid-century modern green is a darker version of the much loved archive color Olive. Named after Japanese tea leaves, it provides a feeling of security.
De Nimes No.299
An elegant blue that is wonderfully down to earth, it is inspired by the cloth of everyday workwear originally made in the French city of the same name.
This relaxed and sandy neutral takes its name from the bus that whisks New Yorkers out of the hot city to the beaches of the Hamptons.
Paean Black No.294
This Georgian inspired red based black is a nod to the colour of old leather hymnals which so often included a song of praise or paean.
Preference Red No.297
Our deepest richest red, this Baroque colour is named in honour of our original trade name. The preferred red of modern homes.
A pink inspired by the powder which is used so enthusiastically at the Holi festival of colours in India.
School House White No.291
The lightest in the group including Shadow White, Shaded White and Drop Cloth, this soft white is reminiscent of the colour used in school houses.
Sulking Room Pink No.295
This muted rose is evocative of the colours used in boudoirs, a room originally named after the French ‘bouder’ - to sulk.
A grey green version of Farrow & Ball classic Pigeon, it takes its name from a green variety of the species. The perfect accent for our Traditional Neutrals.
