Every three years Farrow & Ball add a further nine colours to their paint chart, whilst editing some of their others out. Next week they will unveil their new colours, which include a wider range of grey’s further confirming that this is the neutral of choice by most people, replacing previous yellow based neutrals.
The success of Farrow & Ball is that they offer a wide range of colours, but from a condensed palette, making the choice easier for their customer. They also offer suggested, complimentary colour palettes on their website, which is almost like having a virtual interior designer on tap. The colours work well in period and modern properties and have a depth of hue and appearance that is unmistakable. F&B customers are as loyal as fan club members and part of the attraction, as well as the amazing product, is the quirky names of the colours, which are reminiscent of family friends and favourite British coastal bolt holes, all very jolly hockey sticks. Its a bit like a Richard Curtis film, you either get the nostalgia of it all or you don’t, but plenty of us do?
Along with the new greys they have also added brighter colours, perfect as a backdrop for vintage or mid century furniture enthusiasts. Looks like they have their finger on the pulse of the nation again?
