Farrow & Ball have just posted these lovely short films showing the inspiration behind their nine new colours.

My favourite is Stiffkey Blue, not only for the beautiful deep blue hue, but also because I have such wonderful memories of Stiffkey, a small coastal village on the North Norfolk coast, which we visited in our VW camper when our children were little. The village has a great campsite,High Sand Creek, which is totally uncommercialised and a haven for small children.
The colour has had many admirers this week after I used it on a set I am working on for a Spring/Summer ’14 publication. I wish I could show you the shot and how the blue frames the furniture so well, but unfortunately my hands are tied as the client has full ownership until it’s published.
