Farrow & Ball New Colours 2016

Tomorrow Farrow & Ball reveal their new colours for 2016, drum roll please!

As an interiors freak and colour addict it’s always an exciting time and although interestingly Farrow & Ball are not really renowned for their strong colours, of which there are few, it’s the intrinsic changes, the subtleties in the tones that gets me excited. As soon as you think you’re more than happy with your wevet paintwork, they get you lusting after drop cloth, yes another brilliantly inspired name, a drop cloth being the traditional name for a decorators dust sheet!

Farrow & Ball choose their colours to harmonise with their existing palette and are masters at giving us shades that work equally well within traditional or contemporary interiors. Just a sneak peak of some of the new shades. For a new colour card and inspirational brochure, with suggestions for complimentary palettes, order online.

Drop Cloth

A perfect neutral neither too yellow nor too grey


The softest pink with a large drop of grey, sophisticated femininity 

Shadow White

A new lighter neutral

Salon Drab

I predict brown is going to be a big trend this year, don’t ask me why, just a feeling?

Yeabridge Green

A fresh green found in an 18th Century Georgian Farmhouse in Yeabridge Somerset.


named after the word for a traditional romany caravan, the colour was used in the intricate patterning on the vehicles
