Farrow & Ball Launch 18 New Colors

Farrow & Ball Paint has just introduced 18 new paint colors in their line. I like the Farrow & Ball Paint range because it is complete yet concise. The specification of the product is very clear without too many different finishes or too large a product range to make it confusing. To use, it is just superb, like brushing silk onto the walls. The depth of colour can only be compared to silk, a fibre with a great capacity for pigment.

The product is premixed ensuring good colour matching. Every Farrow & Ball Paint colour is perfect. It is the exact shade or tint that works for a particular colour. The depth of colour and finish is way above all other paints. Every colour is a winner.

I also love the names of the colours; no other product allows you to specify ‘Drab’ and have the result be fabulous! I am especially happy to see the bottom 3 new Farrow & Ball colors: Pelt, Tanners Brown & Pitch Black and can hardly wait to try them. Wimborne White and Skimming Stone will definitely be on my list of new whites to try. I have paired some of these Farrow & Ball colors to pictures that I think might closely approximate the new paint colours in their line, so you can see how they might work in a room setting. Paint is a wonderful avenue for decorating. I always tell my clients that one colour doesn't cost anymore than another, but it can make all the difference in the world.

In rooms like the ones above I would use Farrow & Ball Paint No. 239 Wimborne White to bring out the detail in an all white space.

    The description for Cinder Rose sounds exactly what I'm looking for to use in my bedroom, and I love English country houses. I must get a sample. On another note, I am almost positive the picture for Middleton Pink was featured in Martha Stewart Living, maybe a picture in the recent Pink issue, of her guest house??

  11. I'm a little late finding this post and your blog for that matter. But, I just had to say how I love the Drawing Room Blue!

    It reminds me so much of my mother it almost makes me cry.


  12. Thanks for the post Patricia. Am looking for a "sophisticated" pink for master bedroom. Like the Middleton so far. So afraid of it but really want to give it a try. Wonder if I should look at whites with a hink of pink?
    Any suggestions would be welcome.

  13. I keep coming back to this post. It has been soooo helpful. Thank you!

  14. patricia...i love your blog... it is such a wealth of information! i use farrow and ball whenever i can and in a new project... pale powder is beyond amazing.. orangery fabulous, and pink ground..sooo soothing!

    Farrow and Ball Paint is one of my favorite paints to use. I love all of the new colors you have shown.

    Farrow and Ball is my paint bible,I absolutely positively would not leave the office without it, there has never been a doubt in my mind whenever I specify Farrow and Ball unlike other paint brands. What you see is what you get, it is a beautiful full bodied paint and a remarkable paint company. Richard- Hotel Interior Designer

  18. Hi
    Love the blog site.
    I use Farrow and Ball here in England all the time, Follow my current mission refurbishing 'The most Beautiful House in England', Brympton D'Evercy in Somerset.
    Any visitors from Canada that would like a guided tour let me know.

  19. Hi Patrica great blog as a high quality painter and decorator in Essex I use all manner of paint brands and I must say the colour range for FB is fantastic. But I and many other decorator will not use the gloss/ eggshell on woodwork due to FB only using water based products.

    I also recommend Little Green Paint as a quiality brand

  22. Amazing look of the home. Perfect colors the luxury look!!
