Farrow & Ball: 11 New Colours

September 29th, 2022

Paint and wallpaper expert Farrow & Ball reveal eleven new paint shades!

The new colours are inspired by moments of joy, comfort, and refreshment to bring delight to any home. The first additions to the Farrow & Ball colour card in four years, these versatile new shades range from a lively, flame red to a most delicate pink. Unmistakably Farrow & Ball, they share a signature richness, depth, and extraordinary response to light.

Our relationship with our home has changed so much over the last few years, it felt like the perfect time to introduce these new colours. We all feel ready to show off our spaces and personal style. Our palette is made even more relevant through the introduction of these gentle lights and dramatic and atmospheric darks.” Joa Studholme, Colour Curator for Farrow & Ball who co-created the shades with Charlotte Cosby, Head of Creative.

Charlotte Cosby commented: “I’ve developed a soft spot for many of the new colours, especially Beverly which, just like its namesake, is reassuring, uncomplicated and full of depth. We used it in a kitchen with Selvedge and I wanted to move in immediately.”

Explore the new colours:

Stirabout is inspired by the nurturing porridge favoured over many centuries in Ireland. 

It's an earthy tone with just a hint of underlying grey to create a relaxed feel that will never be too cold. 

Try pairing it with Jitney and natural fabrics for a laidback look.

The name 'Eddy' comes from the circular currents enjoyed by wild swimmers as a natural jacuzzi. 

Delicate without being pastel, it's a gentle green with a fresh feel that brings the outdoors in. 

It works particularly well in garden rooms and relaxing spaces.

Tailor Tack is a light, delicate pink, which takes its name from the colour of tacking thread used in Haute Couture ateliers. 

It looks particularly good paired with vintage finds or industrial accents, so works well in traditional and modern schemes.

Try it on a ceiling for a subtle touch of colour.

Templeton Pink was developed for the dining room at Templeton House to offset the magnificent Wedgwood plaques made to commemorate a former owner. 

It's a more intense version of Setting Plaster and becomes surprisingly deep in low light, creating a warm and welcoming space.

Before becoming the name of this fiery red, the word 'bamboozle' was originally used to describe the deceit of pirates. 

It's a little less spicy than Harissa, a little more sophisticated than Charlotte's Locks and brings joy and warmth to any room. 

Try it with other strong colours like Beverly or Wine Dark for a bold scheme.

Hopper Head takes its name from the decorative iron containers used to catch rainwater. 

A classic charcoal that sits between Railings and Down Pipe, it creates inviting spaces to withdraw to. 

It pairs beautifully with nearly every other Farrow & Ball shade or adds a touch of drama when used exclusively across the walls, ceiling, and woodwork of a room.

Selvedge is a dependable blue, named after the highly prized denim woven on a shuttle loom to produce closed edges. 

It's particularly good in low-light spaces where it creates a familiar and friendly atmosphere, perfect for bedrooms. 

Try it as a lighter, less grey version of Farrow & Ball classic De Nimes.

Kittiwake is a clean, cool blue inspired by the wings of seabirds. 

It sits between two famous Farrow & Ball blues, Parma Grey and Lulworth Blue, but has a warmer, more relaxed feel. 

It works especially well with stainless steel and industrial accents, making it a winning choice for contemporary kitchens.

Wine Dark is a deep blue as rich as the story behind its name - the term was used by Homer to describe the sea; choice readers have discussed at length. 

The hue of midnight skies, it's the richest of the Farrow & Ball blues. In low-light, Wine Dark becomes even deeper and almost velvety, making it particularly glamorous in candlelight. 

Try it in a dining room or cosy sitting room for an intimate space.

Whirlybird is a playful green inspired by the papery winged seeds beloved by many young gardeners and nature lovers. 

It's an upbeat and lively shade, particularly in morning light. 

Pair it with Beverly and James White for a light-hearted scheme.

Beverly is named in honour of a much-missed Farrow & Ball staff member.

Like its namesake, this green is dependable and reassuring. It's bound to be a favourite among lovers of colour. 

With a remarkable ability to feel even greener in bright daylight or more conservative in lower light, it can work beautifully in any home.
