Experts in paint and wallpaper Farrow & Ball is introducing nine rich new paint shades to its colour card this autumn.
The new colours which range from an exotic pink and a deep red, to a soft off white and down to earth blue will launch on 20th September 2018, and are the first from the Dorset based brand since 2016.
Carefully chosen to re-balance the Farrow & Ball colour card, the new additions will replace nine existing shades to preserve the curated palette of 132 paint colours that’s become so synonymous with the brand.
When commenting on this announcement head of creative Charlotte Cosby who co-created the new paint hues said: “New colours is an incredibly exciting time at Farrow & Ball, it’s not something we do often, making it feel all the more special.
“An extraordinary amount of time and thought goes into each colour, from working with our expert craftsmen to refine the exact shade to dreaming up the perfect name and telling the story behind the colours.
“The collection is intelligently designed to ensure the colours you choose sit effortlessly alone or as a scheme as well as responding extraordinarily to light. We can’t wait for them to bring homes across the world to life!”
True to the 100% water-based range, the new collection will be low odour, eco-friendly, safe and easy to use and available in a range of high performance finishes.
