Farrow & Ball is one company I thought we should definitely take a look at in Sunday Showcase. They’re a British manufacturer of paints and wallpapers using traditional methods. The formulation of their paints has remained consistent across the decades. Using only natural ingredients, Farrow & Ball paints are inherently eco-friendly.
The paints created by Farrow & Ball are still manfactured one batch at a time. There’s no mixing at the store. The paints are tinted at the factory! Because of the composition of their paints, the colors appear to have a much greater depth than most modern paints. This has become known as “the Farrow & Ball look.”
The above paint colors and wallpaper, All White, and Strong White and the Broad Stripe wall covering from Farrow & Ball are a perfect combination for this month’s “colors of the month” on the blog, blue and white.
Charlotte’s Locks No. 268 is new for 2011 and is a bold new color from the company.
Citron No. 74 takes its name from the 19th century term for a strong acid yellow.
I’ve always been a fan of a boldly striped wallpaper. Broad Stripe fits that bill. Farrow & Ball’s wallpapers are actually printed using their own paints!
If you’re looking to try Farrow & Ball in your home, the paints and papers are available for purchase online. You can even order a color sample card online. If you want to try a color before you commit to buying an entire gallon, small sample “pots” are available for $7.00.
