The New Colors Farrow and Ball Doesn't Want You to See

Not long ago, I was lucky enough to catch these photos of the new Farrow & Ball colors for 2016.  They were posted ahead of the official release by F&B and quickly removed.  Lucky for you, I had my wits about me and was able to capture these shots and the official descriptions before it was too late.

You're welcome!

Peignoir  No. 286

Inspired by the chiffon gowns ladies wore in their boudoirs, this gorgeous gray pink is romantic without being too sweet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cromarty  No. 285

This tinted neutral mimics the look of mist from the sea, offering a soothing blanket of softness to any space. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Vardo  No. 288

Named after traditional gypsy wagons in the early 19th century, this striking teal shade was produced with the same expert craftsmanship as its namesake.  The color pairs well with reds or dark grays.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Salon Drab  No. 290

This "drab" hue typical of the 19th century is all at once dark, warm and inviting.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shadow White  No. 282

This neutral is on the lighter side, offering a warm off-white that feels fresh but not stark. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inchyra Blue  No. 289

Named after the small Scottish settlement of Inchyra, the aged blue gray shade was first used in houses there to play off moody Scottish skies.  The deep indigo hue is reminiscent of twilight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Drop Cloth  No. 283

A slightly darker alternative to Shadow White, this trad neutral is multi-dimensional.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yeabridge Green  No. 287

Discovered in the kitchen of a Georgian farmhouse in Somerset during a renovation, this vintage shade is having a moment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Worsted  No. 284

Joining Farrow & Ball's group of easy greys, this smoky shade is not too light and not too dark.
