Straight from London: Farrow & Ball New Colours for 2013


While at Design Junction for Blogtour London the other night I saw the new interesting display of the Farrow & Ball 2013 colours. I knew you would want to see. I am particularly enamored with the blues.

100278_1Nancy’s Blushes No. 278

Named after a mystery Nancy, this true pink holds real charm and is best contrasted either with All White or Black Blue. White & Light Tones Undercoat.

100274_1Ammonite No. 274

The colour of fossils found on the Dorset coast. A perfect contrast to the slightly darker Cornforth White. White & Light Tones Undercoat.


Skiffkey Blue No. 281

Reminiscent of the extraordinary colour of the mud found at Stiffkey beach, Norfolk. A slightly bluer alternative to Down Pipe. Dark Tones Undercoat.


Mole’s Breath No. 276

The name Moles Breath speaks for itself – linking in with the fantastically popular Elephant’s Breath but reflecting the beautiful colour of a mole’s coat. Dark Tones Undercoat.


Dimpse No. 277

A cool gray to complement Pavilion Gray and Blackened. The colour of twilight according to West Country dialect. White & Light Tones Undercoat.


Wevet No. 273

Named after the old Dorset term for a spider’s web. A delicate fresh white which is extremely versatile. White & Light Tones Undercoat.


Purbeck No. 275

A stronger neutral which resembles the stone found in the Isle of Purbeck. Works perfectly with Ammonite™ and Cornforth White. Mid Tones Undercoat.


Yellowcake No. 279

A classic bright yellow named to reflect the revival of the ‘homemade’. Much used in kitchens during the 1960s but equally popular in 21st century homes. White & Light Tones Undercoat.


St. Giles Blue No. 280

A clean strong blue originally found in the hall of 17th century St Giles House at Wimborne St Giles. Mid Tones Undercoat.


How cute is this children’s book  “A Colorful Adventure” by Farrow & Ball using their colors?

“Painted entirely using Farrow & Ball paints we have written and illustrated our very own children’s book revealing the unique story behind each of our nine new colours. There are just 1000 copies of this limited edition book globally.”
