There's always excitement when our paint suppliers release new colours... but especially when they're from Farrow & Ball.

Farrow & Ball do colour really well and this week has seen the launch of 9 new colours and a wonderful (and slightly barmy) marketing campaign. The colours are held together by a farmyard story, with each colour taking on the guise of a farm animal.

Watch 'The Great Animal Escape':

The new hues are natural additions to the palette of 132 colours and have been crafted by Farrow & Ball's team of experts. They have been designed to be optimistic colours which lift the spirits. 

Shadow White

Shadow White is the lighter version of Shaded White. It has an understated look, with none of the yellow of Slipper Satin or the grey of Ammonite.

Drop Cloth

Named after the traditional painter and decorator's dust sheet. Drop Cloth is a darker version of both Shaded White and Shadow White. Not too yellow or grey and will work in any style of home. This will be a popular one!

Worsted

This colour is the perfect neutral. Worsted pairs brilliantly with Wevet, Strong White or Cornforth White.

Cromarty

Cromarty will create the softest of rooms and is sure to become a Farrow & Ball classic. A great choice for the kitchen.

Peignoir

Peignoir is a soft pastel with just a hint of colour. Perfect for traditional, lush bedrooms in the traditional home. It will sit well with stronger colours, such as Brassica and Brinjal.

Yeabridge Green

Yeabridge Green is a clean, fresh and contemporary colour. With greens growing in populraity it's one to watch.

Vardo

Vardo is one of the stronger hues from the newly released colours. It is full of life and joy and is the perfect accent colour. It works wonderfully with whites and also sits well with Pavilion Gray or Down Pipe.

Inchyra Blue

Inchyra Blue has been getting a lot of attention and it's easy to see why. A beautiful colour for exterior doors or for walls in modern homes. It's one of those colours that's hard to pin down and that's part of the appeal. It has an immense depth of colour and can read as a blue, grey or even green.

 

Salon Drab

Another colour that has been much in demand. A rich colour that is much cleaner than Mouse's Back and less red than Mahogany. Salon Drab is a colour that will feed the current demand for darker tones in the home.
