Farrow & Ball Key Colours for 2015

I do love Farrow & Ball paints. In fact I love them so much I currently have 50 shades of black pasted around my bedroom walls trying to decide which shade to go for. I exaggerate of course, it’s more like 5 shades but that didn’t sound quite so dramatic. But believe me, it’s going to look dramatic when its done.

However, now having seen the key colours for 2015 I may be undergoing a small change of heart.

The four new colours, (in order of personal preference below) have been developed to promote relaxation and reflection in interiors. Paler in appearance they help to create spaces that live and breathe as we look to our homes as places of sanctuary from the stresses of modern-day living.

Farrow and Ball paint colours 2015 - Breakfast Room Green

Breakfast room green.

Breakfast Room Green feels lively at any time of day. A hue taken straight from nature it makes us feel safe and calm with a slightly botanical feel. Paired with a white ceiling it’s fresh and contemporary and reflects away from hard, graphic interiors to a softer, more natural feel with a modern twist. And I am slightly obsessed with green at the moment so this is a firm favourite.

Farrow and Ball paint colours 2015 - Light Blue

Light blue.

The use of Light Blue in the home is intended to create an interior where colours shift and change like the landscape. We instinctively gravitate towards shades that remind us of the softer side of life and that help to make our homes into an oasis of calm away from the brashness of modern life.

Farrow and Ball paint colours 2015 - Pink Ground

Pink Ground.

Pink Ground creates rooms that feel pretty, soft edged and accessible. Although warm, this particular pink is not sugary or nursery-like, rather it feels more like a diluted plaster colour where walls look almost nude.

Farrow and Ball paint colours 2015 - Tanners Brown

Tanners brown.

Tanners brown is for those who still crave darker, dramatic spaces. This earth brown colour feels totally timeless and has an artisan feel to it. It’s best to use it on the skirting boards too so that it feels grounded to the floor and will totally transform rooms where natural light is lacking, making them cosy and cocooning.

Which do you prefer?

    Breakfast Room Green, all the way! I have so many plants, and I love green, but have been struggling with the idea of painting a wall green bc I wasnt sure if they would compete… But I’m inspired to repaint my kitchen now (even 3 years after your post)!

    I had my dining room in Paris is a pretty similar hue as the Breakfast room green (it was from The Little Greene) and I could put it up again on my walls with no fear of getting sick of it. Lovely selection of colours. I guess it’s high time I painted all my white walls now 😉 xx

    Love the light blue! But definitely stick with black, I’m painting a wall black soon, so I’ll need a partner in crime! 🙂
