Revealed: Farrow & Ball’s 4 Key Colours For Spring 2016

Farrow & Ball are passionate about their paint and each season their shade choices influence all of ours. Here we reveal their four must-have new colours for spring 2016 – and how to use them…

It’s almost springtime and we’re loving the inpouring of colour in everything from tiles to textiles. We’ll have to wait until February 1 to see paint pros Farrow & Ball’s nine new colours for 2016, but they’ve kindly given us a sneak peek and rounded up their four favourites for spring…

F&B 01

Drop Cloth (left)
Farrow & Ball say…
“A pure neutral that feels soft and familiar, Drop Cloth is a step away from the cooler greys that have dominated the contemporary home, being more sensitive to the natural world and reflecting outdoor space. Drop Cloth can be used in any combination with Shadow White and Shaded White, either on walls or woodwork. It is also much enhanced by combination with the delicate shades of Oval Room Blue and Setting Plaster, creating schemes that feel delightfully natural.”

Peignoir (right)
Farrow & Ball say…
“Peignoir represents an escape from the urban world. The inclusion of a large dose of black makes it feel serene but sophisticated, and when used on walls it creates tender but ultimately intriguing rooms. It is best combined with Great White on woodwork as this duo of uncertain pinks creates a perfect harmony. When used with Dove Tale on floors and moody Inchyra Blue as an accent it becomes more exciting – creating wilder, rustic spaces.”

F&B 02

Yeabridge Green (left)
Farrow & Ball say…
“A clean uncomplicated green, but with definite earthy undertones. Despite being powerful in colour, its natural tone makes it very easy to live with. It works well with the glowing neutral Lime White on woodwork and its perfect partner Cooking Apple Green as an accent. However, for those who crave a stronger scheme, a combination with India Yellow enhances this familiar feeling colour.”

Salon Drab (right)
Farrow & Ball say…
“Salon Drab has rich natural tones which feel reassuringly historic, but with a modern twist. The high saturation of colour suggests exuberance and luxury. Combining Salon Drab with the glowing cream of Ringwold Ground on woodwork ensures a feeling of calm. However, if you wish to attract more attention, the inclusion of botanical Calke Green or the rich burgundy Eating Room Red will create an indulgent scheme with appealing warmth.”

And now we’re hungry…
