New Colours 2011
The 2011 Farrow & Ball colour card has been further enhanced with a seamless mix of exciting new colours. In keeping with time honoured tradition, each colour proudly boasts an intriguing name and source of inspiration.
The exquisite new colours complement the existing palette as interesting accents, enhancing current colour families and creating inspiration for new ones. We hope you enjoy our new colours as much as we enjoyed creating them.
Oxford Stone No.264Named after the stone often used in
Oxfordshire village houses, this colour is perfect for creating a warm interior.
Manor House Gray No.265Inspired by the quintessentially English manor house, this definite grey has its roots in the 18th century but can be used to striking effect in modern schemes.
Mizzle No.266A soft blue grey reminiscent of a West Country evening mist. The blue will become more intense when painted in a smaller room.
Dove Tale No.267Named after the well known carpentry joint but with a twist in the tale! Some
see this colour as a grey while to others it appears to be warmer and more stony.
Charlotte's Locks No.268Highly dramatic and extremely contemporary especially when combined with Railings. Widely used as an accent colour in the minimalist decoration of the 1950s.
Cabbage White No.269A delightful clean colour that takes its name from the distinctive wings of the Cabbage White butterfly.
Calluna No.270Named after the Scottish heather, Calluna has a contemporary look but with the delicate inclusion of black, it retains a vintage feel.
Brassica No.271An aged darker version of Calluna, named after the familiar purple colour often seen in the Brassica family of vegetables. This colour comes alive when combined with Calluna and Pelt.
Plummett No.272Named after the lead weight used to sink a fishing line, this mid-tone grey is
appropriate for interior as well as exterior use as often seen in Gothic architecture.
