5 TOP FARROW&BALL COLOURS OF 2017

05 January 2018 | Post By: Warings At Home | Farrow and Ball

A round-up of the most popular Farrow&Ball colours for 2017

 

As difficult it is to choose just a few of the extraordinary Farrow&Ball colours, over the past year, as full stockists of the 132 unmatched shades, we have noticed that the following colours have been most popular among our customers.

Pigeonfront door

This strong blue grey was one of the most popular colours that our customers chose in 2017.  A contemporary shade, particularly suited for use in darker spaces such as studies and panelled rooms, it is also incredibly popular on front doors, for a modern country style entrance to the home.

Pigeon No. 25 by Farrow&Ball works particularly well in a colour scheme with bold colours, such as Down Pipe & Black Blue, to create a sophisticated dark interior with a contemporary twist.

 

Stiffkey Bluekitchen cabinets

An inky blue, named after the local Norfolk beach where the mud, along with the cockles, share a particular deep navy hue. This blue shade has been particularly popular with kitchen cabinets and islands all throughout 2017, thus making its way to our top 5 Farrow&Ball shades of the past year.

Stiffkey Blue has a traditional feel to it, and, when used in well-lit areas of the home, appears even bluer, working wonderfully when contrasted with Ammonite.

 

 

Green Smoke

Green smoke is a dark and smoky green, particularly popular with interiors in 2017. It has an irresistibly inviting deepness and weathered familiarity, while evoking calm and serenity when used inside.

Dark and moody interiors trends are definitely here to stay, and Green Smoke is a colour that has proven to give any room that contemporary twist. For best results, pair with other bold shades such as Off Black and Studio Green.

 

 

Brassica

Brassica No. 271 is a warm shade that lifts cold feeling rooms without being overtly red. Don't be afraid to use this bold colour with its beautiful rich lavender tones. It's a very feminine colour in light areas, and is such a warm shade, it will really lift an otherwise cold feeling room.

For a contemporary feel, it is often combined with Calluna No. 270 and/or Strong White No. 2001, giving out charming, feminine vibes.

 

Black Blue

As we mentioned previously, deep and sophisticated hues, such as the dark but inviting Black Blue, have been extremely popular in 2017. Black Blue takes its name from the two essential pigments that make up its rich colour. This deep shade appears much bluer when seen in large areas and especially when used in Full Gloss finish. When painted on small areas, or contrasted with a bright white, it will appear almost black in colour. This saturated tone can feel incredibly sophisticated and is perfect for those with a discerning eye for colour.

Depending on the effect that you would like to achieve at your home, pair with light colours such as Shaded White & Bone or, for a darker colour scheme, try with Purbeck Stone and Mole’s Breath.

This week we are drawing inspiration from a mid aged green - Lichen No.19 by Farrow&Ball. This calm and muted green has a subtle feel to it due to its underlying blue tone, and is named after the ever changing, subtle colour of creeping algae, which ages stone so beautifully. Lichen is perfect for use in the garden where it feels at one with nature.

 

TIP: For best results, pair with Mid Tones Primer and Undercoat.



Colour Schemes

Lichen No. 19 works particuraly well with Traditional Neutrals, such as Slipper Satin and Lime white, due to their subtle green undertones, creating a soft colour scheme.

Lichen also works wonderfully as a darker accent to the delicate green Vert de Terre No. 234.

Bring the outdoors in with the nature’s great colours: purple, teal and grey

purple, cushions, floral

Purple: spiritual, soul searching, mysterious, enchanting

Teal: positive, serene, sophisticated, cool, tasteful, confident

Grey: sleek, modern, classy, stylish


This week we bring to you a home interior inspired by floral hues. Floral purple with a teal edge is a trending colour combination, currently a top one on Pinterest, so taking inspiration from that and our colour of the week Farrow&Ball’s Vardo we decided to dedicate this blog on how to decorate your home using this timeless combination.

Being full stockists for Farrow&Ball, here at Warings we have the 132 unmatched shades of paint, giving us the opportunity to choose a differend shade every week. This week, we stopped at the timless teal - Vardo No. 288.

The teal blue colour looks beautiful when painted on woodwork as well as as a statement wall in any room. Why not update a cabinet, table or chair with a touch of paint, and contrast it with a neutral background? What's more, this colour works extremely well with darker shades like reds and greys.

Purple textiles and teal walls sounds great, but it can be hard to decorate when combining two vibrant colours. We have selected some of the most pinned images on Pintrest  ons and most pinned images on Pinterest to inspire you:
