Farrow & Ball new 2013 colours
For sport’s fans the big news at the weekend was that Tokyo will host the 2020 Olympics. Interior’s fans have also eagerly been awaiting news which, is finally released today – Farrow & Ball are adding 9 new colours to their range, and the new colours are bound to freshen up your interior.
Maybe your interiors have a grey slant and you are an Elephant Breath fan, or do you prefer calm neutrals so Slipper Satin is your signature style? Either way the colours of Farrow and Ball have a huge following among interior’s fans. The names of the paint colours have taken on a life of their own and are used by many design professionals – some personal favourites include Brassica (in my bathroom), Railings (on my front door) and French Gray (in my dining room).
Stiffkey Blue is one of the new colours that immediately appeals to me. Adding a dash of dark to an interior is a great way to add some drama to your interiors so this new colour will be featuring in my interiors soon. I’ve recently used Down Pipe to add detailing to a kitchen – and can easily see that Stiffkey Blue would make a great dark feature wall within a home.
Yellow is another very fashionable shade in interiors now and it’s a good choice if you are rediscovering colour after a decade of neutrals. Yellowcake is one of the new colours for 2013, and it replicates the colour often seen in kitchens in the 1960s. For a fresh and vibrant look it would be a good choice for a hallway, coming home would then always be a happy and colourful experience.
If all your friends’ homes are now decorated with Elephant’s Breath and you want to be different you should consider using the new Mole’s Breath. This new colour replicates the gorgeous colour of a mole’s coat – and you could combine it with the new Wevet for a completely fresh new look.
The other new colours are called Ammonite, Dimpse, Nancy’s Brushes, Purbeck Stone and St Giles Blue. Take a look at the Farrow & Ball website for full details on the new range – I can’t wait to start using them for the interiors we create.
