Colour Schemes

Colour can be used in a variety of ways to achieve strikingly different schemes. We've carefully selected Farrow & Ball paint colours and finishes to create a range of looks - you could use just one colour or several to inspire your decoration.

INDUSTRIAL

A strong but fragile fusion of colour.
Inspired by industrial architecture, this look is all about modernity mixed with tradition. Old and new are combined in an urban palette of muted tones that mimic the earthy shades of natural materials such as stone, clay, chalk and brick. Team soft grey based neutrals such as Cornforth White® No.228 and Pavilion Gray No.242 with intense and inky darks such as Off-Black No.57 and Down Pipe No.26 to create a contemporary scheme. The deep, dramatic hues are accented and uplifted by splashes of vibrant, zestful colour with citrus shades such as Babouche® No.223 or Orangery No.70.

AQUATIC

A soft, watery palette defined by the elements.
This is a gentle, tranquil scheme. Subtle, natural colours are starkly contrasted with strong inky blues and combined with the reflective qualities of light, glass and mirrors for a diluted, watery look featuring freshwater tones. Try Strong White® No.2001 or James White® No.2010 teamed with the soft Pavilion Blue No.252 or Tunsgate Green No.250, and underpinned by Blue Ground® No.210, Drawing Room Blue No.253 or Hague Blue® No.30.

URBAN DECAY

A vibrant scheme with an unpredictable twist.
Bold and graphic, this look features the strong use of vibrant colours, but with an urban edge. Team dark and dramatic colours such as Pelt No.254 and Pitch Black No.256 together in a scheme for a theatrical look and experiment with paint finish as well as colour to make a real statement. Use Eco Full Gloss to create a high shine surface and inject with zingy, bright colours such as Arsenic® No.214 and Dayroom Yellow® No.233 for added impact and the ultimate visual scheme!

GLITZ & GLAMOUR

A decadent look that celebrates excess.
In complete contrast to Urban Decay, this look is all about wealth and indulgence. Use rich and opulent shades like Brinjal® No.222, Pitch Blue® No.220 and Churlish Green No.251, alongside shimmering gold and metallics for an extravagant feel. This glamorous, glitzy look has a Middle Eastern influence, so colours include exotic shades which combine and collide in a celebration of colour and excess. Try Porphyry Pink® No.49, Brinjal® No.222 and Churlish Green No.251; a riot of colour with an adventurous twist. Key to this look is the myriad of colours – definitely not for the faint-hearted!

NATURE

Bring the outdoors in
This look is heavily influenced by the environment, but with an urban twist. Soft greens such as Vert De Terre® No.234, and French Gray No.18, can be used with earthy browns such as Mouse’s Back® No.40 and Light Gray No.17, yet key to this look is the sudden introduction of chemical shades which should collide rather than combine. Think rural luxury meets city living. Experiment with paint finishes for a dramatic effect - try powdery Casein Distemper alongside high sheen Full Gloss.

SALVAGE

A fragile, crumbling look of the past
Use a sophisticated palette of strong colours lifted by lighter tones to create a moody, vintage feel. Try chalky pinks such as Middleton Pink No.245 and Cinder Rose No.246, teamed with Teresa’s Green® No.236 and accented with Mahogany No.36. Emphasise this tarnished look with traditional finishes such as Dead Flat and Distempers.

COASTAL

A weathered, faded look
Think driftwood and coastal-inspired colours which make for a gentle, powdery look. Use greys and blues alongside each other to promote rest and relaxation. Fragile, floaty colours are offset with darker shades used as an interesting accent on furniture, shelves and mantelpieces, to ground softer tones. Try Skimming Stone No.241 and Elephant’s Breath® No.229 with Blue Gray No.91 grounded by London Clay No.244 and Radicchio® No.96.
