A down to earth and grounding blue

This quietly elegant blue feels wonderfully down to earth, so could be used on anything from a kitchen island to an airy drawing room. The exact shade is rooted in a regency palette but is inspired by the cloth of everyday workwear made in the French city Nîmes. Like denim, its blue hue is ultimately fashionable and yet always feels grounded.

After completing her studies in the visual arts, followed by closer study on the subject of colour, Bérénice got the opportunity to join the Strasbourg showroom at its opening in 2014. Fascinated by the endless possibilities offered by colour combinations, she thrives in her role as a Colour Consultant for Farrow & Ball. In her scheme, Bérénice chose the elegant De Nimes as her central colour, placing it in a peaceful and hushed atmosphere that marries richness with an authentic, down to earth feel.
