Farrow & Ball Launches 9 New Colours

08th Sep 2016

On Monday 1st February, Farrow & Ball released 9 new colours to their range during a live-launch presented by Head of Creative, Charlotte Cosby and International Colour Consultant, Joa Studholme, who were also on-hand to answer questions from live-tweets.


Farrow & Ball pride themselves on producing high quality and eco-friendly paints, their new selection of colours consists of:

Shadow white

Shadow white is the new and lighter version of Shaded White and is the ideal colour for anyone looking for a white tone that is neither too yellow nor too grey.

Drop Cloth

This mysterious shade was named in honour of all the painters and decorators who have worked with Farrow & Ball over the years. Drop Cloth is a darker version of Shaded and Show White and completes the trio of whites, designed to create a classic look.


The name of this colour derives from a village in Norfolk where yarn was originally created. Worsted is a shade between Purbeck Stone and Mole’s Breath, and in north-facing rooms, appears as a more dominant and grittier grey.


Cromarty is named after the Cromarty Firth estuary and helps to create a misty ambience. This light shade is neither too blue nor too grey, perfect for individuals who are after a soft and muted tone.


Peignoir is the latest addition to F&B’s colours inspired by pieces of clothing. This hazy grey-pink gives off a romantic look and works especially well with any of the collection’s contemporary neutrals.

Yeabridge Green

This verdant shade of green was first discovered in an 18th century Georgian Hamstone farmhouse and gives off a clean and fresh vibe. Yeabridge Green is perfect for reviving even the dullest of rooms.


This loud blue is named after vardos, which are well-known for their flamboyant colours. This vibrant yet versatile shade works particularly well with whites to create a clean and refreshing ambiance.

Inchyra blue

Inchyra blue was inspired by a bespoke colour made for Lord and Lady Inchyra which was used on the doors at their beautiful Georgian House. Its hazy colour creates a moody-look.

Salon Drab

Salon refers to the small outer room of a drawing room, whereas the term drab describes a colour that lacks brightness. This rich drab is great for creating rooms with a mid-19th century feel and perfect for darker north facing rooms, to give off a cosy feel.

The new colours have received a warm reception since they’ve been released, with fans showing their support on social media via the hashtag #MyFavouriteNewColour.
