Nine new colors will be introduced by UK based Farrow & Ball in February, but I have a sneak peek for you today. Know for their lush color palette and intense, saturated hues, the nine new colors are a luxurious mix of neutrals with a pop of delicious burnt orange. The new paints join a sophisticated lineup of 132 colors that are eco and user friendly. Looking for a quick design change for 2011?  Pick up a paint brush!

 Oxford Stone No.264
Shown here in the cloth beneath the teapot, this warm neutral was named after the color of the stone used in Oxfordshire village houses.
 Manor House Gray No.265
My favorite new grey, this hue reflects the quintessentially English manor houses of the 18th century. Beautiful in both traditional and more modern designs.

 Mizzle: No. 266 
Named after the West Country description of mist and drizzle-it's a great neutral (and a great name!)
 Dove Tale No.267
A soft grey neutral that works well with a variety of hues.

Charlotte's Locks No.268
A brilliant burst of color, Charlotte's Locks is for those adventurous types. A deep burnt
with a sophisticated flair, use on a mirror frame for a fun pop.
 Plummett No.272
Sophisticated and modern, Plummett is ready to add drama to your decor. This deep grey was named after the lead weight used to sink a fishing line.

 Brassica No. 271 
This delicate violet is perfect with soft grays and whites.
 Calluna No.270 
 Calluna is a soft grey named after the Scottish heather.
 Cabbage White No. 269

Yes, I got this information too! Some nice shades, right? I'm thinking how I can work them into some of my current designs.

Ooh, Calluna is stunning. Such pretty colors, but that one needs to find a home here, I think.


That Manor House Gray was my favorite. Farrow & Ball always get it right. :)

What a fun way to share these new colors! I'm seeing a wave of gray. Wonder if that will be in the forefront this year.

Love that the orange is amazingly similar to the orange candelabra that we're showing at NYIGF. Will we see you there? Hope so!
