16 Stunning New Colourways Have Been Added
A new beautiful collection from Farrow & Ball has been released, showcasing 16 new beautiful colourways. The new collection Titled ‘Colour by Nature’ which was in collaboration with the Natural History Museum in London.
Farrow & Ball collaborated with the Natural History Museum as their book library holds ‘Werner’s Nomenclature of colours’ – which will bring the true colours of nature into your home. Colour By Nature isn’t just a celebration of colour, but of our shared respect and curiosity for the natural world.
Quoted from the colour card – “Over two centuries since its publication in 1814, Werner’s Nomenclature of Colours is still a treasured tool for scientists and artists alike. In a pre-photographic age, it gave the world an official classification of colour in nature, allowing intrepid explorers to fully describe the ever-expanding world around them. Among these was Charles Darwin, for whom the book proved indispensable on the 1831-36 voyage of HMS beagle.”
The new colours are available in 5 finishes – Modern Emulsion, Modern Eggshell, Estate Emulsion, Estate Eggshell & Full Gloss.
Let’s have a look at the colours… ( You can order all the new colours here)
