Our Favourite Farrow and Ball Colours From The Last Year

We Love Farrow & Balls Palette, Here's 5 Of Our Favourites From The Last Year

1- Elephants Breath (No229)

A warm and uplifting mid-grey which according to Farrow and Ball can appear “almost lilac” in certain lighting conditions, and you know they are perfectly on the money there, having used this for a few clients this year we’ve had the privilege to observe it on a multitude of surfaces.

Having seen and used it first-hand this colour really can be taken down a few routes styling wise, whether going for a minimalists’ dream or heading down the route more contemporary, we’re sure that you can find a place in your homes and in your hearts for what is sure to become a timeless choice.

Grey has been a prominent colour choice for homes around the world this year in particular what we like to call ‘versatile’ shades, ones that can feel equally at home in a living room as it would a landing, a bedroom as much as a broom cupboard, you get the point.

Just hearing the name ‘Elephants Breath’ conjures up for me the sight of steamy morning mouth exhaling an almost vape cloud puff that is caught by the sun rising hazily on the horizon, full of mysticism.

This natural shade comes across particularly majestic when used alongside natural woods, living house plants and the like.

Why we love it…

The depth that this colour contains doesn’t become apparent until applied over a surface when you’re able to fully grasp the almost chameleon-like shade change from a grey to blue-grey lilacish, hues of elephant skin and fond memories are sure to put a grin on your chin.

Opens up the space even in areas notoriously dimly lit such as stairwells and small washroom areas, any source of natural lighting will only add more beauty to its effect and welcome you home each time you arrive back from a tiresome day, adding a homely modern feel.

Conclusion

Creating a timeless look, or more realistically an interior project that could last 7-9 years needn’t be so hard, use our Farrow and Ball Top Picks for the year to splash a little inspiration, fresh energy and new beginnings into your home this winter

As you’ll see the colours we selected to be our firm favourites are all quite easy on the eye, would fit in well within most homes and offer more than just a flat regular colour which can be picked up anywhere, instead of with our expert guidance throughout 2018 our clients have been shown options that fit perfectly with the look they are trying to achieve.

By assessing natural light patterns, current tastes and what would be possible within the budget we are able to provide you with our recommendations that have led to many happy customers.

And how you can introduce these into your own home, bringing a modern twist to the feel of your home and hitting the sweet spot for visual impressions.

Perfect if you have visitors due round that hasn’t visited in a while and you want to impress or end the gentle jibes about you needing to freshen up the place.

By selecting the right colour combinations you can adjust to your own perfectly suited tastes, staying on-trend yet not seeming samey, there’s a fine line between inspiration and copying depending on the perspectives drawn.

Throughout this last year we have seen our top picks feature in a variety of spaces and work just as well in bedrooms as they could in through spaces and lounges, so in essence, you’ll have a palette full of colours that will bring your property right up to date

Each of the handpicked colours has been used directly by us throughout this year, bringing a modern look and feel to homes across Surrey and London.  Our clients have been thrilled with the finished projects, sophisticated finishes and overall vibe exuded.

So this concludes Freshlook favourite Farrow and Ball for 2018, we wonder which colours will remain just as popular in the upcoming year and what they have up their sleeves from the colour mixing magicians…
