Farrow & Ball has been the go-to paint purveyor for perfectly polished English interiors since 1930. The company is very selective about its colors, which consist of a tight collection that never goes above or below 132 paint colors.

They just introduced nine new colors during the London Design Festival that left designers and home enthusiasts excited about paint again. The nine new colors are the first released by the company since 2016. They’re perfectly on trend, yet also bound to be classic enough for the most traditional home. They are available at a showroom near you, or online.

Here are the nine new paint colors by Farrow and Ball

1. Treron No. 292

Treron No. 292 is a darker, richer version of one of Farrow & Ball’s best selling colors: Pigeon. It’s one of two greens introduced. The new deep olive shade works well in nearly any design style where you want to update the space and also create a more intimate setting.

The grey-green shade adds contrast to a crisp, white farmhouse-style kitchen. It also works well with cool tones like whites, blues and greys.

2. Sulking Room Pink No. 295

Sulking Room Pink No. 295 is a grown-up pink. Earthy and muted, the rose shade pairs well with ivories as well as warm wood tones.

The dreamy, romantic pink would be a good addition to a bedroom, reading nook or bathroom.

3. De Nimes No. 299

The name and shade derive from the everyday work fabric made in the French city of Nimes. According to Farrow & Ball, De Nimes No. 299 is, “Like denim, its blue hue is ultimately fashionable and yet always feels grounded.”

The grounding shade of blue adds a zen feeling to any space. It’s a great paint tone for kitchen cabinets or in a master bathroom.

4. School House White No. 291

When a basic white looks cold and ordinary, choose the new School House White No. 291. It’s the lightest color of the introductions and is inspired by what white would look like after many years in an old school house.

The soft white shade is perfect for refreshing wood paneling. For a soothing, monochromatic effect, use various tones of the white hue in furniture, surfaces and textiles.

5. Bancha No. 298

A very modern green, Bancha No. 298 flows well with mid-century modern furniture. The serene green complements warm, natural wood tones. According to Farrow & Ball: “Named after Japanese tea leaves, Bancha, like a cup of green tea, provides a feeling of security.”

A dramatic focal wall painted in the new green adds to the mid-century modern design of this kitchen interior.

6. Preference Red No. 297

Preference Red No. 297 is sure to be one of the company’s most beloved colors. Farrow and Ball also seem to think so – they named the deep red after the company’s original name, Preference Paints.

Designed to pair well with the new colors, Farrow and Ball says this red is, “striking when seen in combination with Paean Black and Sulking Room Pink.”

7. Paean Black No. 294

Paean Black No. 294 is a hybrid of deep indigo, ink and black with red undertones to create a rich, violet tone. Although Georgian-inspired to work with the most traditional rooms, the deep color can also be very contemporary.

A bathroom is partially painted in Paean Black No. 294 in order to add warmth and intimacy to the white design. Lavender and grey accents also work well with the color.

8. Jitney No. 293

Here’s a coastal-chic color that can freshen up a space. Jitney No. 293 may be muted, but the shade, according to Farrow & Ball, “is meant to evoke lazy days by the sea, hence being named after the bus that whisks New Yorkers to the similarly colored sandy beaches of the Hamptons.”

The neutral, sand-inspired color is saturated enough to add depth to a room. Similar to a light mocha shade, you can layer various neutrals of browns, ivories and greys together for a modern look.

9. Rangwali No. 296

Rangwali No. 296 is the most daring of the nine new Farrow and Ball shades. Named after the bright powder thrown during the Holi festival of colors in India, its depth comes from the addition of a small amount of black pigment.

Add a tropical touch to your setting by painting a wall in Rangwali No. 296. Pair the color with bright yellow and orange accents and decor for a summer vibe.
