Vintage style

The fashion obsession with all things 'vintage' has filtered through to home décor, and Farrow & Ball's powdery paint colours can create a look that seems to have evolved over time
Just as clothes are being layered on the catwalk, the link between fashion and home décor is demonstrated in the layering of colours within one space.

To achieve this glamorous look, use several tones within one room in delicate candy colours to create a perfect alternative to starkly neutral schemes.

Pretty Farrow & Ball shades such as ‘Setting Plaster®’ and ‘Pink Ground®’ are key to this romantic, girly look.

Accents of dark stormy greys, khaki greens and chocolate browns, such as ‘Mouse’s Back®’, or highlights of mint and duck-egg blues, such as ‘Teresa’s Green®’, work equally well with these soft muted shades, evoking a world of faded elegance and sensuality.
