Farrow & Ball – Hot Colours for 2012

Christmas is over and its time for a fresh start to the year, and theres nothing better than giving your store a fresh lick of paint to brighten it up.

Many independent retailers I visit love Farrow and Ball paints and im with them, yes they may be a little more expensive but they are superb quality and give great coverage.

Farrow and Ball have just released their paint trends for 2012.

So if you are thinking of refreshing your store or home take a look below and then click on their website link to find out more.

Unexpected colour combinations and colour blocking are the key looks for 2012. Strong greys are accented with warm yellows and clean blues for a really modern, graphic look, while subdued blue-greys and delicate purples remain fresh when paired with brighter colours in dynamic combinations.

Pigeon®, Brassica, Railings and Babouche® are all rich, nostalgic shades with an underlying quiet intensity that makes them perfectly suited to decorating trends in 2012.

Pigeon® – casual yet functional

In small spaces, Pigeon® can create an intimate feel, while in larger areas it has an unparalleled softness. Pair with All White and add an accent of Incarnadine® for a modern, atmospheric look.

Brassica – ethereal yet relaxed

Keep this nostalgic colour fresh and exciting by combining with Stone Blue® on the ceiling or evoke modern elegance by accenting Brassica with Dove Tale on woodwork and Strong White® on floors.

Railings – dramatic yet easy to live with

Soft, velvety, charcoal tone Railings can make real impact when used on floors, or as a feature wall alongside simple underplayed shades like Skylight or Cabbage White®.

Babouche® – effervescent, positive and fun

Make a bold statement with high-shine Babouche® in Full Gloss on walls to add a sense of fun to interiors. Combine with Plummett® for a vintage feel or, for a really contemporary scheme, pair with Blackened® in colour blocks on walls and Pavilion Gray on woodwork.
