Farrow & Ball Paints


I've been enamored with Farrow & Ball paints ever since I ordered their color card. They offer 132 "paired down" paint colors and they are all gorgeous. Their paints have a lot of depth and pigment and give a wall so much richness. I especially love their dark moody colors and find that they are flexible enough to work in a room filled with a lot of natural sunlight or in one without a lot of natural light. In a darker room Farrow & Balls darker colors have a lovely enveloping effect and works especially well in a library/study or office.
I also love to bring along Farrow's color card to client meetings because with less colors to choose from clients can easily point out the colors they are automatically drawn without becoming overwhelmed by too many choices. Check out all their colors here.

Lovin' Me Some Neutral Rooms

Lately I've been drawn to neutrals. I love a neutral room because it makes you pay attention to contrast, texture, shapes, and scale. All design elements that can be easily overlooked when there is a lot of color and pattern going on in a space. Neutral rooms are also very calming and sophisticated without being uninviting or cold. By layering texture and tonal colors you can achieve a lovely cosy-casual feel. I have some clients who are going in this direction and I'm so excited to work on these projects. (And I'll to be sure to share!) In the meantime, here are some images to inspire!









Even a babies nursery can be neutral without being boring. So chic!


So what do you think of neutral spaces? I'd love to hear!
