Bring Splashes of Nature to Your Home!

Under the pandemic, going out to nature and having a deep relaxing breath to rejuvenate our senses can be quite a luxury to many of us. Fortunately, it is now in fact possible to bring nature into your cozy home with the help of some paints! Collaborating with the Natural History Museum in London, Farrow and Ball now has a new line of 16 paints inspired by the German geologist Abraham Gottlob Werner’s taxonomic guide to the colours in Nature - Nomenclature of Colours. Now, shall we see some of the magnificent colours that are inspired by the animals, plants and minerals from our dear mother nature?

W92 Lake Red


Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tone
Bold and daring, Lake Red can be found on the red tulips out there in nature. If you are the type of person who feels blue easily being trapped indoors, this shade of energetic red may be an easy solution to cheer you up!

W76 Dutch Orange


Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones
Does this colour remind you of a red orpiment as mentioned in Werner’s book? Together with green or white, Dutch Orange can certainly add an endearing sense of warmth and vividness to any rooms anytime.

W93 Crimson Red


Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Red & Warm Tones
Perhaps reminding many people of Garnet, the birthstone of January and the soft petals of some pink roses being carried on Valentine’s Day, Crimson Red is definitely a gentle romantic colour. When paired with W24 Scotch Blue, its glamorous aura can even be heightened as well.

W55 Duck Green


Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones
As suggested by its name, Duck Green is often spotted at the neck of a male mallard and also the leaves of Yew Trees. Deep, wise and strong, Duck Green can be the perfect option for you if you are looking for a colour that goes well with the modern and contemporary households of yours.

W24 Scotch Blue


Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones
Similar to the hue manifested in a precious blue copper ore, Scotch Blue per se carries a sophisticated and profound feeling of luxury. Do you think kicking off the Monday blue with Scotch Blue in your living room after a long day of work sounds like an enchanting idea?
