This article highlights 10 favorite Farrow and Ball green and blue paint colors. Some of my past interior decorating clients requested Farrow & Ball colors in their homes and as I grew more familiar with their brand I decided it was time to share the knowledge with my readers!
Why Farrow & Ball Paint
Farrow & Ball has an excellent reputation for deep pigmented colors, depth of color, and quality paint. While the brand is based in the UK, paint can be ordered in the US through local stores and online through stores like Anthropologie. On a personal note I think the names of their paint colors are charming! And I like that there are reviews on their website of each color.
In this article I share information about each color with interior and exterior examples. Room photos below are shown with written permission, and are credited and linked to the original image source.
Quick Tip: This article includes the LRV value for each paint color. On the LRV scale, O absorbs all light (black) and 100 reflects all light (white). I organized the paint colors below from lightest to darkest.
