Farrow & Ball is a leading producer of high-end paint and luxury wallpaper, and their design experts share their wisdom for creating harmonious interiors and beautify home décor in this inspirational yet practical guide.

The experts at Farrow & Ball have created a primer on winning color combinations created for every room of the home. At the heart of the book are fifteen case studies of inspirational interiors—a city apartment, a country cottage, a seaside escape, a schoolhouse repurposed for residential use—which are explored to reveal how selecting the right range and combination of colors creates a harmonious whole. For each case study there is a detailed color palette that acts like a recipe with a menu of ideas to copy. Color is then considered room by room, showing how to combine color with light and space to get the most of every area of the house, be it a large kitchen, a cozy bedroom, or a relaxed study.

Paint pioneers John Farrow and Richard Ball founded their company in 1946 in Dorset, England, where the company is still based. Farrow & Ball—famed for their traditional classic paints and revived heritage colors—is one of the world’s leading home decorating brands, manufacturing decorative paint and wallpaper that transform homes around the globe.
