Farrow and Ball colours released in 2022

Farrow and Ball released a set of eleven new colours in late 2022 “inspired by moments of joy, comfort and refreshment.”


In this blog we explore the best Farrow and Ball colours released in September 2022, as well as take a look at some of our customer’s favourite Farrow and Ball colours. The new paint shades are the first additions to Farrow & Ball\’s range since 2018 and range from charcoal grey to a forest green, with depth of colour and rich hues.

  • Kittiwake – a clean cool blue inspired by the wings of seabirds when seen in bright sunlight, that matches well with Wine Dark.
  • Selvedge – A laid back blue to create a familiar and friendly atmosphere and pairs well with Inchyra Blue or Hopper Head
  • Wine Dark – A rich, dark blue, perfectly suited for candlelight and intimacy, inspired by midnight skies.
  • Hopper Head – A classic charcoal inspired by the attractively designed iron containers used to catch rainwater at the top of a downpipe.
  • Bamboozle – A spirited, flame red, this fiery hue was originally used to describe the deceit of pirates. Bamboozle matches well to other rich colours such as Beverly and Wine Dark.
  • Templeton Pink – A historic-feeling pink, this shade was developed for the dining room at Templeton House to offset the magnificent Wedgwood plaques made to commemorate the former owner, although it suits a contemporary setting just as well.
  • Tailor Tack – a soft feathery putty colour that works well with both modern and traditional schemes.
  • Stirabout – an earthy, natural, nurturing tone with a grey undertone. Named by Farrow & Ball after Irish oatmeal, it is a comforting and relaxed colour.
  • Eddy – a gentle, natural green ideal for creating a calm relaxing room, complimented well by Beverly.
  • Whirlybird – a lively pale green, inspired by twirling helicopter seeds we played with as children.
  • Beverly – a clean forest green, dependable and uncomplicated.
