It’s been a while since I posted any wallpaper here but as soon as I happened across the latest additions to the Farrow & Ball portfolio I just knew that I wanted to share them with you. As you know, wallpaper makes my heart melt and the bolder the better as far as I’m concerned. And these new wallpapers from Farrow & Ball certainly stand out. There are four distinctive new patterns that capture rustic elements and embrace nature whilst at the same time adding a contemporary twist to classic designs. Each design is available in five colourways, ranging from natural neutrals to bright and bold colour combinations. It seems like only yesterday that Farrow & Ball announced their new paint colours for 2013 and now these wallpaper designs are the first to include the new colours, including Stiffkey Blue, Mole’s Breath, Purbeck Stone, Cooking Apple Green and Green Smoke. So let’s take a look at them and see what you think.
A tropical display of the fragrant, leafy plant found in the warmer climes, this print has been taken from the Farrow & Ball archives and reinvented with new colour combinations that are both classic and contemporary.
The perfect celebration of this delicate, wild plant, that thrives on our British coastline. Farrow & Ball has injected new life into an archived design, creating a tantalising pattern which is both small and fascinating.
A contemporary interpretation of the classic herringbone parquet floor. The pattern encompasses the grainy look of this traditional design, whilst bringing a new, almost tribal feel. Available in tone on tone and more dramatic three colour prints.
A classic stripe will always demand attention. Trough printed, this stripe holds its own, with up to four colours featured at one time. Versatile and timeless, you can hang the paper horizontally, vertically, or reverse hang to create a bolder stripe double the width.
So which one of these stunning papers is your favourite? Mine has to be Samphire 4005 which is the one in blue and I think it would look absolutely fantastic in my bedroom! But I’m also pretty keen on Parquet, it’s a tough decision that’s for sure!
