The return of retro…

As we start to think about decorating our homes for Autumn, why not consider some of these trendy colours.


As Pantone’s colour of the year, Ultra-violet is beginning to come into its own. A good option for this blue-based purple is Little Greene’s Thai Sapphire (116). Don’t worry if you are not feeling brave enough for this bold hue, you can use softer purples and lilacs to trickle the trend into your home. Try Farrow & Ball’s Brassica (271) or Calluna (270).


Blush is the colour that doesn’t quit. This pink is a trend that has stuck, but pairing this hue with new accessories and accents can give the space a whole new look! Blush can take many forms, from deep blush to nude tones to sugary pink, so experiment with some sample pots and see which you prefer. Here are some examples: Farrow & Ball Setting Plaster (231), Dead Salmon (28), Pink Ground (202), Mylands Threadneedle (262), Palmerston Pink (243), Bloomsbury (267).


This chic colour teams with blush and ultra-violet beautifully but works equally well alone as an accent colour to neutral interiors . The warm tones of terracotta balance the blue undertones of ultra violet. Farrow & Ball’s Red Earth is great for a light, welcoming terracotta red.


These retro colours are making their comeback and just in time to add some colour and warmth to cool, airy spaces.

Don’t worry if you can’t find a colour you love because Farrow & Ball are launching new colours this September!
