Are you a big fan of Farrow & Ball paints and English country style like me? Released this month Farrow & Ball Living with Colour by Ros Byam Shaw, Ryland Peters & Small, $40, is jammed packed with colors to inspire from modern apartments to country homes. Best part of it all? Every interior shown gives Farrow & Ball paint color reference. Of course remember through the printing process colors change so always purchase a sample pot and test the paint on your own walls before choosing a color.
Above and below just a few of my favorite interiors. I realized after I pulled all the photos together that the colors are all really similar which is not the case with the book but just my personal preference. I love earthy greens and browns.
The first interior below is from Ben Pentreath’s country house. Remember him? He has a great shop in London and his apartment appeared in Shaw’s other book: Perfect English. I have a total crush on his design style.
The bathroom has become my favorite new inspiration—great color and love the sill. Want that kitchen, the plaid sofa, and how romantic is that molding painted ‘Calke Green’? Beautiful. Enjoy!
