Farrow & Ball

While we were in L.A. last week Matt and I popped into our friends Heather and John's new house that they are in the process of renovating and decorating. I asked about their paint selections while we went out for the best fish and chips west of the Mississippi because their colors are perfect—they're fun yet subtle, bold but not overpowering, elegant yet laid back. Usually when someone shows me a newly painted home there's a comment like "this room needs to be repainted because it turned out neon green". But Heather and John said Farrow & Ball made it really easy because their selection is already highly edited—everything they offer is great. In fact, I believe the collection consists of only 132 paint colors—which really does take away that overwhelming feeling of looking through those brick-sized booklets. What's even better about F&B is that their paints are some of the most environmentally friendly on the market and they do not use ammonia or formaldehyde in any of their interior paint formulations. Farrow & Ball have stockists and showrooms in most major cities in the U.S. as well as around the world. Click here to find your nearest retailer.

I just got my Farrow & Ball paint chips in the mail! I look forward to spending the weekend picking out a color for the bedroom, then maybe the hall, and the bathroom, the dining room..... Thanks for the tip.

See you Thursday.
