How Light Affects Colour

Farrow and Ball paint has an extraordinary response to light and will change as exposure meets the paint. By paying attention to the direction the room faces, north, south, east or west, you can determine which colors and tones are best for your décor.

Northern light brings out a colour’s cool tones. So, it is important to avoid anything with a green or grey base. Warmer, yellow based colours will encourage light to bounce around the room. Another option is embracing the cooler light that northern exposure brings and create a cozy, comforting space with darker hues like Down Pipe or Railings.

Farrow and Ball Paint Finishes

Estate® Emulsion is Farrow and Ball’s signature chalky, very matt finish.  Carefully crafted to give a flatter finish, its 2% sheen level responds extraordinarily to all types of light. Estate Emulsion is a sophisticated choice for interior walls and ceilings – perfectly suited for less busy areas such as bedrooms and living rooms.
