Well, bonjour, my bonbons,
Isn’t it wonderful having all this Spring in the air? Are you feeling the love? Let me introduce you to a particularly longstanding love of my life: Farrow and Ball Blue Gray, inspired by the gorgeous Georgian I shared with you..
I have a question for you, Mr Farrow and Mr Ball….You’re the epitome of an British company so why do you insist on spelling ‘grey’ the American way? Yup: Blue Gray. That’s how they spell it. English company, American spelling? Not sure what’s going on with that….
Bankruptcy by sample pots?
You know its coming….!
I’ve only selected pictures that I think are accurate reflections of what the colour really looks like, discarding those where the image has been tweaked beyond recognition or the flash has distorted the appearance of the colours.
And as a painted kitchen colour, I still think Farrow and Ball Blue Gray is one of the best shades out there. Classic, warm and timeless….
The main thing that I need to tell you about Blue Grey is its intensity accumulates more than any other colour I’ve worked with. Particularly around internal corners and with a lack of natural light.Look at the shadowy internal corner of the picture below. See how much darker and more intense the colour is than on the chimney breast?
And the second thing is that it’s surprisingly green for a colour called Blue Gray.
Really surprisingly green.
The more natural light you have in your room, the more of this gorgeous colour you can use.
It’s such a lovely colour. Warm and welcoming.
It’s astonishing how much Farrow and Ball Blue Gray changes in the light!
Take Care Till Next Time,
