Farrow and Ball say…

This enduring colour is a dark version of a Farrow & Ball classic Pigeon, hence being named after the green variety of the same species. Although traditional in feel, Treron is perfect for modern homes where lots of natural materials are used or as an accent for both French Gray and our Traditional Neutrals.

I love this press shot from Farrow and Ball, pairing Treron with lots of white.

Modern Country Style says….

Farrow and Ball have really come up trumps with Treron; it’s another one of their cusp colours – that is, you’re never sure whether you’ve been gazing at a grey, a stony greige, a green or a khaki. This one’s a winner as an exterior paint because its stronger tones will retaliate against the bleaching qualities of the sun. And for furniture too, toning beautifully with Hardwick White walls, for those who find the green of Treron a little strong. 

But let’s forget about the gloriously luring temptation of the perfectly styled press shots for a moment. This is how Farrow and Ball Treron really looks…

It’s important to note that under artificial light, Treron takes on a distinctly darker, olive hue. This is not a colour that will fade into the background but, rather, a statement, a centrepiece in itself.

Take a look at how Treron becomes a feature wall in a bedroom by crapadventurer and see what I mean. 

But, with lots of light, and judicious use, I think Farrow and Ball Treron fits perfectly into Modern Country Style homes.

…particularly those of you who have a love for the natural, earthy look. A piece or two painted in Farrow and Ball Treron will just sparkle and shine. Though not literally. Unless you’re using gloss. But I digress…
