Farrow & Ball Paris Palette
Farrow & Ball has just launched a collection of wallpapers inspired by 19th and 20th-century French archive fashion fabrics. To celebrate, they asked me t curate a palette of Farrow & Ball paint colors and wallpapers inspired by my favorite city in the world.
I chose Hague Blue because it looks like the color of blue doors, Blackened because it reminds me of the grey sky and cobblestones, Borrowed Light because it is similar to color of shutters on old stone buildings, Skimming Stone is the color of the limestone buildings, Down Pipe is the same grey as the slate roofs, Green Ground because it reminds me of the green of Laduree, and Radicchio for the Moulin Rouge and the interiors of old French restaurants.
The Paisley Wallpaper BP 4706 is the same grey and stone as the Haussmann building, Bubble Bee Wallpaper BP 507 with gold reminds me of the kings of France and the gold on the Louvre and dome of the Institute de France, and the Feuille Wallpaper BP 4907 in green and blue reminded me of the pleached trees in the Palais Royal.
Below are some of my photos from my recent trips to Paris to illustrate my choices. Choosing the photos got me very excited for my trip for fashion week in two weeks.
The Farrow & Ball will have an interview with me on their site The Chromologist soon too.
À bientôt !
