These are Farrow & Ball’s top 10 paint colours — and they’re almost all shades of white

What makes each pale hue different — and what rooms they’re best suited to.

U.K.-based retailer Farrow & Ball has been in the paint business since 1946 and is best known for richly pigmented colours (and beautifully patterned wallpapers.) Their products aren’t cheap, but are a favourite among decorators because of their superior quality. Farrow & Ball offers a range of 132 colours — a tastefully edited colour palette of greys, greens, red, yellows and neutral colours — but their top 10 bestselling colours around the world are nearly all white (there’s a few pale greys in there, too). And, from pure, stark whites to stoney greys, there’s a neutral for every room. Here’s a look at the top 10 — what makes them distinct, and what room they work best in.
