Farrow & Ball | Selvedge No. 306 (NEW!)
=A lighter, less grey version of popular De Nimes, Selvedge is named after the highly prized denim woven on a shuttle loom to produce closed edges. It’s particularly good in low-light spaces, creating a familiar and friendly atmosphere, making it suited to bedrooms or rooms you spend time in, in the evening. It pairs beautifully with accents of darker colours like Hopper Head.
Starting back in 1946, Dorset, Farrow & Ball has created quite the name for themselves. They use only the finest materials to create their signature chalky Estate Emulsion finish which put them on the map. Many people may argue the feel of the paint is entirely pointless, but they may only be arguing such in a physical realm. Farrow & Ball explains: "From passing clouds and the dipping sun to the glow of bulbs and the flicker of a fire, our paint colours gently shift in light and shade, bringing added complexity to your decorative scheme. The same colour in the same space can feel bright and airy in the morning sun, soft and gentle in the afternoon light, or cocooning and intimate by the evening. This is because our immersive paint colours are blended with a balance of rich pigments and generous amounts of light-reflecting titanium dioxide, meaning that, as the day goes on, the varying undertones in every hue can become more or less prominent." The feel of these colours are simply unmatched.
