A chic red based black

This Georgian inspired red based black creates an intimate feel in super contemporary or bohemian homes, while adding a distinguished look to traditional exteriors. The perfect accent for all our reds and completing our range of blacks, Paean Black conjures up the shade of old leather hymnals and so is named after a song of praise.

Joanna Ajayi earned her BA in Architecture from London Metropolitan University and has worked at the Farrow & Ball Islington showroom for over five years. Being a Colour Consultant has enabled Joanna to explore her passion for colour, particularly its ability to transform a space and influence its inhabitants.

In this scheme created for a Georgian reception room, Joanna used rich Paean Black on the walls, paired with Shadow White to complement the high ceiling and detailed cornice and Hardwick White on woodwork. Pockets of vibrant emerald green, coral and mustard yellow complete the scheme, creating a cosy yet chic room.
