Six Neutral Families

Farrow & Ball neutrals are far from impartial. We believe there are six core neutral families, all of which work well as colour schemes in their own right, as well as providing a strong foundation for every other colour on the card.

Whether you are drawn to the pretty yellow-based neutrals or the architectural blue-based greys; choosing your favourite neutral group is the best place to start when decorating.

Selecting the right neutral group for you is easy – which colour family are you most drawn to? From this point you can begin to build a decorating scheme accented with bolder colours and wallpapers that flows throughout your home.

Once you’ve chosen your neutral family you can be confident that using these colours in combination in a space will create a cohesive look. So whether you choose to use a darker tone on the walls with crisp white woodwork, or a darker shade on the woodwork with lighter walls to create more light and space, the colour scheme will work.

Browse your favourite neutral groups to discover more about the look and feel they will create in your home, as well as complementary colours and wallpapers for each group.
