We’re thrilled to announce the launch of a brand new Farrow & Ball book, our first since How to Decorate hit the shelves in 2016.

Recipes for Decorating is our new guide to bringing your home to life with paint and paper, written by our Colour Curator Joa Studholme and brimming with beautiful photos of real Farrow & Ball homes and schemes to help you recreate the look.

Combining inspirational imagery with practical advice for creating your dream home, it’s an invaluable sourcebook for anyone wanting to explore the possibilities of colour and finish, and makes the perfect companion to How to Decorate.

A sneak peek of Recipes for Decorating

While you’re waiting for your copy to arrive, we’ve got a little something to whet your appetite – here’s a taster of Joa’s tried-and-tested recipes, showing you three failsafe combinations for making over a hallway.


“This is usually the first part of your home that you or any guest will see, making it a great place to start. Large patterns, as on the Tessella wallpaper in the Nouvelle Cuisine recipe, are good at making small spaces feel bigger, whereas a grand, airy entrance using the Classic recipe will be timeless. The Fusion recipe will add a touch of drama to any hall, big or small, and make adjoining rooms feel spacious and light in comparison.”
