Meet Joa Studholme

As our Colour Curator and author of Farrow & Ball titles including Recipes for Decorating and How to Decorate, it’s no surprise that Joa Studholme knows our palette and finishes inside and out.

Joa has been with Farrow & Ball for over 25 years – in that time, she’s developed colour ranges and consulted on design projects all over the world, as well as helping countless colour consultancy customers to transform their homes.

Booking your colour consultancy with Joa is a wonderful opportunity to share your vision for your home with our original Colour Consultant, and makes for an extra-special experience. Putting your own tastes, ideas and lifestyle at the forefront of every decision, Joa will work with you in the comfort of your own home to create easy-to-follow schemes for up to four rooms, taking the stress out of choosing colours and finishes.

Colour consultation with Joa starts at £250 per hour for an online appointment or £300 per hour for an in-home appointment – to book, please email
