A Down to Earth and Grounding Blue


This quietly elegant blue feels wonderfully down to earth, so could be used on anything from a kitchen island to an airy drawing room. The exact shade is rooted in a regency palette but is inspired by the cloth of everyday workwear made in the French city Nîmes. Like denim, its blue hue is ultimately fashionable and yet always feels grounded.

Fascinated by the endless possibilities offered by colour combinations, she thrives in her role as a Colour Consultant for Farrow & Ball.
