ABOUT GREEN SMOKE

The smoky green blue that we call Green Smoke was a popular colour in interiors during the late 19th century, and it’s been a firm Farrow & Ball favourite for decades too.

Part of the reason for its enduring popularity is its ability to look good on any indoor or outdoor surface (and trust us, we’ve tried a few). Used outdoors, Green Smoke feels lived-in and familiar in the best way, creating doors, windows and conservatories that feel like they’ve always been there. Indoors, it fits effortlessly into both contemporary and traditional palettes, creating spaces feel elegant and serene.

HOW TO USE GREEN SMOKE

 “Everybody loves Green Smoke,” says Patrick O’Donnell, “and this is one of my favourite ways to use it – in a kitchen.

Green Smoke in Modern Eggshell for your kitchen units, paired with the really lovely, timeless Bone in Modern Emulsion for your walls, and School House White on your ceiling and other trim. It’s a really classic, elegant scheme – totally timeless and really beautiful to live with.”
