Dive into the timeless elegance of The Greenwich Edit.

A collection of colours curated by local Farrow & Ball Colour Consultant Kathleen Brennan, this edit pays homage to the rich heritage, prestigious architecture, and idyllic coastal living of this historic town.

Capture the essence of Greenwich, Connecticut in your home.


Build spaces that exude refinement and sophistication.

All White – this clean white, neither warm nor cool, is reminiscent of the crisp table linens found in the local fine eateries. 

Wimborne White – a classic creamy white, much like beautiful English roses found in the gardens of backcountry estates. 

Strong White – a weighted, modern white, conjuring imagery of canvas sails seen tacking back and forth on Long Island Sound. 

Slipper Satin – this delicate neutral pays homage to the performing arts, taking its name from the silk used on ballet slippers.

Let your spaces tell a story with a mix of cool and warm grays to create an atmosphere of opulence or provide a backdrop for elements of accentuating details.

Ammonite – a warm, soft gray, like that of the weathered clapboard or shingles seen on many of the town’s older homes. 

Worsted – like the fine wool fabric used for bespoke suits, this warm, deep gray creates a sense of coziness wherever it is used. 

Blackened – a cool, pale gray like a soft early-morning rain. 

Manor House Gray – the name says it all. Like the many fine homes found in the town of Greenwich, this strong mid-weight gray makes a statement.

Our historic blues offer shades to transform your home into a sanctuary of dedicated sophistication.

Borrowed Light – the softest of blues, it whispers of summer garden parties.  

Parma Gray – mirrors the color of blue skies on a warm, hazy day. 

De Nimes – a denim blue, familiar and comfortable, that works to create a sense of calm.  

Hague Blue – a deep marine blue, mysterious in its changeability like the ocean whose luminous waters border the town.

Picture the verdant beauty of the sprawling estates and manicured gardens. These hues reflect the town’s surroundings, with a versatile range of colours that can be mixed and matched, shared and loved. 

Paean Black – like the skin of a ripe eggplant found at the town farmer’s market, this luscious deep purple adds stately elegance to the home. 

Green Smoke – with green in its name, how can our list not include a green for Greenwich? This deep blue green speaks to the backwoods forests and the curling smoke of a savored cigar.  

Railings – as the name implies, this black with a blue undertone is reminiscent of the decorative ironwork gates seen around town. 

India Yellow – this rich gold harks back to the Greenwich’s early founding in the 17th century, with a unique and versatile application of a timeless hue.
