Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during my colour consultation?

During your appointment, your Colour Consultant will talk through your ideas and needs for the space – everything from what time of day you use a room to the features and furniture you want to highlight.

Then they’ll look at the light and architecture of your space and suggest schemes to bring your style to life. Your Colour Consultant will also suggest the best finish for each room, for example super tough Modern Emulsion is best for bathrooms.

Do I need to prepare anything for a colour consultation?

Before your appointment, it’s a good idea to think about how you use your space and the look or feel you want to create. You might find it helpful to note down a few colours and inspirational ideas – whether it’s a few images or a full mood board. You can then share these ideas with your Colour Consultant (over the phone for in-home consultancies or through an online questionnaire for virtual ones), so they can start to prepare the perfect scheme for you.

How long does an appointment last?

The amount of time you’ll need for your consultancy will vary depending on the complexity and scale of your space, with In-home consultations starting at 1 hour. When booking, our team will discuss your plans with you to recommend an appropriate amount of time. If you find you want more time with your consultant, they’d be more than happy to book in additional blocks of 30 minutes.

What’s the difference between an in-home and virtual consultancy?

Both in-home and virtual appointments give you unrivalled colour advice that helps you to create a space you love.


An in-home consultation means just that: your Colour Consultant will come to your home. This means they can walk around the space and see any materials you’ve gathered in person. It’s a great choice for people who prefer to speak face-to-face.

Book an in-home colour consultancy


A virtual appointment is carried out over a video call, so your Colour Consultant can still look at the light, architecture and features of your space but they won’t be there in person. To get the best from a Farrow & Ball virtual colour consultancy, you’ll need a tablet or mobile phone, ideally with HD video and photo capabilities. Virtual appointments are currently only available in the UK and North America, however other locations may be available on request.

Can I request a specific Farrow & Ball Colour Consultant?

The exception to this is Joa Studholme, Colour Curator for Farrow & Ball, who can be booked directly via Or Patrick O'Donnell, Brand Ambassador, who is bookable here.
