Colour expert Joa Studholme of Farrow & Ball has revealed how to create warm and inviting spaces that enrich the home this year

Embracing the use of bolder and saturated colours in the home inspires relaxation and comfort.

“The most important aspect of using colour in 2020 is to create spaces that are warm and welcoming for our friends and family – colours that make us feel proud of our homes,” explains Joa Studholme, Colour Curator at Farrow & Ball.

“Strong colours suit rooms we use at the end of the day when we want to relax and be comforted. As we become increasingly environmentally aware, we crave a connection with the colours of nature, so deep Duck Green and earthy, organic Sap Green feel perfect for the home in 2020.”

Duck Green is strong and subdued, but achingly fashionable.

While having an air of nostalgia, it is the perfect contemporary alternative to charcoal in modern homes and is ideal to create spaces in which to curl up at the end of the day.

Incredibly chic by day, and cosy by night, it brings a grounded but luxurious atmosphere to any room.

Try it with Light Gray on woodwork and Ash Grey on the ceiling for a truly timeless feel.

Earthy Sap Green, which reflects the colour of nature, has an organic feel that creates the perfect welcoming start to the journey through your home, so is perfect in small intimate halls.

The richness of this irresistible colour will make all the rooms off it look bigger and lighter, while bringing a little of the exterior inside.

Use it with Setting Plaster and Hay to create a delightful mid-century modern feel.

“These are colours that anchor our homes, remind us of our childhoods and indeed are perfect for family life. They are traditional but with a twist.”

Farrow & Ball is dedicated to creating richly pigmented paint and handcrafted wallpaper using only the finest quality ingredients.

Deepening from subtle neutrals to dark inky blues, each paint shade is created with a blend of up to five pigments for an extraordinary depth of colour. Responding characterfully to all types of light, the varying undertones within every hue gently shift in light and shade to bring homes to life.

From the signature chalky matt of Estate Emulsion to the durability of washable Modern Emulsion, Farrow & Ball’s distinctive palette is available in a full range of high-performance interior and exterior finishes.

Based in Dorset, England since 1946, Farrow & Ball’s expert craftsmen combine traditional methods with contemporary technology to create richly pigmented paints and handcrafted wallpapers.

With responsible practices, eco-friendly formulas and recyclable materials, Farrow & Ball is committed to reducing its impact on the earth without compromising on quality.
