RUGS AND CARPETING
To celebrate its 70th anniversary, the
Dorset, England, paint and wallpaper
company Farrow & Ball (farrow-ball.
com) introduced nine paint colors into
its carefully curated palette of 132 hues,
which are often as admired for their
unique names as for their high quality.
We chose (above clockwise from top
left) Cromarty, Yeabridge Green,
Worsted, Vardo, Shadow White, and
Peignoir. Yeabridge Green is named
after a color found in the cupboard of
an 18th-century Georgian farmhouse in
Somerset, England, and Peignoir refers
to the silk dressing gown traditionally
worn by a woman while brushing her
hair before bed. Shadow White, on the
other hand, speaks for itself.
