Farrow & Ball Collaborates With Kelly Wearstler on Paint Collection

An eight-color paint palette dreamed up by interiors impresario Kelly Wearstler marks British maker Farrow & Ball’s first collaboration with an outside designer in its 75-year history. Dubbed the California collection, the series of water-based low-VOC paints is available in all standard Farrow & Ball finishes. The richly pigmented offerings have the diffuse, atmospheric quality of colors viewed in the clear, bright SoCal light. Consider Citrona, an earthy chartreuse inspired by lemon trees; Palm, a desaturated green that’s a paean to the titular tree; Salt, a crisp white conjuring Pacific Ocean air; Hazy, a muted blue-gray the color of a foggy morn; and Stoke, the exact gray of a cloudy coastal day. “Color is the spirit of a room,” Wearstler says. How quintessentially Cali.
