Colour by Nature

Working in partnership with the Natural History Museum in London, eco-friendly paint maker Farrow & Ball has created Colour by Nature, a self-contained palette of 16 nature-inspired paint colours. Each hue is drawn directly from the natural world via Werner’s Nomenclature of Colours, the landmark classification of colour in nature that accompanied Charles Darwin on the 1831 voyage of HMS Beagle.

From the bright jewel tones of Lake Red and Verdigris Green to the rich intensity of Deep Reddish Brown, each shade is made with the signature mix of responsibly sourced pigments and eco-friendly water based formulas for which Farrow & Ball is known, and available in a range of high-performance finishes for interior and exterior surfaces.

In addition to the Colour by Nature collection, you can also browse the carefully curated palette of 132 colours from Farrow & Ball, which are all available to order online.
