Colour Palettes: The Key Neutral Groups

Choosing one of six neutral groups is a great way of achieve a cohesive, classic colour scheme for your space. Each of these colour groups contain four Farrow & Ball colours that fit seamlessly together for an understated look or as a base for bolder shades and patterns.

How To Choose A Neutral Colour Scheme?

  1. Begin by deciding which colour group you are most drawn to. By picking your favourite tones, you will create a welcoming retreat that naturally reflects your personality.
  2. Consider the light in your room. Would it benefit from warm undertones or would you like to embrace its cool light?
  3. Finally, think of the style of your home. If you would like more of a heritage feel, opt for the softer Traditional, Yellow Based and Red Based Neutrals. For a contemporary finish, try the subtle grey tones of our Contemporary, Easy and Architectural Neutrals.
  4. Remember your woodwork, ceiling, floors and doors. The transformation of a room may start with the walls, but for a carefully balanced scheme think of the room as a whole.

    Great post cheers guys! So hard choosing a colour scheme initially but this post helps narrow down what neutral to work off of. Have an app for the store colour consult next week so it’ll come in handy, cheers again
