13 Inspiring Farrow & Ball Kitchen Colour Ideas

1.Farrow & Ball Railings Kitchen

Are you a fan of dark interiors and want to add a dramatic edge to your kitchen? The colour Railings by Farrow & Ball is a softer alternative to black but still offers the same impact. 

Pitch black can sometimes feel a little too harsh depending on what kind of space it’s used in, so Railings will work well in more compact kitchens that don’t have as much natural light available.

Pair Railings with brushed brass hardware to add a touch of glamour.

2. Two Tone Kitchen

Create a two tone paint effect in your kitchen to add depth and interest. The kitchen pictured below features the Farrow & Ball shades Pigeon and Green Smoke, which complement each other perfectly. 

It’s a good idea to choose two shades that have the same undertones if you want to create a cohesive scheme. Alternatively, be brave and choose two contrasting colours to make a real design statement.

3. A Timeless Grey Kitchen

A classic grey kitchen is a timeless design choice. Make sure you pick the right shade of grey for your space, this can depend on a number of different factors. For example, if your kitchen is north facing you won’t have much natural light available so you may want to opt for a warmer ‘greige’ shade to balance out the tones.

Conversely, if your kitchen is a big open-plan design, you can get away with choosing a cool toned grey that will leave your space feel fresh and bright.

The kitchen shown here is beautifully hand-painted in Manor House Grey.

4. Combine Neutral Tones With A Stand Out Shade

If you’re lucky enough to have a kitchen island then you may want to make a bold statement out of it. Opt for a neutral kitchen but then make your island or breakfast bar pop by painting the cabinetry a stand out shade.

The kitchen pictured below has an island painted in Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball, which is one of their all time popular shades – and for good reason! It’s a rich navy blue colour which has bundles of depth to it and adds style to any space.

5. Farrow and Ball Cat’s Paw Kitchen

Love neutrals but can’t find the right shade of beige that offers the amount of depth and vibrancy that you’re after? Then Cat’s Paw by Farrow & Ball might just be the perfect shade.

It’s a yellow earth-toned neutral that in some lights looks beige and in others, offers a glimpse of sunshine yellow. Pair Cat’s Paw with a wooden kitchen for a modern Scandi-inspired look.

6. Setting Plaster & Emerald Green For A Sweet Look

Pink and green is a winning colour combination for a contemporary home. Setting Plaster by Farrow & Ball is an iconic shade. As the name suggests it mimics the look of plaster, so it is a subtle shade of pink that is a great alternative to a standard neutral.

Paired with Emerald Green, this colour contrast is truly show stopping and creates a kitchen space any colour fanatic would be proud of.

7. Another Example of Why A Pink & Green Kitchen Just Works…

For a more subtle pink and green contrast, be inspired by Sascal Studio and opt for Mizzle and Calamine. This gives off more of a softer pastel look that may be more appropriate for a neutral setting that wants to evoke a sense of calm. 

Brighten things up by pairing a pink and green kitchen with white quartz or laminate worktops and classic subway tiles.

Pink has been on trend for a while now and for good reason! It’s gone through many phases and there are lots of different shades of pink to suit different styles and spaces.

10. Make A Statement With Etruscan Red

Red kitchens went through a phase of being highly unfashionable, however red is back and bigger than ever. Red glossy cabinets are still a no no but painted wooden cabinetry in a statement shade of red can look beautiful in the right setting.

Rather than committing to painting a whole kitchen red, opt for a two tone effect or perhaps paint your kitchen island rusty red to make it stand out.
