Spring is here: the days are getting lighter, the evenings longer and the sun has finally returned to bathe us in dazzling natural light. March’s ‘Colour of the Month’ comes as a complement to the natural world in the form of Farrow & Ball’s Pale Powder – a much lighter shade of green than the popular ‘Vert De Terre’ from the Accents range.
Perfect for east-facing rooms, Pale Powder is an ideal accent to the blue hue that often comes from early-morning light, whilst not appearing too cold and retaining the warmth of the dawn. Combining cool blue-greens like this shade with wood of darker shades (such as our walnut or iroko wooden kitchen worktops) can be valuable, and will help achieve the best balance of brightness throughout the day.
Firmly in the realms of ‘duck egg’ colouring, Pale Powder can look closer to blue in some lights, and pale green at other times of day, adding real airiness to any solid wood kitchens that aren’t blessed with south-facing light.
If you’re interested in seeing what the finished colour looks like outside of your computer’s screen, we recommend taking advantage of our great-value sample service – or even better, pop in to our Gloucester showroom and familiarise yourself with our entire Farrow & Ball collection.
