Farrow & Ball's Latest Wallpaper Collection: Baroque

We have been fans of Farrow & Ball paint for years. Their tightly edited collection of color has a depth whose surface is only scratched by their evocative names: Mouse's Back, Elephant's Breath, and Smoked Trout are a few of our favorites. The purity of their pigments, natural ingredients and zero VOCs means they're often our first stop when it's time to personalize our space. So we were excited when we got a chance to preview their latest collection of wallpaper, printed from those same paints.

Inspired by the style and swagger of the early 18th century, the three patterns—Orangerie, Versailles and Acathus—of the Baroque collection take their cue from that time's playfully dramatic exuberance. The papers, which are block printed in England on FSC-certified paper, are not only beautiful but incredibly tactile, with a velvety richness and depth that comes from the many layers of paint. And, because the papers are printed from the paints, it means that the wallpapers and the paints can be seamlessly combined. Available in twenty-one color combinations selected from the line's palette, they can be modern or traditional, girlishly feminine or boldly masculine depending on the color.
