Farrow and Ball New White is the colour of this gorgeous lamp. An absolutely perfect match for the original coating of this White Company beauty.

New White is described by Farrow and Ball as 'lighter and warmer than the much used Off-White. An ideal white for use with some of the brighter colours'.

I must confess that I'm not entirely familiar with Off White and, as such, for the sake of this post, I'm going to assume you share my ignoramousness and tell you what New White is really like.

Farrow and Ball's New White is most certainly in the clutches of white (as opposed to pale yellow, or soft taupe) but has a definite creamy vibe.

This particular Farrow and Ball paint is not at all stark, and lacks any modern-minded coolness. Instead, New White evokes a soft, country feel, which makes it the perfect off-white to tone with the gently mellow decor of our girls' bedroom.

By going to the Gorgeous Paints tab at the top of Modern Country Style (see it up there?), you can browse my Colour Studies at your leisure. Or, takes the lazy girls' route and get click-happy with the links below...


ALL the Colour Studies are of colours that I've used {and loved} myself. Included are lots of images of each paint in lots of different situations and lots of different lights to give you a really full understanding. No one likes nasty paint surprises, do they?

For example, look how different New White looks when the sky outside is drab and overcast...

Almost all its creaminess disappears.

Suddenly it becomes very ivory indeed.

Farrow and Ball's New White is one of those classic creamy whites that will never date, offend or strain the eyes. Enjoy!
