Winter’s Colours

Paint Colour: Farrow & Ball Hague Blue
Trim Colour: Farrow & Ball Old White

December 03, 2019

Maybe it’s because we’re moving into fall and winter but we’re crushing on Hague Blue from Farrow & Ball for a beautiful dark and moody navy room. And no, you don’t need to be scared of painting your room a dark colour. As long as there’s sufficient ambient (all-over) lighting, thoughtful accent lighting and effective task lighting, dark paint like Hague Blue is sophisticated, comfortable and welcoming. We would pair it with a deep bone trim like Farrow & Balls Old White. Although not white, against the Hague Blue it will appear almost white without too stark of a contrast.

We imagine a sophisticated urban couple, stylish with impeccable taste living in this room. Lots of books, collectibles and textures are set off by this deep navy hue. It’s all about maximum comfort without sacrificing absolute sophistication. To set off the dark navy walls, we would use light ivory or bone upholstered pieces mixing velvets, boucles and leathers. Ivory wool drapery falls elegantly and would keep the room from being too shadowy. We would inject blue’s complementary colour orange (and a hint of pink) in the rug and artwork. Darkened brass accents will gleam against the dark walls, white accessories harmonize the colour story and a lucite mirror with pearl-like accents helps bounce light around this stylish and elegant room.
