Blazer by Farrow & Ball

This fire-engine red will add heat to any room.

Farrow & Ball's Blazer is warmer than any red we've seen in previous years, thanks to its orange undertone. Bright reds have always been popular in dining rooms, as the colour is said to increase one's appetite, but we like to see the colour used as an accent on a chair, a front door or a large, ornate frame.
