This edgy green has an interesting background.
One of style editor Michael Penney's favourite paint shades is Farrow & Ball's Arsenic. "The name comes from the toxic chemical originally used to produce this historic colour," he says. "It's a great accent colour, and I just used it to paint out a old console table in a fresh white hallway. It's so fun, but still grounded in history."
