Behind The Scenes: How Farrow & Ball Paint Is Made

Senior editor Morgan Michener shares scenes from her trip to the Farrow & Ball factory in Dorset, England.
I’m a huge fan of Farrow & Ball — I’ve used the paint firsthand and love it. In my own home, I have rooms painted in Pale Powder No. 204, and Pointing No. 2003, and my daughter’s nursery was wallpapered in St Antoine BP946.

So when they invited me to take a trip to the U.K. as they launched nine new paint colors to their lineup this past September, I jumped at the chance. After visiting Farrow & Ball’s factory in Dorset, England, to see how their paint is made, I love the brand even more. Much like small batch furniture or artisanal pottery, it’s handcrafted and no detail is overlooked. Get a peek at their process below, and see inside a dreamy house in the English countryside that so beautifully displays their products.
