Romo’s new wide width linens are really versatile with gorgeous heavy plains and printed designs. They create a great sense of texture and understated luxury. There are 320cms wide semi sheers and a relaxed pure linen with a wonderful heavy weight and textured quality which is 300cms wide.

New Farrow and Ball colours out today

Introducing the 9 new Farrow & Ball colours for 2016

From soft neutrals and muted pastels, to strong brights and rich dark tones, the nine new colours are an excellent addition to the Farrow and Ball range. Use them to design the perfect colour scheme for your home – call in for friendly expert advice here at Room in Hay.

Shadow White

New Farrow and Ball

“Shadow White is the lighter version of Shaded White so the two are linked and work perfectly together. Both names are taken from the soft tone created when whites are covered in a deep shade.

With none of the perceived yellow of Slipper Satin or the grey of Ammonite, Shadow White will work perfectly in any style of home. This versatile colour is perfect when paired with both Shaded White and Drop Cloth, and creates beautifully understated rooms when used on ceilings or woodwork.”

Drop Cloth

New Farrow and Ball


“We’ve named this colour Drop Cloth in honour of all the painters and decorators who have worked with Farrow & Ball paints for so long, as it’s the traditional name for a dust sheet. The colour has a subtle touch of mystery about it.

Drop Cloth is a darker version of both Shaded White and Shadow White, acting as the strongest hue in the group to complete this trio of colours that work in any style of home to give a classic look. It reads neither too yellow nor too grey making it the perfect colour for those who are wary of the fashion for grey and avoid tones that are too cream.

For east facing rooms the colour will appear stronger in the morning, becoming a more muted tone as the day goes on.”


New Farrow and Ball 2016

“Taking its name from city suiting often made from flat woven fabric, and the sleepy Norfolk village where the yarn was originally created.

Worsted works very well as the stronger tone when paired with Wevet, Strong White or Cornforth White. A little darker than Purbeck Stone but not as strong as Mole’s Breath this hue works fabulously as a wall colour in its own right, or as the perfect background to be punctuated with clean accents.

In north facing rooms this hue will appear as a stronger and grittier grey.”



“The Shipping Forecast is very much part of the fabric of British life – warning all sailors about impending gales and wind. Cromarty’s name is taken from the Cromarty Firth estuary and conjures up visions of swirling mists.

Cromarty, the lightest colour in the Mizzle, Blue Gray and Pigeon family is pretty and its ease of use means that it can create the softest of rooms which are neither too blue nor too grey. It is the perfect tone for those who like to keep things soft and muted.

In west facing rooms the colour can change dramatically from neutral through to a fresher, warmer blue.”



“Peignoir will create the most humble, blushing interior as it is the softest of pinks containing a great big dose of grey. Its romantic feel makes it an obvious bedroom choice for a traditional home but it will add a certain charm to any modern living area. It works perfectly in combination with any of the Contemporary Neutrals as well as with the stronger Brassica and Brinjal.

Feels contemporary and crisp when combined with All White in south facing rooms.”

Yeabridge Green


“This colour was found at Yeabridge House, an 18th century Georgian Hamstone farmhouse, when the original gun cupboard was removed. This vibrant verdant green had laid untouched for many years but was amazingly still reminiscent of the lush Somerset grass that surrounds the house.

Yeabridge Green is the cleanest, freshest and most uncomplicated of our greens creating uplifting interiors especially when used in combination with Stiffkey Blue. With less yellow than Churlish Green, but more than Breakfast Room Green, Yeabridge Green is a true avocado green.

If you’re decorating in a room with northern lighting this tone will give an earthier feeling green.”



“This colour seems so full of life and joy it seemed natural to name it after something which is known to have a flamboyant colour. A Vardo is a traditional horse drawn gypsy or Romany wagon. A similar colour was used in the intricate patterning of these showmen’s vehicles (usually over red) which is seen as an important cultural high point in decoration during the mid-19th century.

Vardo is an incredibly vibrant yet versatile colour that works so well with whites. It looks fantastically elegant when combined with the lighter Pavilion Gray and especially atmospheric with the darker Down Pipe.

Use in west facing rooms where the colour builds up throughout the day for a perfect glow in the evening”

Inchyra Blue


“This is inspired by a bespoke colour made for Lord & Lady Inchyra at beautiful classic Georgian Inchyra House in Scotland. Inchyra Blue is used on the exterior doors of their very impressive byre (or barn) which was restored in 2013. It nestles at the bottom of a rather grey and imposing brae (or hill) so needed to have a depth to it but also be sympathetic to its dramatic backdrop and work with the moody Scottish skies.

Inchyra Blue, like many of our colours, is difficult to put in a box. To some it reads grey and to others green, but what is for certain is that it is the perfect alternative to charcoal for use on walls in contemporary homes. However, it is just at home on the exterior of traditional properties. Its uncertain colour creates an unmatched moodiness especially when combined with Black Blue or Vardo. For the less adventurous it also works perfectly with all the Architectural Neutrals.

In west facing rooms Inchyra Blue will look stronger and less coloured in the morning but become more blue as the day progresses.”

Salon Drab


“This name goes right back to our roots, as does the colour. Room names have always proven to be popular choice for us and the use of the word Salon not only refers to the small outer room of a drawing room but also conjures up a cultural, intellectual conversational hub. A two-part name, combining Salon, the small outer room off a drawing room, with Drab, a term favoured by true colourists, which simply describes a colour as lacking in brightness.

A classic 19th century warm drab, this colour has been much requested and works perfectly with both the Yellow and Red Based Neutrals as well as with Skimming Stone. It is stronger and cleaner than Mouse’s Back and far less red than Mahogany. Its richness is extremely appealing and will create rooms that have mid-19th century authenticity despite being perceived as the perfect ‘chocolate’ for the modern home.

Perfect for darker north facing rooms to make them feel cocooning and cosy.”
