Farrow & Ball | Natural History Museum Collection

Farrow and Ball - New Paint Collection in collaboration with the Natural History MuseumCOLOUR BY NATURE in collaboration with Natural History Museum.

Over two centuries since its publication in 1814, Verner's Nomenclature of Colours is still a treasured tool for scientists and artists alike. In a pre-photographic age, it gave the world an official classification of colour in nature, allowing intrepid explorers to fully describe the ever-expanding world around them. Among these was Charles Darwin, for whom the book proved indispensable on the 1831-36 voyage of HMS Beagle.

Today, these hues form the inspiration behind our palette with the Natural History Museum, a collection that allows you to bring the true colours of nature into your home.
