Moving into the world of art, what is on your walls at home? I absolutely love collecting art. My favourite pieces are by Charlotte Taylor and Michael Angove. I even have a huge banana leaf which is a 1950s original piece of wallpaper that was taken from a hotel in Miami, from a company called Secondhand Rose. I love this one because it’s got such a quirky story behind it – much like our own colour names! Your profession requires a lot of creativity and an eye for design, do you draw or paint outside of work? Yes I do! For as long as I can remember I’ve had a fascination with colour and design – I especially love coloured graph paper and can often be found drawing pieces of furniture. When I’m not doing that, I love to paint abstract.
Farrow & Ball encourages its clients to share photos of their newly-decorated homes on social media using the hashtag #MyFaBHome much like we do with our clients via #YourWorldOurArt. What does it mean to you to see paints and wallpapers that you’ve designed in the homes of your customers? Nothing quite compares to seeing people enjoying something you’ve created – it’s an amazing feeling. Our customers are a hugely creative bunch and we love seeing how they’ve used a colour or a print in their homes, sometimes in a way we never could have come up with ourselves. The feedback we get on social media from people who’ve either used our paint and paper in their homes and love the effect, or have gone in search of inspiration and find themselves bursting with ideas thanks to our inspirational images, is always fantastic too.
