Farrow & Ball have recently worked with Kelly Wearstler to create a collection of eight new sun-soaked paint colours – The California Collection. Allow yourself to be whisked away to the misty shores, palm-lined streets, and desert highways of California with these effortlessly versatile shades, each one crafted with an eco-friendly water base.
Kelly Wearstler is the founder and principal of Kelly Wearstler Studio founded in 1995 in LA. An American designer creating multi-faceted, experiential residential, hospitality, commercial and retail environments as well as an expansive collection of lifestyle product designs.

Below we look at the 8 new shades, from the fresh aquatic tones of Hazy and Palm to the zingy brightness of Citrona. These colours will certainly freshen up your kitchen design this Spring.
Tar from the California Collection is a soft off-black that captures the shade of sun-baked desert highways. This deep yet restrained neutral is soft enough to envelop a whole room.
Sand from the California Collection is a sandy neutral with a warm white of depth and complexity. This versatile shade conjures images of Malibu, with its soft-sanded beaches and coastal homes filled with natural wood and textured linens.
Citrona from the California Collection is a softened citrus shade inspired by the lemon trees that thrive in California’s temperature climate. This softened citrus shade is an earthy, contemporary take on a true chartreuse.
Palm from the California Collection is a pale, fresh green that is a love letter to the iconic palms that dot the LA skyline. It has a desaturated quality as if always being seen in the clear, bright light characteristic of California.
Salt from the California Collection is a bright, crisp white, reminiscent of the salty air ushered in by the Pacific Ocean and the delicate crystalline layer it leaves behind.
Hazy from the California Collection is a muted blue-grey inspired by the marine layer that brings drifts of dreamy fog inland, capturing the fresh feeling of early mornings on the coast.
Stoke from the California Collection is a strong, true grey that brings strength, structure, and clarity to any palette – just as it does to the landscape on city streets and cloudy coastal days.
Faded Terracotta from the California Collection is a soft, pale orange that is known on pots and tiles baked to a pale hue by the California sun. An easy-going shade characterized by softness and warmth.
