Farrow & Ball has collaborated with London’s Natural History Museum to create a palette of 16 new colors inspired by nature (see above). Drawn from the museum’s collection, including its rare-book library, the palette includes vibrant and jewel-like oranges and reds, natural and opulent greens and blues, and a range of soft neutrals.
