Set to become the bible of home decoration, Farrow & Ball How to Decorate provides a highly practical and inspirational guide to the successful use of paint and paper in any home, large or small, urban or country.
Published on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the iconic brand, the book brings together the expertise of Joa Studholme and the Farrow & Ball creative team to demystify the nitty-gritty of transforming a home – from deciding which colours work best in a north-facing room to creating accents with paint and making the most of a feature wall.

Farrow & Ball
Paint pioneers John Farrow and Richard Ball founded their company in 1946. They met while working at a local clay pit and later went on to build their first factory in Dorset, southern England, where the company is still based. Farrow & Ball is now one of the world’s leading home decorating brands, manufacturing decorative paint and wallpaper that transform homes around the globe.
Farrow & Ball paint is distinguished for its depth of colour and unique finish developed through the use of high levels of pigment, rich resin binders, and ingredients with a high refractory nature. In addition, its complementary wallpaper products are handcrafted using Farrow & Ball paint with traditional block and trough printing methods, creating a distinctive tactile texture.
Farrow & Ball distributes its paints and papers to 70 countries worldwide, and there are more than 50 Farrow & Ball showrooms in the UK, Europe and North America, as well as over 1,500 independent retailers who support the brand.
