After clearing weeds and all but one perennial, I brought in pea gravel and acacia wood furniture snagged at a garage sale which I painted a combination of two colors mentioned above: 50% Farrow & Ball Cornforth White and 50% Farrow & Ball Hardwick White.

My French farmhouse inspired courtyard in summer with pea gravel, ferns, galvanized buckets, and boxwood - Hello Lovely Studio.

    I am starting to fall in love with the Farrow & Ball colors, especially the whites & soft grays. But since there is no stockist anywhere near here I would need to have the colors mixed into another paint brand…which I know, isn’t a perfect idea but do-able.

    Did you use Farrow & Ball paint or just mix your custom colors (from F&B) into another brand? It certainly looks lovely indeed on your furniture! 🙂

      Easy to fall in love for sure! Color matched in a Behr exterior paint for the furniture. Of course the only way to get the true quality and color is from the source. I’ll try to put together a post about the high quality of Farrow & Ball paint – I have some F&B here waiting to kiss a surface. 🙂

        I’ve thought of getting the F &B actual floor paint because I’ve heard it is so durable. But the price plus the shipping for what I’d need would not be so lovely. 😉 I suspect I’ll choose one of their colours and have it mixed in the floor paint I normally use.

          It is pricey, and I hear you about accessiblity. The Merchandise Mart in downtown Chicago has a showroom so I can get there with some effort, and I haven’t checked into shipping costs. Thanks for this great feedback!
