Styling Notes: Inchrya Blue 

Farrow & Ball's blue-grey hue that is both moody and charming. Here's how we're styling it.

30th June 2021

As far as Farrow & Ball paint colours go, Inchrya Blue is one of the most versatile. Depending on the light in the room you plan to paint it in, it can read more grey or blue, but ultimately it’s a gorgeous moody hue that is charming and elegant.

We find it works exceptionally well in living spaces, lending a helping hand in creating a homely and cocooning feel that is embraced all year round in England, which is also how we’ve styled it. Cosy, heartily welcoming and the perfect dramatic backdrop to some more colourful and warmer hues.

Darker blue's have always gone magnificently well with light woods as the material helps to lift the room gently. The Holborn Glazed Dresser from Neptune is that statement piece of furniture you’ll adore for a lifetime and sits beautifully in front of an Inchrya Blue wall, as does the Isle Sofa. Charming, delightfully comforting with a low and deep arm slope, it’s the perfect base for a selection of your favourite scatter cushions. Need some inspiration? Every sofa needs a plain velvet cushion, and the Sea Blue cushion from Oka is luxurious comfort at its best. For a touch of contrast, add the Pattani Eclipse Cushion Cover in Mustard to the mix for detail and stunning colour.

It’s essential when using such a deep shade to consider your lightning which is a great excuse to invest in a new lampshade or two. The Lora Ceramic Shade from Pooky is beautiful. The gaps in the weave mean that the light sneaks out for a divinely comforting glow. Are you thinking of something more statement? Then the Smaller Leonardo Chandelier is undoubtedly the one. The detail is mesmerising, and as Pooky says themselves, “the effect is staggering.”

Feeling bold? Our shutters are entirely bespoke, including the colour. Using our colour matching service, we can match your shutters to Inchrya Blue for either a charmingly cohesive look where your shutters blend perfectly into your wall or for something a little more statement. Paint Farrow & Ball’s Lime White on your walls for such a stunning contrast with the darker shutters.

We also know it's all in the details. Bring in the perfect finishing touch by hanging the Bessie Original Oil Painting- the perfect solution if your home lacks personality. As for scents, there will never be a room that doesn't demand a candle burning in the corner. The Moon Scented Candle from Evermore is floral and warming with alluring notes of Cedar and Cade. We'd recommend picking up two, one for you, one for a friend. It's too irresistible not to.
