Brassica No.271

Create a soft and relax atmosphere with this moody tone

“CHARMING AND SOPHISTICATED – Brassica feels feminine and charming in light areas but due to its underlying black tone it becomes much more sophisticated and grey in dark areas. A great favourite to warm cold feeling rooms without being overtly red, it is often combined with Elephant’s Breath and Skimming Stone for a rich contemporary feel. Dark Tones Undercoat.” – Farrow & Ball

How can I use this paint?

  • Give the space a sense of height, buy pairing Farrow & Ball’s Brassica No.271 with a lighter tone for the ceiling, such as Stone Blue No.86. By adding this lighter tone to the ceiling helps to trick the eye, thinking the room is taller than it actually is. Plus the green hues of the Stone Blue, helps the pull out the gorgeous purple hints of the Brassica. To keep the balance throughout then setting, add the Stone Blue tone to accessories and furniture also.

  • If a grey scheme is much more your thing, give a living room true impact with this colour. Add Brassica to each wall, then to finish off the look by adding a darker grey paint on the door frames, skirting boards and windowsills. To stop the room appearing too dark, introduce a pop of colour throughout with textured fabrics and accessories.

  • For a more sophisticated feel, chose this paint for the walls of a bedroom. Finish off the look with soft pinks, floral linens and vintage distressed furniture.
