Jitney by Farrow and Ball

This Fall Farrow and Ball introduced 9 new colors in addition to their current collection. I was the lucky one to receive a test set to try out the new tones. Farrow and Ball is an English company specialized in paint and wallpaper since the mid 40s. Their paint is chalk based with rich pigments. Resulting in hues that respond characterfully to the nuances of light throughout the day, After painting and playing with the small cans and colors I came to the conclusion that the color called Jitney is my current favorite.

I’m familiar with Farrow and Ball for a while now, love to use their paint for both projects and at home. Pavilion Grey, an elegant Swedish mid-gray, and Down Pipe, a deep grey with blue undertones, are examples of colors that I have used regularly in photo and styling shoots. The new colors are ranging from an exotic pink, a deep red to a soft off-white and a down to earth blue. Each blended with rich pigments and fine quality ingredients for an extraordinary depth of color. 

Jitney is a sandy brown hue, an earthy color which is muted yet uplifting. And beautiful when the daylight comes in. This color strengthens the natural look and materials in this shoot. It fits the ceramics, black details and light wooden table. During the day Jitney is more sandy/greyish.  As soon as the evening comes in, it becomes more brownish and warmer in tone. At first sight, it might seem a bit dull. But it’s quite the opposite, Jitney is a warm and calming color which varies from warm to a slightly cooler tone. I like the way Farrow and Ball paint changes according to the light.
