When a designer known for having a specific panache with color and pattern collaborates with a design house known for creating mass-loved paint colors and wallpapers, you know the results are going to be exceptional. Such is the case with Carte Blanche, a new collection by designer Christopher John Rogers in collaboration with Farrow & Ball. The collaboration consists of four foundational neutrals, eight vibrant shades, and three statement-making wallpaper prints, each of them beautiful in their own way.
Even if you’ve seen hundreds of paint swatches before, we have a hunch these new hues will excite your eyes. Rogers, who is inspired by a wide range of creative sources, from artist Ellsworth Kelly to airport decor, turned to his childhood memories of food and family to create the 12 shades.
Every designer, creative, and design enthusiast knows that finding just the right color for a space can be painstakingly hard. With Carte Blanche, the search is now much easier. Below, the shades are described by the designer and design house themselves:
For the graphic wallpapers, he was inspired by shapes from his own work, Bauhaus textiles, and one of Farrow & Ball’s timeless stripe designs. Each of the three wallpaper designs come in four different colorways using the colors from the Carte Blanche palette, creating a seamless collection that will translate effortlessly on blank walls.
