Alcove Shelves

Contributed by PippaToop

To play with the eye and add width to this living room Pale Powder was used on the shelves so they appear to flow out of the adjacent wall in the same colour. Depth is added by using Oval Room Blue in the alcoves and on the fireplace wall.

We’re moving!

This site will be closing in April 2020 as we build a bigger, better, more beautiful source of ideas for your upcoming decorating projects. As soon as we’re up and running at, you’ll be able to browse a huge range of inspiring images of real Farrow & Ball homes.

While we move our existing images to their new home, you’ll no longer be able to register a new account or upload images here, but we’d still love to see them! Please share your looks with us on Instagram by tagging them #FarrowandBall.
