Back in February, we teamed with Farrow & Ball to share the Nine New Colors they added to their 132-color collection. Throughout April and May, Remodelista and Gardenista editors are applying the colors in our own homes. So far, Danny brightened his office with Vardo, Alexa painted old furniture using Worsted and Salon Drab, and Justine used Inchyra Blue on the butler’s pantry in her historic home.
Today, Remodelista editor in chief Julie Carlson uses Yeabridge Green to freshen up the facade of her small guest cottage in Wellfleet, MA, on Cape Cod. “The structure was originally a potting shed; my mother converted it into a guesthouse/studio decades ago,” she says. “The mustard yellow door hadn’t been repainted in years, so we decided to try out a new color.”

Julie’s newly green door works nicely with the potted flora.
