Inside The Rug Company's New Farrow & Ball Collection

Farrow & Ball and The Rug Company—two British brands that understand the power of craftsmanship and color—have teamed up on a new collection of handloom rugs available in 12 beautiful colorways. The rug line, The Complementary Colour Collection, features an accent and a natural tone for six of Farrow & Ball's neutral categories: traditional, yellow based, red based, contemporary, easy, and architectural. Along with the range of color choices, three textures are available: plain wool, cut and loop stripe, and wool with a silk border. Milly Wright, creative director for The Rug Company, says of the collaboration: "A celebration of pared back simplicity, this collection makes it very easy to choose a beautiful handmade rug for any interior scheme."

For this pink hue, Wright says it was all about pinpointing the right pink tone."It was important that it wasn’t too sugary or peachy," she says. "I wanted it to be a pink that would work well in any room—not just a girl’s playroom. We offset it with a warm Weimaraner grey to bring out the red and not the purple in the tone."

"I love getting lost in a deep indigo blue and I have been in constant search for the perfect cool light grey for my home. When I found it, I loved it so much I named it after my daughter."
