Farrow and Ball Borrowed Light 235

Official color page:Borrowed Light 235
Color code:235
Color name:Borrowed Light
Brand:Farrow and Ball

Evoking the colour of summer skies, Borrowed Light is a wonderfully pale blue named after the delicate light that cascades through small windows and fanlights. It works as well in a room deprived of light as it does in an airy sunroom. It’s a soft blue, sometimes bordering on pale grey and off white, but is very calming and subtle. This soft and classic tone is perfectly suited to children’s bedrooms or any other room.
