Farrow & Ball: The Purnon Papers


The Purnon Papers

Five patterns uncovered at Château de Purnon and brought to life by Farrow & Ball — these are The Purnon Papers. Inspired by those who lived, and revelled, at the French château in its heyday, the original patterns have been lovingly redesigned in five unique colourways to complement homes of all shapes and sizes. Each roll is handcrafted in signature Farrow & Ball fashion, using traditional techniques, the finest paper and our very own paint.

The inspiration behind this collection can be found nestled in the French countryside — Château de Purnon. This enchanting building has fallen into disrepair, forgotten until Felicity Selkirk and Tim Holding made the bold decision to bring it back to life — a restoration project we’re proud to support.

The pair reached out to us about renovating a neglected bedroom and bathroom, but when our Creative Director Charlotte Cosby saw the treasure trove of pattern and colour within the walls, she was inspired to do more. And the rest is history.
