Farrow and Ball Giveaway

Yes, it's here! The wait is over.

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Farrow and Ball here at Modern Country Style. I've been effusing on Facebook about today's giveaway and FINALLY I can reveal all.

Here it is: the most awesome Farrow and Ball Giveaway I've ever seen.
Yes: E.V.E.R. S.E.E.N..

Up for grabs are thirty sample pots of Farrow and Ball paints to be divided between ten winners.
{So that's, um, three each. Yes, I am a maths genius.}

Plus one of those ten lucky winners will also receive 
5 litres of Farrow and Ball paint.
(The winner will be able to choose their colour 
after testing out their sample pots if they prefer.)

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is the following:

1) Head on over to Farrow and Ball then pop back here and let me know in the comments your choice of colours for the three sample pots.

2) Subscribe in some way to Modern Country Style.
(Google FriendConnect, email, RSS....all up there at the top of my sidebar)

3) For further entries, leave a link in the comments to where you have blogged about this giveaway or mentioned in on any social media site.

If you need further inspiration, then check out some of my Farrow and Ball Case Studies, which showcase some of their delicious colours in lots of different lighting conditions.

Farrow and Ball Blue Grey

Open to all subscribers in the UK or the US.
I'll announce the winners in two weeks time.

Good luck!!

OOo that's a great giveaway! Four weeks today we get the keys for our new house and I have being dreaming of colour charts! I would like to try 'Slipper Satin' (kids bedrooms), 'London Stone' (future ensuite) and just because I don't think I'd ever be brave enough 'Down Pipe'!!
Away to post about your blog and giveaway!

Jessica said...

I would pick Dayroom Yellow, Hound Lemon, and either Farrow's Cream or Tallow. Trying to pick a library color here.

Carol said...

I have been reluctant to paint a large bedroom/sitting room with String because I'm afraid it will be too yellow.
So my selections would be:
String (master bedroom)
Porphyry Pink (main bathroom woodwork)
Teresa's Green (second bedroom)

Unknown said...

Awesome giveaway, got some love for Canada?

This is amazing... I wrote about you on Facebook.... Im looking for colours for my Kitchen and was thinking Hardwick White 5, Vert De Terre 234 or my new love Mizzle 266. I love your blog about downpipe and love the colour but not enough light :( What a great giveaway!

Sara said...

Love it - Great Give away Sarah.

I would choose Calluna 207 Skylight 205 and Borrowed Light 235 - All contenders for my new Hallway. I saw an amazing article in Country Living that showed a room in Borrowed light and it was gorgeous with lots of natural light. Which we will have once the big skylight goes in.

I've linked up to your give away on my new blog.

Arsenic, down pipe (obv) and setting plaster would be my choice.

Can I just say that I have really enjoyed your SGTG series. Totally inspiring and also had sorted out what I should do with my hallway. I'm not loving it hos it is but all the furniture is dark so I didn't think I could have a beachy look (which I love) but you have shown me I can! Yay.

I have the perfect business opportunity for you Miss Sarah! You should move to Australia and become the Farrow and Ball distributor/agent over here. I'm positive you would become a zillionaire before the age of 40!
Would love to get my hands on some of that F&B blue/grey to spruce up my wooden rocking chair. Maybe your contacts over there could tell me how I go about getting it here in OZ? Have a great weekend lovely Sarah (oh, and give some thought to that business proposition!!) ;)Sharyne

1. Oxford Stone
2. Blue Gray
3. Savage Ground

Take care,

Zoe (

PS. What on earth does one do with all their leftover f&b sample pots?!

Lorraine Stanhope said...

What a fab giveaway - Farrow & Ball paints are just lovely! It's so hard to pick 3 colours.... decisions decisions!!

I think I would have to go with French Gray - I have some old chairs that are in need of a renovation project and this would be perfect for the job!

Secondly, Pink Ground. My youngest is 18 months & her nursery is all neutral. I keep thinking I must get round to decorating her room & this colour is just gorgeous!

And lastly... Mizzle. I'm not sure what I would use it for yet but I LOVE the colour. Green is my favourite and I'm hoping it would inspire me to start a new project somewhere!

Lorraine Stanhope said...
