At the end of the month, venerable British paint and wallpaper house Farrow & Ball unveils four new hand-printed papers: Jasmine, Samphire, Parque and Chromatic Stripe, all custom-made in Dorset, England, at the factory famed for producing heavily pigmented hues with names such as Mole’s Breath, Cooking Apple Green, Purbeck Stone and Dead Salmon. The new collection, in five colorways, uses metallic copper paint for the first time. Created using traditional block and trough printing methods with eco-friendly FSC-approved paper and minimal-VOC water-based paint, all designs have a specially formulated glaze to ensure strength and stain resistance. $170 to $260 per roll, at Boxwood Interiors, 1839 W.
