Brush it off: Farrow & Ball paints


The romanticism of a wild, forgotten outdoor space owes much to Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic The Secret Garden, but the reality is a little maintenance is needed if you want an overgrown but organised hideaway. A crisp colour contrast can be the key. Happily, 132 Farrow & Ball paints, including Yellowcake No.279 (pictured), are now available in three practical exterior finishes that will minimise mould’s invasion of your haven. Magic.
From £20.
