To many a design lover, luxe British paint brand Farrow & Ball is the ultimate in chic varnishes. The only problem? The paints could be difficult to pin down locally—the brand’s collection was only available to professional designers via the Washington Design Center. Not so anymore: As of Saturday, Farrow & Ball brings its covetable lush hues to its first standalone showroom in the area with the opening of a store in Friendship Heights. The new showroom offers color consultations alongside the full range of its interior and exterior paints—all eco-friendly—and its wallpaper line, including a new collection of four Japanese-inspired paper designs.

We checked in with the brand to get the word on the five best-selling hues at the former Design Center-based showroom. Apparently, Washingtonians like neutrals.

Farrow & Ball. 5221 Wisconsin Ave., NW; 202-479-6780.
