A Star Chalet Transformed With Colour

A Star Chalet Transformed With Colour

This Herefordshire holiday rental will be instantly recognisable to anyone who’s watched hit Netflix series Sex Education.

As the home of Dr Jean Milburn and her son Otis, The Chalet has set the scene for countless dramas and mishaps, but for real-life owner Cathy Chivers, it’s become a cosy and colourful sanctuary that reflects her personality – largely thanks to Farrow & Ball’s bespoke colour consultancy service.

Farrow & Ball colour consultancy is available to both designers and specifiers. Designed to take the stress out of choosing colours and finishes, it allows the brand’s expert Colour Consultants to share advice that’s precisely tailored to the needs of the property and client.

In Cathy’s case, the brief was to overhaul The Chalet’s all-neutral rooms with colour schemes that brought out the best in its distinctive tongue-and-groove walls and traditional shape, as well as suiting the different levels of light that each room receives.

Cathy’s new looks were brought to life with a selection of high-performance interior and exterior Farrow & Ball paint finishes, including tough Modern Eggshell on kitchen cabinets, low-sheen Estate Eggshell on walls and ceilings, and hardwearing Exterior Eggshell in the conservatory.
