Color of the Month

Farrow & Ball Dead Salmon

You might be wondering, “Why on earth is it called Dead Salmon?” Well, the answer is rather interesting. Farrow & Ball explains that the “dead” in the name refers to the paint’s flat matte finish. So, there’s no need to picture an actual deceased salmon every time we mention the color – LOL!

Traditionally, the most common paint finishes are semi-gloss and eggshell. However, the flat finish of Dead Salmon adds a unique and distinctive touch. More and more clients are requesting a flat matte finish for their cabinetry, making this trend increasingly popular.
