Over two centuries since its publication in 1814, Werner's Nomenclature of Colours is still a treasured tool for scientists and artists alike.  In a pre-photographic age, it gave the world an official classification of colour in nature, allowing intrepid explorers to fully describe the ever-expanding world around them.  Among these was Charles Darwin, for whom the book proved indispensable on the 1831-36 voyage of HMS Beagle.  

Today, these hues form the inspiration behind Farrow & Ball's palette with the Natural History Museum in London, England, a collection that allows you to bring the true colours of nature into your space.
