Kristen Farrell Launches New Custom Paint Collection: Beautiful, Simple, & Chic Hamptons Shades!


Anyone who has designed a room knows how tricky it can be to choose that one, perfect color. Imagine you could skip the hassle of a million samples and instead choose from a palette of authentic and simple Hamptons shades.Known for her understanding and creation of comfortable, sophisticated ocean side living, Kristen Farrell of Kristen Farrell home has just launched her first ever custom paint collection in association with Sherwin Williams.

The 24 option pallet focuses on ‘Simplified living with a touch of timelessness, clarity and poise’, says Farrell, with options including ‘Hamptons White’, ‘Salt Bay’, ‘Montauk Gray’ and ‘Newport Navy’. The collection is also a first for Sherwin Williams, who in their 150+ years in business have never collaborated with an outside designer on a collection.

Now available in all 4,000 Sherwin Williams locations, the Kristen Farrell Home paint collection has also already been featured in various high-profile settings. Just this past June her paint line was the official partner for the Hamptons Cottages & Gardens Show House ‘White Party’ at a stunning new build in Water Mill. In collaboration with more than 20 other top interior and furniture designers, Farrell noted. Every designer incorporated their own selected KFH x SW paint colors, so people from across the world can now bring a little piece of the Hamptons into their home wherever they live.

“As someone whose friends mostly live in the city and who spend their weekends out East, I’ve come to learn that a lot of people simply don’t have the time to comb through 1000’s of paint samples looking for that ‘Perfect Gray’. So what I really tried to do was influence my collection with a variety of simple, authentic Hamptons shades and colors, so that people could just look at the one sheet and say, “Yes, that’s the one.”
