Charlotte Cosby has 8 years experience working in the interiors industry and is currently Head of Creative at Farrow & Ball where she experiments with colour on a daily basis. Inspired by the unusual, her love of design and extreme curiosity for both form and substance take her all over the world.
Once working in a school, Faye now spends her days immersed in the the world of colour. A fan of the Art Deco era, she currently spends much her spare time renovating her recently bought, old Victorian House – knocking walls down, designing rooms or decorating!
The room she spends a considerable amount of time in is the kitchen; preparing food, cooking, eating and socialising!

The Chromologist is a colour whisperer. He understands and knows them better than they know themselves, translating their pleas to be used beautifully for humankind. It’s unknown from whence he came.
