Falu is the rusty, coppery red one associates with barns and cottages in rural Sweden. The official name of the colour is Falu Rödfärg; as a paint, it is manufactured in the copper-mining town of Falun, from which it takes its name. It was originally created to paint Swedish castles and manor houses in an effort to replicate the red brick of state houses found elsewhere in Europe. We think it’s magnificent, and easily tops red brick for impact.
And just maybe, it’s really the colour of Santa’s outfit! In any case, it’s a high-falu-ting colour for December!
