A warm grey with lilac undertones
Dove Tale is a darker version of Elephant's Breath and is perfect for those who are hoping for a warm grey finish. Typical of the colours used by the bohemian Bright Young Things between the wars, it is the perfect choice for the bedroom as its gentle lilac undertone creates a soft and inviting feel. Pair with Skimming Stone for the most flattering and subtle scheme.
Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE
Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.
Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.
All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.
