Mole's Breath

No.276

A moody grey

A timeless grey whose name takes its roots from the much loved Elephant's Breath, this moody hue is inspired by a smaller, furrier animal. Mole's Breath is the most versatile of our stronger accents as it can be used both with Easy Neutrals like Purbeck Stone and Contemporary Neutrals like Strong White. It is particularly effective to ground kitchen islands and when used on the walls of smaller spaces to create a fabulously sullen yet warm room. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Ammonite

Mole's Breath is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 77.

Product Information 
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.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our 132 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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exterior Eggshell I decided to use the exterior eggshell for my wooden windows and door as I’m not that keen on the shiny gloss. I was not disappointed! Using the suggested dark tones primer and undercoat which went on like a dream, I then applied 2 coats of the Moles Breath. The colour appears slightly lighter than the colour chart but I didn’t mind, it does change colour in different lights and has a definite taupe undertone in the shade and a clean crisp look in the sunshine. I’m so happy with the results and have teamed it with Railing for the Front door. You get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning colour I used moles breath for a few feature walls in my house and I’m totally delighted with the colour. It has so much warmth and depth and changes with the lighting in the room. Utterly stunning ! I want to paint it everywhere now !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This colour is amazing - sometimes grey sometimes a moody blue We have used this colour on a panelled wall and fireplace and it’s stunning - the colour is so rich and every time I look at it I pick out a new tone - this is the reason why you buy the real F&B paint - please don’t colour match it’s just not the same - if you want to see how the colour turned out for me you can find me on Instagram @onlyfoolsnhouses - best paint ever
