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 71.

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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

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.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good result eventually. As recommended, we used Modern emulsion on our stairs and landing. Unfortunately, after the first coat it was obvious that the finish was more shiny than the sample on the test card. Had to buy more of the paint for another two coats of the Estate emulsion.

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

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really poor coverage Very watery paint. Has taken 6 coats so far and still not right. Won't be buying again - better off with cheaper paint

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant result We bought this in exterior masonry paint for accent areas on windowsills to contrast with warm cream walls, and the result has been superb. The finish is superb and the colour is beautifully subtle and understated and has given us just the result we had been hoping for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great final finish I went for modern eggshell for internal doors. Great to work with. Final result was the perfect grey I was looking for not too dark to enclose the hallway & not too light. Nice sheen for bouncing the light around. Now using what’s left on the stairs & furniture.
