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 87.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant deep colour and finish We have painted our house with Farrow and Ball (it is small cottage so hasn’t bankrupted is!). We decided to paint an old bench - what a difference Mole’s Breath made - it has transformed it. Perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautifull colour! Our contact advised us to have a look at Farrow & Ball Mole’s Breath so we did and ordered some samples. The colour is just what we are looking for so we decided to meet up with our contact and see if we could paint more rooms in the house with Farrow & Ball colours!

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.
