Features and Benefits

One of Farrow & Balls most popular colours, Elephant's Breath with its hint of magenta will appear as a warm contemporary grey but can become almost lilac in west facing rooms. To make it less lilac it is best not used with All White, but with the softer Strong White. For fashionable interiors, offset it with Charleston Gray and London Clay as slightly more intense accents. Mid Tones Undercoat.

  • The paint finish that creates the signature look of Farrow & Ball. Suitable for use throughout the home on ceilings and walls, it has a chalky matt finish and unrivalled depth of colour. Its traditional formulation and ingredients haven't changed in decades and it has more pigment in every tin than other emulsions
  • Signature, chalky matt finish
  • Eco friendly, water-based formulation with low VOC content
  • Wipeable
  • Water based & low odour
  • Quick drying
  • At B&Q we want you to be satisfied with your colour selection. Not all monitors will display colours the same and paint tins may not show the same colour as your walls do in natural light. We therefore recommend you order a tester pot online or pop in store to pick one up so you are sure that this is the right colour for you.

I checked the colour out and all the Farrow and Ball reviews and for Elephants breath they were all top reviews
The fact the colour was the best match to our new fitted furniture was the deciding factor but the depth of colour and finish was everything I'd wanted You can tell the difference I did when I got samples o other similar colours from diff paint companies
I do know you can't copy the effect and class We tried once It doesn't work.
You can't replicate the depth and effect where you get the slight lilac/ mauve light in certain lights
I love it so much I'm tempted to paint my dinning room now in the same colour
I've already done a room in Cromarty which is as wow in a different way
Farrow and Ball is well worth the cost It's class!
