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.

  • Low sheen, matt finish (7% sheen)
  • Scuff, stain and mould resistant
  • Washable, wipeable and child safe
  • An eco-friendly, water-based formulation with minimal VOC content
  • Low odour
  • Quick drying
  • 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 must say I was weary of paying so much for a tin of paint (especially as my dad works for Johnston’s paint, and yes he doesn’t let me forget it) however this product really does deliver. I also used the mid tones primer before which goes on a green colour. Two coats of the top coat and it covers amazing. Such lovely hints of grey, beige, lilac. Used the modern emulsion as it’s gone on the stairs and so far very impressed.

Great Paint & Great Colour!
