Mole’s Breath is a colour

Interior alchemists Farrow & Ball have landed a lovely new range of paint colours, inspired by the Dorset Coast. The names are pure poetry and the results are fabulous…
Dangerous stuff: they will have you reconsider your colour scheme at home… There goes the weekend!! 😉
Stiffkey Blue – Reminiscent of the extraordinary colour of the mud found at Stiffkey beach, Norfolk.


Wevet No 273 – Named after the old Dorset term for a spider’s web. A delicate fresh white.

Mole’s Breath – The name Mole’s Breath speaks for itself – linking in with the fantastically popular Elephant’s Breath but reflecting the beautiful colour of a mole’s coat.

Yellowcake – A classic bright yellow named to reflect the revival of the ‘homemade’


Dimpse No 277 – A cool grey, the colour of twilight according to West Country dialect.

Purbeck Stone No 275 – A stronger neutral which resembles the stone found in the Isle of Purbeck.

St Giles Blue No 280 – A clean strong blue originally found in the hall of 17th century St Giles House at Wimborne St Giles.


Nancy’s Blushes No 278 – Named after a mystery Nancy, this true pink holds real charm and is best combined with dark colours.
