A warm mid grey

This warm and contemporary grey is renowned for its characterful paint name, originally created by John Fowler, the notable English interior designer. Elephant's Breath reads as an uplifting mid grey with its hint of magenta, but can become almost lilac in the cooler light of west facing rooms. Try offsetting with Charleston Gray and London Clay for an invitingly earthy scheme with more intense accents, or pair with other Contemporary Neutrals such as the softer Strong White for a sense of neutrality and calm.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Strong White

Finishes:

  • Estate Emulsion: The original, chalky, very matte finish for interior walls and ceilings, carefully crafted to give a flatter finish with a 2% sheen.

  • Modern Emulsion: This low sheen, high-performance wall and ceiling paint is ideal for use in kitchens, bathrooms, children's rooms, hallways, and other high-usage areas. This is a water-based finish.

  • Estate Eggshell: As robust as it is beautiful, this low 20% sheen is highly resistant to a variety of stains including wine, coffee, and crayon. This is a subtle finish for interior wood and metal.

  • Modern Eggshell: The toughest product in the range, Modern Eggshell transforms kitchen cabinetry, floors, and interior wood or metal surfaces with a subtle 40% sheen.

  • Full Gloss: This traditional high-gloss finish is suitable for both interior and exterior wood and metalwork. No longer restricted to front doors and woodwork, it can also be used for dramatic effect on ceilings and walls. This is a water-based finish.
