After an enormously stressful start to rejuvenating our bathroom, Farrow & Ball yet again saved the day. Mole's Breath pulled all the different textures and tones in our tiny bathroom together. Candle lit bath with a glass of Buck's Fizz made the expletives and tears a distant memory. Thank you

Good, but colour not what I expected
First time using F&B paint, must say using dark tone undercoat I was really impressed, but when I started to put on Moles Breath I was at first disappointed, it didn't glide on like undercoat and the colour was a lot lighter than the colour chart. After 3 coats it got darker but it still wouldn't be like chart. I find the brush marks a little annoying also.

Mole's Breath Estate Emulsion - Dynamic.
First time decorating. Master Victorian bedroom.
Went with F&B and results turned out better than expected. This is an incredible, dynamic colour. All the hard work paid off and I've had professional decorators review my work and given it the thumbs up. Ensure you use the dark tones primer. It's a must imho.
The other thing I should add are that these paints are joy to work with. Works well with Cornforth White.

great colour but not exactly what I was looking for
purchased a sample and although I very much liked the colour, eventually went with stiffkey blue

Not the gloss
A long term fan of F and B paints. The estate emulsion is great.. fantastic coverage.. easy to use and great colours.
The water based gloss is however absolutely awful to use. Coverage is terrible and its just not glossy...just a bit shiny. Very disappointed. Their previous oil based gloss was fantastic but this new stuff is substandard...even on the correct undercoat two coats were needed and I am still not happy with the finish.
It wasn't broke you shouldn't have fixed it.

I used this colour on a French style bed and it looks fabulous.
As an amateur painter, I never use anything other that F&B as it is so easy to apply - and the results are always great.

This is a gorgeous deep rich shade, really lovely. In the end we decided it was too brown for the effect we were after as we wanted a purer grey, but we will definitely use this colour elsewhere as it is very striking. Manor House Grey was the colour we chose in the end as it had less of the brown undertone.

Beautiful warm and practical grey
I used this to paint my wooden floor in a north facing bedroom, alongside ammonite and Wimborne white walls. Although the final shade was lighter than that on the colourchart, I was very pleased with the results - a lovely warm grey that doesn't limit the light in the room, yet is practical enough in terms of keeping clean. Complements the other colours very well and easy to use. My floor required 3 layers of topcoat, however well worth it in terms of the final result.
