Mole's Breath


England’s Farrow & Ball started manufacturing paint in 1946 and are known for producing handsome, nuanced colours. They also have a knack for coming up with unique names for their paints. Among my favourites are: Skimming Stone, Down Pipe and Borrowed Light. That brings us to “Mole’s Breath.” It’s hard to fathom how such a name made the final cut. There’s nothing particularly appealing about a mole, with its ugly nose and paddle-like claws – let alone imagining the colour of its breath. Does the F&B creative team know something about a mole’s dirty underground environment that we are missing?
