Interiors: Elephant's Breath


It’s amazing what a couple coats of new paint on the wall can do to a small room...  


Needed a change in our office, especially since I spend so much of my day there drawing (over ten projects on the board since the start of January!). A gray wash on the walls, getting rid of some furniture and re-arranging cleared everything up to make it new again. I think small rooms really benefit from darker shades on the walls, they instantly feel cozier.

We used Farrow and Ball’s “Elephant’s Breath” - I’ve always wanted to try their beautiful paint and the size of the office was a great excuse to splurge on one can to get the job done. I can see why this paint has such a reputation. The depth and effect of the paint is so stunning –  the color changes in different light and can go from warm lilac gray tones to the palest cool gray throughout the day as the sun comes in.
