Ash Grey


Ash Grey is from our new Colour by Nature palette, created in collaboration with the Natural History Museum to bring the true colours of nature into your home.

A relaxed green-grey

Ash Grey has a relaxed feel that makes it suited to any space, particularly when combined with the slightly warmer Skimmed Milk White on woodwork. For a more modern look, try teaming with a lighter Snow White trim. The underlying green in this shade means that it will appear more intensely coloured in natural daylight and greyer in areas of low light.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Mid Tones

Complementary white: Snow White

Ash Grey is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 42.

Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odour, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. They are also certified child- and baby-safe in accordance with Safety of Toys Part 3: Migration of certain elements (EN 71-3:2019+A1:2021).

Exclusions: Casein Distemper, Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat, Wood Knot & Resin Blocking Primer & Undercoat, and Metal Primer & Undercoat.


Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.


All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from its grey..then it’s green..and back to grey again! we decided on ash grey to accompany a scotch blue feature wall.we all love this colour as it changes from green during the day to a grey at night and both look equally great.This colour also goes well with an all white ceiling. Great coverage and no spills or runs from the brush.Quality paint and the only brand I want to use from now on

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous green/grey colour Used on a cupboard to go with Duck green walls and Snow White ceiling and it’s a lovely compliment to the green as recommended by Farrow and Ball

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The front door. The front door faces West so we have a problem with the sun. We've tried other manufacturers but their paints lose their gloss. The F&B Ash grey has kept its gloss and looks as good as ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Colour for a Hallway I chose Ash Grey for my hallway in modern emulsion, for ease of cleaning after little hands have done there best to smudge the wall. It certainly uplifts the hallway from the developer’s default brilliant white. It provides a warm entrance to the home and complements well with the F&B ‘Mizzle’ colour that we have used in the kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour Wanted something that was a true green, but not too dark. This fulfilled the ‘vision’ A classic colour to go with our mahogany furniture but also fresh and modern.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour This is the best paint I have ever used. Very easy application and coverage. Little more expensive but you certainly get what you pay for. Highly recommend.
