A naturally understated grey

Ammonite is named after the treasured fossils often found on the Dorset coast. It has a fantastically understated quality, and sits effortlessly with our Easy Neutrals. Neither too warm nor too cool, its subtle grey tone creates a hushed and calming feel in homes both old and new. Try pairing with All White to accent its light grey feel.

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones 

Complementary white: Wevet

Ammonite is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 275.

Back in 2010, we moved to an entirely water based range of finishes, becoming the first in the industry to do so. These low-odor, low-VOC finishes are easy to clean without harmful solvents. They also meet child- and baby-safe requirements in accordance with The Canada Cribs, Cradles and Bassinets Regulations, Canada Toy Regulations (SOR/2011-17) – Section 23 and ASTM F963 – 17 - Standard Consumer Safety Specification for Toy Safety.


Our paint colours are 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 So reliable on service and paint quality Love all the historic colours. I have used Farrow and Ball paint for all my rooms for the past 30 years and I am never disappointed with the choice available. Living and looking after a listed house it is so reassuring to find colours that just blend effortlessly into the fabric of a room and age with the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely colour Purchased this colour as we wanted a warm grey with no tint of blue. We were worried it would be a bit too beige and not go with the grey carpet. Not sure why there are some reviews saying that three coats were required …. Two layers were plenty and gave the full coverage. Only thing is the cost however it is a very expensive paint and if you can find a shade in dulux that you like more then that would be a cost efficiant version as quality is just as good and is £30 cheaper for the equivalent version of ‘modern emulsion’

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent colour I love this colour, a great alternative to white. It's a soft, light and warmish grey. I have used this throughout the house paired up with much bolder colours and it looks great. The service is also fantastic, the paints are delivered very quickly.
