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 243.

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


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 A perfect match for our kitchen units We bought a couple of tester pots before deciding on Ammonite for our new kitchen wallboarding. It is a lovely grey/beige colour which changes in the morning light from a pale colour to a slightly darker hue as the daylight fades. This is the first time we have used Farrow & Ball paint and we are so glad we chose it as it is easy to apply and has a lovely finish. We read lots of reviews and looked at lots of photos before buying and are so pleased we did as it helped us narrow down our choice. We are delighted with the colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ammonite 274 Highly recommend this paint, a little on the expensive side but a beautiful colour and a lovely finish. Looks different in each room and in different lights. A gorgeous modern addition to a home, the new white and my new favourite wall colour by a mile! Great service from Farrow & Ball too. You get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service I ordered my paint sample on line, without fuss. It arrived promptly by courier. My local stockist, (big company!) as usual did not have in stock the sample I wanted. Next time I will cut the middle man and order direct again. As usual, absolutely lovely paint and perfect colour.....does what it says on the tin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful service I had a problem with my order, delivery of which was missing, staff dealt with it just superbly. I was glad my decorators didn’t have to be cancelled and you could continue with my refurbishment. Colour and quality of paint never disappoints. First class all around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best paint Prior to buying this paint I had never tired F&B before, I am so impressed at how hard wearing and beautiful this paint is. Would recommend and will definitely be repurchasing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Easy to apply and most importantly - odourless! I balked at the price but it is worth it for the consistency and lack of smell , just hope the floor paint is durable, but it is too early to say.
