Ammonite

No.274

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 126.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent on staircase! Worth the wait to receive this. I used this on my staircase with Railings and it looks wonderful. Excellent coverage in two coats. So much left over for other projects too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning, calm colour I chose Ammonite for my all-white new build house. The lounge looked unfinished and lacked ‘coziness’. Ammonite has added a beautiful warmth to the room. The Estate Emulsion went on like a dream, needing only two coats abs producing a stunning, chalky finish. The only downside is that this classy colour now makes me want a new sofa to keep up...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best paint ever I bought my first tin to paint the hall. I then bought more to paint 2 bedrooms and the kitchen. It's the best paint I have ever used ,it goes on well and doesn't splash everywhere when using a roller. The finished effect is great and it seems to change colour in different lights..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ammonite - Living Room The room had been painted "lemon curd" by the previous owner, which was paired with matching flouncy curtains made from a Laura Ashely floral print...... So to be honest, any colour in the F&B arsenal would have represented a quantum leap forward. 'Ammonite' seemed like a sensible choice, pale grey, contemporary, clean (and not lemon!) The finished result is lovely, white/grey reflecting tones of lavender and lilac. Everyone that walks into the room complements it and asks what the colour is!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Paint We painted our living room in our contemporary new build Ammonite. We’ve used F&B paints before and have loved them so we knew the end result would be perfect. This is lovely light grey that doesn’t feel depressing to sit in and I love how all the white door surrounds etc pop against the grey. I find painting with regular paints a bit of a chore having to do 3 coats sometimes but using F&B paint is a pleasure. It coats really well (2 coats does it) and it feels completely different using it. I actually quite enjoy the whole process, you can literally see the wall transforming before you.
