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 110.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

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.


QUALITY FINISHES

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.

Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour We always use Farrow & Ball paint because we love the depth of colour it gives. It’s coverage is excellent and almost odourless too. This is the first time we’ve used the colour “Ammonite” and we think it’s fabulous? We had the entrance hallway walls done in Ammonite estate emulsion and the ceiling in All White estate emulsion. Everyone complements us on the colour scheme.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ammonite Dead Flat - gorgeous Gorgeous colour and finish. Really happy with it on 17th century beams, alongside chalk white walls to modernise this cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect finish for our barn renovation This colour has finished off the effect I wanted in our kitchen, hallway & cloakroom. The kitchen has painted white & indigo cupboard doors with copper features and lighting. It complements our warm flint walls of the barn and oak wooden doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Colour I bought a tester pot for my hallway/landing. It reads as a beautiful grey with a hint of beige in my house. A stunning colour which I would have chosen but needed a white neutral colour to go with flooring that we subsequently chose otherwise would have definitely chose Ammonite.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool and Calm I have so many favourites in the Farrow & Ball range but I absolutely love this colour. So neutral and calm but not cold. My decorator says its great to work with and the coverage is superb. I have this in a few rooms already but now having the hall and landings done too!
