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 92.

Product Information 
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 132 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

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 Perfect colour! Fabulous colour and thrilled with finished result! Daughter in law just seen it and thinks it will be the perfect colour for their hall - we have sent the home with the sample pot refilled from bigger pots we bought!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luminous warm gray I'm using this for living room trim, and for the inside of my entry door. I find it so warm and lovely I keep staring at the trim, which is ridiculous and also weirdly nice. This is my second time using F&B. As with the other color I used, this one looked a little odd until the second coat had dried, when it became its luminous self.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a revelation I've always used cream and white emulsions in the past, but this time I thought I'd be a bit more adventurous and opted for grey. It's been a revelation because I never fully comprehended how much impact the colour of a room can have on your mood and overall wellbeing. The softness and depth of Ammonite has an instant calming effect. I had worried it might be a bit dull, hard looking and harsh but I needn't have worried at all as the opposite has happened; I find I relax and sigh a huge sigh of relief the instant I walk in the room. I I only wish I'd done this years ago!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Grey shade Just finished painting a refurbished bathroom. Splash panels round bath and shower were a soft pinky grey and floor grey oak effect. The Ammonite shade was perfect to blend them all together. Two coats required due to areas of bathroom being replastered. Delighted with finish.
