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 249.

Get the most out of your sample pot order with our three-step guide to testing colours at home.


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 Warm grey combines well with blacks and browns Ammonite brought together our brown/greenish rustic style wooden flooring with Off Black ceilings perfectly to achieve industrial style without becoming cold. Took two layers on primer, watering down the modern emulsion 20% to roll well. Definitely recommend - fab effect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint The paint went on beautifully and the colour is perfect for our kitchen and looks great with the pigeon cabinets. It is a shame you have to pay for delivery, I will go to the store next time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely, warm but bright colour So happy with this purchase. I used it with Verde which is a lovely combination. A light colour still to make the most of the space but so much warmer than white

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A gentle grey An understated, fresh grey. Quite light and a subtle pinkish hue in some light but remains modern. Looks great with a white trim.

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.
