Ammonite 4.6 5 17 17
Excellent product The product is more expensive than other paints but does not disappoint and also gives excellent coverage compared to other suppliers of paint. November 28, 2014
Perfect for north facing rooms or areas that dont get a lot of natural light. I love this colour....it is perfect for those areas that do not get a lot of natural light. I wanted a warm grey for my Hall, stairs and landing that had very little natural light and Ammonite was perfect. Warm, inviting & bright without closing in the space like all the other grey samples I tired including cornforth white, which I initially thought would work but it was way too dark for our area.

The perfect grey for Florida I chose three sample greys from Farrow and Ball to paint my daughter's bedroom in sunny Florida. This was the perfect color as it was dark enough to be grey, but not too dark. I LOVE how this color turned out in her bedroom….cool and crisp with white trim. August 22, 2014
Changes a lot depending on the light This is a tricky colour to pin down. I wanted a very crisp pale grey to contrast with white woodwork, but depending on where I painted test patches it either looked quite brown or quite blue, though in direct sunlight with the light coming in at right angles it was a perfect pale grey. In the end I decided it was a bit too strong and brown for going on all the bedroom walls, so I painted them mainly in Strong White and used this for the back wall which sits in shadow. When seen against Strong White it is only a little bit darker and more coloured, barely noticeable - and for my project the purer cleaner grey of Strong White was the better one. We did paint the ensuite walls in Ammonite Modern Emulsion though as, paired with grey slate floor, white shell wall tiles and lots of white fittings and chrome, it was a good match. As always, the quality and coverage of F&B paints was lovely. June 6, 2014
dissappointed with the colour I am a huge Farrow and Ball fan and love the putty tones. However, for the hallway and landing I wanted a grey tone. I stupidly did not buy a tester pot, basing my choice on how it looked in the shop and the reviews on here. I never thought I would use disappointed and Farrow and Ball in the same sentence but I do here. It is pure putty - not even a hint of grey. I guess I'll learn to live with it but it isn't the colour I expected. April 15, 2014
