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
Excellent paint The quality and colour of this paint is excellent - Thank you Farrow & Ball - will definitely use again - would recommend to family and friends. March 18, 2014
Ammonite This is a lovely chalky grey colour, very similar to the colour of putty....it does not have blue tones which I was worried about....it took 3 coats to get the perfect finish and not the best paint to paint with but worth it in the end....I find the colour compliments dark brown and maybe a bit cold with black....i've painted my whole 4 bed house which cost a fortune but worth every penny..

A soft light grey Used modern emulsion in daughters playroom, great clean soft neutral with all white trim and white furniture. It looks very modern in this setting and balances out the pink and primary colour toys. I have used cornforth white in the hall and it is definitely a shade lighter. February 17, 2014
fabulous colour I have used this lovely grey on walls throughout our new self build - we are fortunate to have many windows and so lots of natural light and it is the most wonderful warm pale grey - no hint of blueishness at all. As with most F&B colours it alters with the time of day and the light - very pale almost white grey in very bright sunlight to a warm stony grey in dim light. I have teamed it with Wevet eggshell on all of the woodwork and along with dark oak floors it looks amazing - I tried many different sample pots to find the right grey and am totally thrilled with this! It also looks fab in the kitchen teamed with cupboards painted in in Purbeck Stone which is the perfect complement. February 12, 2014
Gorgeous colour Just makes the hallway look totally different in a very subtle way...if that makes sense. Matches well with 'Cornforth white' cloakroom door. Have 'Blackened' in the living room which was my favourite until now. January 31, 2014
