Help Needed Picking Exterior Paint Color

jenk1013September 14, 2010

We just bought this split ranch style home. It is situated in a woodsy area so lots of shade. We are planning to repaint the house as soon as we move in.

We don't like the two-toned look so we were thinking of going all one color. We are leaning toward something in the gray, gray-blue, slate, taupe or pewter family. Does anyone have any suggestions for specific colors that we might want to check out.
