Exterior Paint Color for Span-Mediterranean Look

ket5575May 10, 2011

I need suggestions on a Yellow paint color for a Spanish Mediterranean look. I have a red and brown colored barrel tile roof with white windows, white doors, large columns in the entry way. The light fixtures and decor on the walls are black.

Sherwin Williams Baguette. If you are in a super sunny location, ask them about doubling the amount of colorant normally shot into the can/bucket for Baguette.

The whole cutting or increasing formula hoo-ha is NOT something I usually subscribe to. However, I know what Baguette x2 looks like and how it holds up because I've used it.

Also, intensely robust rays of sunlight strips chroma from how we perceive color. So in the midwest a normal order of Baguette is a great color but in the sunny southwest it looks washed out and a lil dead. Doubling the colorant *corrects* that issue.
