Exterior paint color help

hanh88July 12, 2010

I am looking for grayish/green (more of a gray color with green undertones) for the exterior of my house. Any suggestions or pictures of exterior homes painted that color? I have bought 10 samples and narrowed it down to Olive Gray (by Pittsburgh Paints) and Nantucket Gray (Benjamin Moore). Has anyone used those two colors? I'm afraid they are either too dark or too green. I also want a red door to go with it so any advice on red color would help. Thanks.

I was going to suggest Nantucket Gray - I think it'd be fab on an exterior. SW's Polished Mahogany or BenM's Cottage Red are worth a look-see for the door.

I'll concur with the Nantucket Gray!
Another darker gray/green I like is Benjamin Moore Raintree Green from the Classic Colors. The red door will look fantastic!
