" True Gray" for Door & Shutters(Briarwood Siding)

nehomeNovember 11, 2012

My two story colonial style home currently has clapboard siding painted BM Briarwood, trim is off white,shutters and front door are currently a high gloss black. I was thinking of softening the black a bit and going with a dark gray. Some of the BM paint chips I've picked up have a navy cast to them in the sunlight (BM witching hour, gravel gray, racoon fur,day's end) I have three other swatches (wrought iron, gray, black panther)that I don't think have a navy cast but I've been looking at so many shades of gray and black I'm not sure anymore. Can anyone recommend a true gray accent color that works well with Briarwood? I'm off to buy samples for the 3 paint chips that I think will work.

I'm having difficulty imagining BM Briarwood with gray because Briarwood looks brown on my screen.

I can't comment on the Briarwood color you mentioned but I have Black Panther on my bathroom cabinet - it's a nice black, soft not too stark. A nice color if you are looking for a softer look. I can't comment how it looks in the sun, it's a small bath without natural sunlight.
