Newbie needs help with acrylic stucco color

Posted by cinlou8 (My Page) on

We are doing acrylic stucco and I have chosen BM Slate Gray. However when the sample arrived, it looks too blue. So I am lost as we don't want something that looks too blue.

We have charcoal gray shingles, white trim and shadow bands, and the trim around the 2 front windows and 3 garage bays is a darker gray. Our stone work is called Nantucket.

Any thoughts would be great...has to be Benjamin Moore though. Thanks!

Here is a picture of the stone with the original BM Shaker Gray (sorry, in my first message I said Slate is Shaker Gray) sample.

do you have to go with gray? what about a cream?

RE: Newbie needs help with acrylic stucco color

Why don't you ask your builder for additional samples? I'd second the cream color idea. The challenge for a gray finish, as you have already found out, is to find a gray that is warm, not cold temperature.

Good luck with your project.
