RE: what color with red windows

Are you speaking of the color of your house exterior? Do you mean like a Georgia clay? If so, an ivory. IF it is more toward a fire-engine red clay, taupe. What other colors do you have? You might need to take that into consideration.

RE: what color with red windows

Im talking about the exterior, we plan to use shake siding and the cladding on the windows would be brick red. Im wanting a simple exterior so the door will be stained wood . We have sw westhighland white on our out buildings with sw barn red for doors. I feel like the actual white will be to harsh/ stark for a whole house since we won't have multiple siding choices to break up the exterior. So I'm wanting white still but nothing creamy or yellow, but I guess more of a Greig/white.

I think optic white would be too stark and you are probably right about a grey-beige. I think that is where you should start looking. Can you take samples with you to a Benjamin Moore store and let their decorator help you?
