Help with Exterior Trim Color--Please!

Posted by beester (My Page) on

We have finally decided on a color for our house..it's Kelly Moore "Hampstead" and I need help on finding a trim color that looks good. I cannot make a decision to save my life. Anyhow, we picked this color because my husband vetoed the taupe color I liked. Every other house in our city is some form of beige. So any advice would be welcome! You can see I painted our shed Hampstead. You can also see the lovely blue it was before...and the old gray trim that went along with it on the fascia and corner trim. In the second photo, I did paint the two vertical corner boards BM's "Sailcloth" but I think that is too bright. Opinions please! Thank you.

We're just picked Monterey White (Benj Moore HC-27) for our house (although we might just continue to remove the paint and leave it rustic).

I have seen the color on a house in my neighborhood, and it is fantastic. I think it would go great with your color because it has a hint of grey in it.
