Exterior paint color...

Posted by guilfordmom2 (My Page) on

Our house is in desperate need of new paint. We would like to lighten the color so it isn't so drab, we have looked at various BM colors (sail cloth, bleeker beige). We have also considered a yellow but cannot agree on a shade we both like. The trim will be white, the door will be a wood door with cherry stain and we would like to paint the shutters either a dark blue (Newburyport)or dark green (Essex). The roof is going to stay the same as the pictures (dark gray). If someone could photoshop this photo to show us the different color options that would be great. Let me know if you need any other info and thanks in advance for all of your help.

RE: Exterior paint color...

You have a loverly home.

I am just getting ready to repaint our brick (although we're considering removing more paint and sealing it for a more rustic look). The color we picked is Monterey White (BM HC-27), which is very similar to Sail Cloth.

We saw it painted on a house in our neighborhood, and it is a very soft, creamy color and will go great with our hunter green shutters. The house has black shutters and it looks fantastic.

Although the house we saw it on is a stucco tudor,you should be able to visualize it on your house. Here's a picture:

Hope this helps.

RE: Exterior paint color...
