SW Greige/Gray/Beige for exterior -- thoughts?

Posted by mcflurry (My Page) on

We are repainting our newer craftsman style house and I'm thinking of these SW colors... I want to use chameleon colors -- is it gray? green? beige? We have a lot of stone work in the front so I've tried to choose these colors to coordinate with the stone.

Any experience with these colors?

For first story (including garage doors):
7052 Gray Area or
7053 Adaptive Shade

For second story:
6149 Relaxed Khaki or
6150 Universal Khaki

6119 Antique White or
6133 Muslin

Door: stained a dark brown with some red tones (also have some decorative shingles that I may need to stain this color as well)

Hi McFlurry we just went through the same thing we wanted grays with a beige tone. We picked SW Perfect Greige for bottom, SW spalding gray for shakes and SW turkish coffee for shutters and accent...our door will be stained as well. I don't think you can go wrong with any colors you picked....adaptive shade is really nice. Good luck!!

I had my MB painted relaxed khaki yesterday and I love it! I tested universal khaki too, but i felt it was too dark for me. But it's stil a great color. RK looked fresher to me I guess bc it's lighter. U can't go wrong w/ either.
