Need color advice!! Looking to pick exterior paint colors for our new house.

hienschNovember 4, 2012
We are closing on our first house this week! I like the exterior paint colors but we are repainting to freshen up. Can you guys recommend any specific colors?

If you want the same feeling try Sherwin Williams' SW6141(Body,) SW7514 (Trim) and SW 7083 (Accent.) These are a Tan, Greige and Blue/Black.

HI -- Beautiful house . Apart from what color you use -- use a good masonary paint and have it sprayed on - it's easy and does a better job. We spray painted our stucco years ago and it still looks great with no peeling or anything.

LOVE your house!!!

I think using Castle Gate (CSP-75 from Benjamin Moore) on the exterior and Dulce de Leche (CSP-250 from Benjamin Moore) for the shutters, columns, and door would look great! This is a warm grey/white combo that would bring freshness to your house!
