Pls help weigh in on exterior paint colors! Pics

10 years ago

Hi all,

We're picking out paint colors for our exterior and are stuck in an indecision gridlock for months. I'd like to go from a white house with black shutters and a red door to something a little softer and more beachy (light gray house, white shutters/garage door and a soft green door). My concern is that a soft gray might be too much gray given the gray shake roof and the driveway. Would it be gray overload?

If anyone has any photoshop skills I would love to see how a light gray looks with a light blue/green door and white shutters -- I'm having a really hard time visualizing the exterior color and don't know how to use the software that shows the house in a different color.

The colors we are considering are 1) BM Gray Owl; 2) BM Revere Pewter and possibly 3) SW Ancient Marble. I imagine the shutters and garage door would be BM White Dove. The front door we have chosen BM Whythe Blue or BM Woodlawn Blue. We'd also paint the red brick at the foundation the color of the house.



and the front door:
