More Exterior Color Options

Sunday, June 7, 2020

After my last post, I went through the Benjamin Moore historic color palette and then drove through town looking at other historic houses from the same era to make sure I hadn't missed any potential color combinations for our exterior. These are the results of that exercise.

Caldwell Green

Coventry Gray

Newburg Green

Knoxville Gray

Jamestown Blue

Hale Navy


There are colors we are certainly leaning toward, but every day our mood changes and the order of preference seems to change. While we love the Hale Navy, one worry is that it might be too much. Our kitchen is predominantly that color and I just don't want our house to be flat. Like, is it overboard?

As an aside, I love this sketch I created in Photoshop. I may plug in our current colors and get a print out of it to hang up somewhere so we can always remember the glowing gold that our house was when we bought it. (Like we could ever forget.)
