POPULAR SHERWIN WILLIAMS EXTERIOR PAINT COLORS
Anytime I get a call about selecting exterior colors I begin with a list of my popular go-to colors.
You see, if they are popular, then most likely the color has been tried again and again. It’s going to be a great color for your house, too!
Once my client narrows down to three colors, we search Pinterest for houses with that paint color. To make this easy for you, I have collected some great examples for you in this post. So, without taking up any more time, lets get to the fun part and see how lovely these colors look on houses.
SEA SALT SW 6204
Sea Salt is a personal favorite color. It is refreshing and charming. See how lovely it goes with the stone on this Bell Custom Home?
ALABASTER WHITE SW 7008
You know you have the right color when you are featured in a magazine like Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle.
But honestly, you cannot go wrong with the color Alabaster.
It is such a versatile and popular color; Sherwin Williams even had it as the color of the year in 2017.
Some other great white colors by Sherwin Williams are Pure White and Extra white.
REPOSE GRAY SW 7015
Gray colors are super trendy right now, and repose gray is both great on the interior or exterior of a home.
Look at this adorable cottage in Watercolor, Florida. The soft color of Repose Gray is perfect against the pine trees and landscape of North Florida.
Other popular Sherwin Williams gray colors are Mindful Gray and Agreeable Gray.
ACCESSIBLE BEIGE SW 7036
Now, this was a big decision on which color to feature because I have two colors I like to use in the beige family on the exterior. Accessible Beige won because it was the easiest to find a picture to show you, but I love Kilim Beige very much, too.
Don’t forget my other favorite beige is Kilim Beige.
REAL RED SW 6868
Talk about a timeless and traditional look! We love a classic red door.
A red door color can be tricky, though, because, if you are not careful, it can come out too orange. So check out this eye-catching red door featured on Southern Living Magazines website. See how the color Real Red is a perfect red for a traditional white house.
TRICORN BLACK SW 6258
For the last color, I think you will be surprised at how beautiful it is on an entire house. Typically we use black on shutters or doors, but think outside of the box and consider painting your whole house Tricorn Black. Here is a beautiful example of it from GR Interiors.
