Every week or so, I receive an email or a question on Houzz about the colors on the exterior of our little cottage. I'm pretty sure that I've covered the door color a couple hundred times - I apologize in advance to my regular readers :).
The exterior wall color isn't that easy which might explain why I have never mentioned it. Our house was this color when we moved in 16 years ago. When we need paint, we take a chip of paint from the house to the paint store and have it color matched. Unfortunately I do not currently have a can of paint with the color formula or I would share that. However, I did find the closest Benjamin Moore match(es). Please keep in mind the actual paint chips may look completely different depending on your computer settings.
China White only my house is a tiny bit darker.
OR somewhere between Going to the Chapel...
The trim color is regular white exterior trim paint. The shutters are black. The shingles are black architectural.
I hope this helps for anyone wondering.
We have plans to update the shutters one of these days. The ones on the house now are not the correct scale. Did you know that shutters, when closed should meet in the middle of the window? Well, ours don't. We also want to add back the original hardware to hold the shutters open like this...
Have you ever priced out "real" shutters? Yowzers. One day.
