Exterior Paint Color Consultation in Riverside CT with Simply White


 Body Color Benjamin Moore Simply White OC-117
 Trim Color Benjamin Moore Snow White OC-66
Shutter Color  Benjamin Moore Hale Navy HC-154
Door  Color Benjamin Moore Counry Redwood PM-16


My lovely clients called me for an on-site consultation when they decided to change their exterior color to white, but they didn't know which one.

Whites paint colors are not created equal.   Not even almost.   And there are hundreds of whites.

As usual, my consultation involved viewing large paint color boards on different parts of the house to see how the colors interacted in the light and surroundings.

Pleased my clients loved my suggestion to put my favorite navy on the shutters - Benjamin Moore Hale Navy.  A classic look without the typical black.

Benjamin Moore Snow White was selected as the trim color.   A bright white offering enough contrast with Simply White.

Perfect example of a white that leans yellow (Simply White) compared to a white that leans blue (Snow White).

Note Simply White looks and feels warm, while Snow White looks and feels cold.

And the fabulous red door is Benjamin Moore's Country Redwood PM-16.

Country Redwood, the existing door color was perfect and remained, but re-painted in Benjamin Moore's Grand Entrance product in high gloss, for a sophisticated European sensibility.

Beautiful home.  Beautiful paint job.

Another color mission accomplished.
