  • What color is your houses exterior?

    I'm waffling... I am going to have stone on the lower half of my home.... I thought I'd do this:

    A friend of mine has this:

    And my mom who's good with design suggested this if I came off the grey idea... more earth tones:

    I can't decide...

    So I'm curious for those of you that built houses what exterior colors you used?

      Agree with djrolling. These exteriors are all by the same company, so they're probably equally durable and all that remains to be decided is optics...which one YOU think looks best.

        Obviously I'm going to pick what I like... I was just curious what others had done to get design ideas

          We are the second owner of our house, so didn't have a lot of choice, other than we could live with the exterior stone used by the original owner. The original owner selected (more or less) the stone facade you like, but used a dark gray mortar pointing. The house was originally painted light blue (always wanted to use that smilie) which was not really a good color with the stone. We painted the house using Dunn Edwards "Birchwood" for the body of the house, Dunn Edwards "Stone" for the exterior front door and side door into the garage and window trim, Dunn Edwards "Cavern" for the barge rafters. The roof color is dark gray cement tiles.

          We get compliments and passers by asking what colors we used.

            Very attractive, gjnl. The wall color and stone look great together.

                I've used to paint my house exterior wall with a very light navy bluish color. However, I like your color choices.

                  A lot depends on your roof color. We have a red tile roof, So. California, so we are limited in color choices. We recently painted it a dark rustic green with dark brown trim. We did our front yard, a few years ago, in a reddish rock from Mexico and succulents, olive trees and Italian cypress trees. We love it.
