Create a monochromatic base for stucco by matching the tone of the angel stone (we suggested CC-490 Stone Hearth). Find the right colour for the strapping on the tudor, it may be as easy as matching the grout colour (we suggested AF-155 Weimeraner).
For this home Meg from Spaces Design was inspired by the charcoal window griding, so the window trim will match that with a deep colour (CC-542 Willow). She also suggested this deep colour for the garage doors too, so it will balance nicely with all the taupes. Willow is a great colour, because it’s a mix of charcoal and chocolate, since the roof of this home is chocolate…it works well.
One of our in-store designers Meg from Spaces Design recently shared with us the before/after pics of a home she chose paint colours for a few years ago. The paint colours on this home were dated and boring. The homeowners wanted to go for a classic look and bring in some colour tones from nature, as their home backs on to a ravine.
Meg chose a Benjamin Moore tone in a muted green taupe for the stucco CC-540 Stampede, the trim and garage are a shade or two lighter CC-530 Brandon Beige. She had to work with the existing soffits & fascia which were in a yellow tone, so the green/brown worked great. For an elegance look, the front doors and shutters were painted in the darkest chocolate you will find in the Benjamin Moore colour preview collection (2114-10 Bitttersweet Chocolate). It gives the look of a rich and dark stained wood.
Don’t forget, one of the most important components of this project was the amazing paint crew that brought it to fruition.
Many thanks to McConnell Painting from Oakville,ON.
This porch’s warm palette evokes a welcoming aura that’s perfect for entertaining guests or lounging away in summer. The richmond gold (HC-41) floor color complements the finely-crafted front door and blends nicely with the house’s clarksville gray (HC-102) body color. The immaculate off-white trim lends the perfect touch for a clean overall look.
Accentuating the vivid color of the flowers and creating a welcoming visual presence, the eye-catching pomegranate(AF-295) front door makes an unforgettable first impression. Its splendid contrast with the neutral timber wolf (1600) body color and the classic snowfall white (OC-118) trim dramatically livens up the overall look of the house.
Add some drama to a deck with different tones of stain. We gave this outdoor room a classic feel with a warm charcoal stain (2134-30 Iron Mountain) and to keep the look fresh we stained the floor of the deck in a soft taupe that compliments the brick well (CC-490 Stone Hearth). To warm up the look we stained the bench and shelf in a transparent stain in (Teak).
