House color help!

Looking for a good dark gray -- a saturated color that still is warm....for the exterior of my house. Want to mimic those beautiful Portland, Ore. arts and crafts homes.

I have a gray now, with darker trim, but want to change to white trim.

I used a color application to mimic one of these colors -- this is Olympic Range from Sherwin-Willliams, sloppily on the left, with white trim.

Any other suggestions?


  1. I've heard Templeton Gray from Benjamin Moore is a medium-toned, warm gray. Good luck!

  2. Check out Rockport Gray, Benjamin Moore HC-105. It's a saturated gray with a hint of green/gold that warms it up. HC stands for Heritage Colors, they're sort of classic home colors that it's hard to screw up. The white trim will make a huge difference, and make your windows last longer!
