Need to find the right shade of orange!
August 5, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We want to paint the exterior of our cabin orange....i was thinking a deep burnt orange, papaya, persimmon color... Can anyone suggest specific paint colors?

Our cabin is in a little section of vacation cabins near the beach in northwest Washington. It is a very eclectic area, with old historic homes, new builds, modern, craftsman, etc. Our cabin was built in the 60's and I have no idea what style you would call it, but it is unlike all the others. We just got a new, dark grey roof, and it has a lot of exposed 4x12 beams painted a dark brown.

if you really want Orange. Try SW #6885 Knockout Orange, SW#6880 Energetic Orange or SW 6884 Obstinate Orange

I just tried a SW stain ( they can match it in paint) called Cape Cod Red that had a definite orange undertone and a burnt orange appearance when painted on our door. I thought it might be my eyes because the color didn't really resemble the chip or this photo. Then I spilled most of a gallon in the back seat of my truck and my husband and I agreed: Nope, it's orange. It might be worth a try. It was a pretty color without falling into halloween territory.

Thanks for your suggestions - close to what i want, but i'd like a little more "vibrant", a little more "painted village" color...

Can you give us an idea of what a 'painted village' looks like?
