It was Duron (now Sherwin Williams) shell white. Please be careful as photos and specific lighting can distort colors. I always recommend having the painter create large samples on the walls before committing. Look at the color in different lighting conditions before you make a final decision.

The door is a very dark ebony stain. I personally really don't like brown roofs (personal bias). You can use black or charcoal grey even with brown below. I think it looks great with just about everything.

I really appreciate your thoughts. I like a dark stained door but I do not like a brown roof as much as a black roof either. I am building a house in Cincinnati but choosing everything from Fayetteville, AR and I am depending on the internet and nice people like you to make decisions from afar. I am hoping Sherwin Williams still has this color because it is beautiful!!! We are having beige windows since they have been ordered already. Black roof, black door, beige windows and Shell White. :) Sound nice????

It does sound nice . . . . however, be careful of beige as there are many versions and it could clash with the paint color. I would find out the window manufacturer and get a sample of their beige and then have some samples of paint colors that you can compare from Arkansas. Make sure you look at everything in natural light as it is much different than artificial lighting. Hope that helps!

I so appreciate your advice! Just emailed my builder to have a sample of our "beige pella window" sent to me. Thank you!!! One more question if you don't mind? Our house will also have a copper roof over the entry way. Can I still do a black roof and ebony/black wrought iron front door? Thank you

Or perhaps a charcoal/black roof and dark stained front door? :)

Would you mind answering this also, please? :). Should our exterior brick paint color be lighter, darker or same match as our beige window color ? I have Pella sending a sample to me. I attached a picture of what our house style will be. Just painted brick and we will ha e stone also. Thank you!!!!

I think they could either be tone on tone or the same color. You should consider a lime wash on the brick as opposed to painting as it allows the brick to breathe. You can let the brick color come through or by applying more coats, get more of a solid color look. The lime wash wears over time as opposed to peeling like paint. Something to consider. You can google it and find some information . . .
