Need exterior house colors for new construction.
July 12, 2013
We are building a new cottage on an inland lake in Northern Michigan. We want it to look like it has always been there. We are using fiber cement siding, shakes and lap siding. Colors need to be in Sherwin Williams paint deck. House style Is Craftsman type, and my husband is not a super fan of green.

What I forgot to add is that there are a lot of trees surrounding the yard and a darker color might be most practical?

I would do a porcelain blue. Classic cottage color. Or an off-white like Benjamin Moore's Swiss Coffee or White Dove. Sherwin Williams can match the color.

Thank you fornyour comment. We ended up doing a very dark Navy with cream trim and we love it. I am considering a dark pumpkin color door. Too.
