We have decided on a tan/white color combo. I would have done a gray, but the roof is kind of a reddish brown, and it's not set to be replaced anytime soon. So, here are my choices. (I'm also including one that is exposed for the roof color...this is the best I can do with my little phone camera lol). Husband has ruled out body color option #1 because it's too close to the color of the bare siding and we won't be able to tell if they've painted! So, I'm leaning toward option #2 which is Sherwin Williams 7532-Urban Putty. If I go with that, which of the trim options do you think would look best? Left side is 7005-Pure White, Right side is 7628-Windfresh White, Bottom is 7012-Creamy. I'm thinking the Pure White, but wanted some other opinions before I say go. Would appreciate opinions :)

Good call on the Urban Putty .. I like it best too.

I like the bottom, long strip ... is it the creamy? I think the bright white is too stark.

What about summer heat? White is the best reflector, and looks very crisp...?

Thanks! Yep, that's the Creamy. And, it's a tossup in my mind between the Pure White and the Creamy. I guess I'm kind of predictable ..umm, boring maybe;), because our interior is primarily Accessible Beige with Alabaster. LOL I guess I like beige with not-quite-white.

I'm a fan of the pure white with the urban putty myself.
