The siding is red cedar, pre-primed in semi-transparent at the factory in Cabot Beechwood Gray. Then a single coat of Semi-transparent Cabot Pepperwood was applied. Most of the ext. trim is BM 1523 Embassy Green.

There are some other images, but since it is woods in the rear it is difficult to get a good shot. This is probably the best you will get:

I see Embassy Green on some trim, but it's too dark to be the window trim and porch post color. What is the lighter shade?

Sorry, but it is all the Embassy Green. Paint colors can appear to be very different depending on what light you are seeing them in and what materials are nearby. If you look closely at the colors in the photo I link here, you can see the same color trim on the posts looks very different due to very different light conditions and variable surroundings:

This home has a slate roof. It is Semi-Weathering Gray-Green, supplied by the Evergreen Slate Company in Pittsford, VT and installed by the Melanson Company.
Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shingle-style homes love to be located where there are large yards so that a strong inside/outside connection can be created. In this case, terraced landscaping and multiple porches connect the home to its yard.

We like the colors of this house. Semi transparent beechwood gray with a single layer of semi transparent Pepperwood by Cabot on top. The trim is BM Embassy Green (1523) which is very dark but seems to have a contrast in the picture. We also like the colored window casings but would use a brown instead of the reddish color on this house. (We may get some of this paint to try it out on some pieces of cedar shakes).
