Hi! These colors really are beautiful together! I would love to experiment starting with the door color ;) Do you mind sharing color details of door, trim and body of this home? Thanks so much for your help!

Debra, I think it is helpful to share colors used. All of us who are experimenting with color understand the caveats of color on a computer screen - that's why we buy samples and put them up on a wall. Sharing a color used gives a helpful starting point - I can't imagine someone going out and purchasing 20 gallons of paint - or even one gallon - based on a verbal recommendation. Would be helpful to know what you used, since, as photographed, the colors look quite lovely.

Beautiful exterior! Can you share the names / brand of paint for the colors used?

I think everyone who gets annoyed at designers for not posting colors should only read articles where colors are named. Then go ahead and paint your whole house those colors. And it will look TERRIBLE and not be what you expected at all. Just use the photos for inspiration, for goodness sake! You want a dark charcoal door because that's what your eyeballs see on the screen -- fine! go pick our a dark charcoal paint color!! Because the color on the door in the picture is PROBABLY actually NOT what your eyeballs are seeing.

Uh, not sure how to test colors without knowing what the names are.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

You're going to have a good time. "My clients are constantly telling me that they never expected to have so much fun picking out colors!" Tate says. Clients will often call color consultants for simple help with paint colors but then wind up using them to decorate full projects. Calling a color consultant is an easy, unintimidating way to get comfortable working with a design professional. "People usually say they’ve enjoyed the process, see it as educational and confidence-building for future design decisions, and that they now have a design that they would not have thought of on their own," Jacobs says.More: How to Work With a Color ConsultantFind a color consultant near you

Of course navy blue/the dark blue/gray color is always great. Would it look ok with dark hardware? Does your front door hardware need to match interior hardware? i.e. if you are doing oil rubbed bronze on interior doors do you have to match the front door?
