The body of the siding is # HC-7 Bryant Gold from Benjamin Moore Paints. The trim is # 252 Olivetone, also from Benjamin Moore.

I have looked for the right turquiose for some time and when I get in on the wood it just isn't right. I like the color of the chairs. Anyone know this color and brand?

Ronnie, It is hard... managed to pick colors for the house but the turquoise color for some reason is very difficult. Is there anything I am missing in being able to tell?

Are you trying to match with another color? Maybe if you took a picture of what are trying to match the turquoise with, we can be more helpful? Can you show us the colors you picked for the house?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Gorgeous Blues and Striking Yellows
These homeowners could have gotten away with any color for their rocking chairs, given that the siding is such a subtle shade of yellow. The robin's egg blue chairs aren't too loud for this serene and relaxing porch. Tip: A blue and yellow pairing can range anywhere from highly energetic to tranquil. To keep it on the softer side, you can use more restful shades.
Becky Harris added this to 12 Ways to Prep the Porch for Summer
Breathe new life into your furniture with a fresh coat of paint. If your vintage wrought-iron, wicker and wood pieces are feeling a little stale, shake things up and paint them a vibrant color.
If your tiny porch has the room, a pair of rockers is all you need to give you the full porch experience. More:12 Ways to Prep the Porch for SummerScreen the Porch for More Living Room (Almost) All Year Round
Laura Fenton added this to Rocking Chairs Roll Onto Porches
Smith & Vansant Architects knows the welcoming power of a pair of porch rockers. For this reinterpreted farmhouse the firm opted for a cheerful turquoise set that stands out against the home's buttery exterior.
Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Color
Once you’ve given certain flower and foliage colors a starring role in the landscape, use them to guide your decisions for nonplant materials as well. Edit and enhance the palette with painted structures, furniture and artful objects. Two sky-blue rocking chairs make this front porch just as important to the garden’s color story as its blooms.
Kelly Porter added this to Aquamarine Relaxes Rooms
Another great outdoor use for aquamarine is on the front porch. Use this color to paint a pair of rockers. It's a nice way to welcome guests.Suggested paint pick: Sea Life, Behr
