Louisa - Thanks for your question. If memory serves, it is Ben Moore HC-166 Kendall Charcoal. We've used it a number of times when we want a charcoal gray with some warmth.

Hope that helps.

Thanks!

Thanks for your question.

That's a tough one as the color was picked by the owner (I would have toned it down just a bit but, to her credit, it worked out well) and I'm not sure it's still available. Two colors that I believe are close and could get you started are Ben Moore 405 'Perennial' and Sherwin-Williams SW6711 'Parakeet'

hope that helps.

Thanks!

Thanks very much. I am looking for a toned down version of this color scheme....do you have any suggestions for what you may had in mind?

Hey Thanks! We appreciate it! While you might not live in Seattle we certainly can (and have) done work outside the region. It's not much of a challenge at all.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

To gain the oh-so-valuable rays of the sun, the ideal plan for a house is a linear one with living spaces oriented to the south (in the northern hemisphere; to the north in the southern hemisphere). It's then good practice to place deciduous trees on the same side, so the sun is filtered in the hot summer months, but with the leaves off the trees in colder months the sun can penetrate to the house's interior. This house near Seattle, designed by Mohler + Ghillino Architects, opens up toward the sun, but it also takes advantage of fir trees to the north to block cold winds in the winter.
