I'm not sure, but I think we used Benjamin Moore. I would check their website and choose a paint color that goes well with the color of your house.

what is the name and company of exterior lights?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Looks like Lantern & Scroll to me. I've seen very similar fixtures there, and if they don't have these exact ones they can make them for you. They are really nice to work with and the prices are very reasonable. Cheers!

Our apologies, but we do not have these lights on record. I believe the clients must have picked these out themselves. - FGY

I'm not sure I understand if your question is asking what material the shingle is or what color it is however its a cedar shingle with Cabot stains color "Spanish Moss"

Hi. Sorry its taken soooo long for us to respond. The color of the front door is something that we worked on, on site. It's a mix of Benjamin Moore warm whites and darker greys. The door was designed by us and made by a local company.

Flanked by planters, windows and lanterns, this Craftsman entry couldn't be more inviting. I especially love the white and gray color palette.
