Persimmon traditional-exterior


This renovation project began with the screen doors. Warped and rotted, they needed replacing. From there, it evolved into a new kitchen, mudroom, reconfigured interior spaces, and a general spiffing up both inside and out. The result is a cohesive product, complete and requiring only regular maintenance.

Thanks for your question. The color is a custom mix with Benjamin Moore.

Are you able to share the BM paint recipe for either of the custom mixes?

Can you adequately shovel this gravel driveway?

Beautiful use of natural stones! Should you want to eliminate all related winter can pour on SOLUV resin: clear UV resin binder. SOLUV has been designed for winter states/provinces.

Thanks for the question! The paint is by Benjamin Moore, but is NOT Persimmon 2088-40. Its a custom mixed color. I believe we started with the persimmon color as the base, and added different variations of colors to get the right hue for this project.

Erin Lang Norris added this to Gravel Driveways: Crunching the Pros and Cons
Now that you have a quick rundown of what to expect from gravel, let's talk about the fun part: aesthetics. Given the natural tones of the pebbles that make up a gravel driveway, it is likely to be a good choice next to a warm- or neutral-color exterior.
