Eaves - Hi Stephanie, I am about to paint my house Kendal Charcoal and I would love to know what white the eaves are in this picture. I have a large overhang around the whole house I want to lighten up with an off white that does not go beige and looks good with the Kendall Charcoal. Many Thanks if you know and great job on the house!

Hi there! I used Dunn Edwards Whisper throughout the house and I think that's what I used on the exterior as well. It's a pretty white white, but it worked really well with the darker color. Good luck!

That bench is actually metal and originally bought it at OSH. It was white and I used spray paint to paint it black. Here's a link to a similar bench: http://www.wayfair.com/Jordan-Manufacturing-Maze-Metal-Garden-Bench-3K-SMAZE-JORD1018.html

I ordered the door from Lemar Hardwoods in Southern California. I think that any door/window supplier could help you out.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Debra Prinzing added this to Garden Design Essentials: Color
Find Your Color StyleWe can learn volumes about color through observation and experience. When you visit a public garden, shop at local nurseries or take a tour here on Houzz, notice which colors please your eyes.It is clear that Tiffany blue makes the owner of this cottage very happy. That's the power of color.More:The Stories Colors TellPotted Plants Perk Up the Streets of Coastal France
When putting together your palette, think about everything that is in sight while you're sitting on your patio — for example, the door. Doors are unique places to add a hot splash of color, and they can completely change the look and feel of its surroundings. Accessorize nearby furnishings with throw pillows in similar colors to tie the space together.
1. Create a mini room. Here a bench with cheery outdoor pillows, a hanging paper lantern and a framed chalkboard combine to turn a plain entrance into a sitting space all its own — all without breaking the bank. Mix and match furniture to suit your home's architecture and style.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 8 Homes With Exterior Paint Colors Done Right
If you're looking to take your house exterior fun and edgy, try a dark main color with a fun burst of color on the front door. Here is Kendall Charcoal HC-166 for the main field color and Cool Aqua 2056-40 on the front door, both by Benjamin Moore. Dark colors look great with chartreuse and emerald landscape colors.

Paint the door an unexpected color. It sounds obvious, and yet so many of us take the easy way out and go with brown, black or white. If the task of choosing a bolder hue throws you for a loop, try this trick: Snap a photo of your house, then take it to the paint store so you can see how different colors work with your exterior. Choose a shade that contrasts strongly with the primary paint color: bright pink paired with pale gray siding, turquoise against rusty red brick, plum on khaki stucco. Lipstick red in a field of crisp white is a classic, but branch out and try other colors — perhaps kelly green or Chinese yellow.
