I don't know the name of the color - the table was custom made and painted - I just chose the color from the chart that they had.

what is the color on the exterior

Although the photo colors look identical to what I did, my house was actually a semisweet chocolate brown color with cream trim and a chartreuse-lime green door. I no longer live there and don't have the stain colors, but it was very nice, and found at the Sherwin Williams store. I would suggest that if you decide to go that dark on the siding, to make the white very creamy. Mine was too white the first go-round, and I had to have it re-done. There was too much contrast and it looked dead and cheap.

I don't know exactly what the equivalent would be in Benjamin Moore, but white dove seems to be a very popular choice. The best option is to buy some white samples and paint them next to the color on the house. On my house, depending on the light, the exterior ranges from looking dark green to a medium grey, so put up some samples before you commit. Good luck.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Paint Your Patio FurnitureTime required: Half a day to clean, prime and paint two coats.Starting budget: A gallon of primer, a gallon of paint and a brush will run you around $50. Chances are, you already have a few of these things stored somewhere. Your tired old picnic table will take on a whole new look with a bright coat of paint. If you want to get a mix and match look, paint the table and chairs different colors.
At the end of the day, there’s no beating a can of paint for quick, easy and affordable updates. This everyday picnic table feels fresh and exciting in a coat of neon green. Accessorize your new furniture with complementary colors to really help the neon pop.
Wiley left the outside pretty much as is. The midcentury exterior was simply updated with a new neutral color and fresh, white trim.More: When to Paint Your Door Blue
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Green
Green OutsideA shot of bright lime is just what this subdued, earthy color palette needed. Perfect.
So you like the idea, but you just can't imagine doing it on your everyday house? If you're lucky enough to own a vacation property, that may be where you experiment. A woodsy cabin is the opposite of rustic when it's painted all black. A lime green picnic table and teal door add that cheerful pop of color.
