House color - Does anyone know what the color of this home is? It appears to be a grey/green color and I LOVE IT and would like to do my home in the same color if possible?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Matt Kilburn added this to 8 Ways a Garden Can Draw You In
4. Changes in path materials. Consideration should be given to the size and materials of garden paths, as this can greatly enhance the experience in your garden. Larger, more defined paths allow for quicker movement and provide the opportunity to look up from the path to the surrounding environment. This works well to direct focus to features in the distance.Smaller, more irregular paths (such as those made of flagstone or uneven brickwork) require visitors to slow their pace and direct their eyes downward. This is a great way to draw attention to the small details in the immediate surrounding area. Changing the material and/or scale of a path is also an effective way to signal the transition into a new garden room.
