Exterior Paint Color Transformation in Cumming

Several months ago SuperiorPRO got the call to paint the exterior of a Cumming home.  In order to update the home, as the paint color consultant I typically strive to get the homeowners to come off of the stark white trim and stark black accents that so many of our homes in the south still have.  These homeowners were totally on board.  Here is the “before” shot:

In determining a new color palette for the exterior, it is crucial to take into consideration the unchanging elements — brick, stone, mortar, roof color, etc.  In this case we decided to play up the green hues in the roof along with the greenish/blue accent tones of the brick.  As I recall, we took a considerable amount of time trying to find just the right shade of greenish/blue without going too blue.  It’s always good to keep in mind that outside, all colors read lighter and brighter.  Notice how in the picture above, the cool gray tones of the metal overhangs don’t relate to anything else on the house.
After checking and double checking the color samples with the brick, we decided on the following palette:
Body:  Link Gray, SW6200
Wood trim, gutters & downspouts:  Sensible Hue, SW6198
Stucco Accents:  Rare Gray, SW#6199
Accents:  Iron Ore, SW#7069
After much consideration, the homeowners also decided to paint the garage doors the same color as the siding – Link Gray.  Here is the “after” photo:

I absolutely love the way the new paint colors brought this home to life!  Green is the complement to red on the color wheel, so there was no doubt they would work well together.  Also, I think the homeowners made the right choice to paint the garage doors in the deeper tones of the siding to add more richness and depth of color.  What do you think?
If you are about to embark on an exterior painting project, I hope you will give SuperiorPRO Painting & Exteriors the opportunity to bid on the job.  And for a whole house paint job, they will give you a free color consultation.
