Exterior Paint Color Scheme
I knew I wanted the exterior paint to be a dark color like another house I had done, in Sherwin Williams Naval #SW6244, which by the way is 2020 #coloroftheyear . So I choose something close with a little more depth and edge to it. I landed on Sherwin Williams Sea Serpent #SW7615. If you were to ask me to describe it I would say it is a dark cyan-blue with a hint of mermaid scales.
Next up a color for the shutters. I wanted it to pop and have a cute cottagey vibe. Since the house was from the 1940’s. I wanted to honor the pallet of the era, so I choose Sherwin Williams Festoon Aqua #SW019. It has been describes as smokey shade of aqua which made it perfect.
You could have guessed it! The trim is Sherwin Williams Pure White #SW7005, which is basically pure white with a drop of yellow to mimic a drop of sunshine.
