Starting at the top:


Pratt and Lambert 1870- Scarlett O’Hara

A classic color with a classic name. Nothing says “come on in” like a bold shade of a warm red.


Benjamin Moore Grand Entrance Sullivan Green 560

Bright and fresh, green is the flawless tone for a summery feeling all year long.


Fine Paints of Europe Hollandlac 9925

Looking for a pick-me-up for your traditional home? This lake-like blue is the quintessential shade of steel blue.



Benjamin Moore Regal Select Mohegan Sage 2138-30

If you’re more of a fan of blending, this neutral is is a dreamy mix of gray and brown.


Dunn-Edwards Evershield Citron DE5473

Cirton is a quickly growing favorite in the design world.  It’s happy as sunshine and as cool as can be.


Sydney Harbour Paints Aqua Glass Enamel Deep Sea

This shade packs a punch, it’s a combination of purple, blue, and a dash of smokey gray. It is reminiscent of a deep London Fog.


Benjamin Moore Impervo Black Forest Green

Who knew black and green could make a bold neutral? This deep dark green is great for a less-rigid black.


C2 Paint Premium Exterior Woodpecker C386

Want a color as moody as the winter weather? This shade can look gray, beige, or even a little green depending on the day and it’s surroundings.


Benjamin Moore Aura Wenge AF-180

This drama-filled brown has hues of purple, magenta, and red. Use it with gray tones to spice up your neutrals.


Benjamin Moore Impervex Covington Blue HC-130

A blend of blue and green that is reminiscent of Charleston porches!


Farrow and Ball Exterior Full Gloss Lulworth Blue 89

A combination of periwinkle and blue is always good for a pick-me-up. Try it in a high gloss to keeping it looking fresher longer.


Benjamin Moore Advance Electric Orange 2015-10

For a retro house with a modern feel, orange is sure to be the talk of the neighborhood!
