Hello friends! We are in full summer mode, and I have been trying to keep my head above water. We have been busy outside trying to figure out landscaping, building a shed, sprinklers, getting rid of our junk, marathon training, camping trips, huckleberry picking…oh so many great things I love about this time of year, but it’s also a little exhausting. I know you know exactly what I’m talking about. We have also been busy outside trying to figure out landscaping, building a shed, sprinklers,so needless to say – exteriors are on our mind. We are also in a very brand new subdivision and houses are getting painted everyday, some of the colors I love…others I wonder if they even sampled?? Exterior paint can be so tricky, and I know that this time of year is when many people decide to update the outside of their homes.
We painted our whole exterior last year…it was the most stressful summer of my life, and I have a post coming soon on that. There were definitely things that I would do differently, but today, I am all about inspiration.
Here are some of my favorite exterior paint colors that will hopefully help you when picking out your exterior paint color.
First up, I am going to show you our exterior because picking our exterior paint color was something I agonized over. Do we do white, gray, dark gray, blue…so many different options out there, but we ultimately chose white and I have been so happy with it.
Exterior paint color: Alabaster by Sherwin-Williams
Exterior door color: Web Gray by Sherwin-Williams (150% strength)

(I have yet to see this on a home I don’t love. Also, I don’t have the source, so if someone knows where this is from please let me know.)
One of my favorite yellows I’ve ever seen on an exterior.
