5 Colors to Paint the Exterior of Your Home That Aren’t White

Don’t get us wrong, we love a classic white exterior. But if you’re looking to stray from the norm with your paint color choices, white is probably not the route you plan to go. We’ve rounded up 5 paint color picks that aren’t white to add to your exterior inspo list!

1) Sherwin Williams Blue Horizon

This stunning build of Modern Farmhouse Plan 51814HZ by Longshore Custom Homes made us fall in love with Sherwin Williams Blue Horizon. This gorgeous pastel teal shade is a popular choice for front porch ceilings, but we think it makes a beautiful total exterior color as well. Bonus points if you’re building in a coastal region!

2) Benjamin Moore Black Panther

If you’re looking for a moody & dark exterior, Benjamin Moore Black Panther is a great option. We love the rich, inky shade on this build of Lake House Plan 29882RL in Georgia.

3) Sherwin Williams Forestwood

This build of New American Plan 365006PED by Gowler Homes fits perfectly in the Colorado mountains where it was built. The exterior, painted Sherwin Williams Forestwood, compliments the natural setting. We think this color is a great option for those building in more rural areas, like lake or mountain houses.

4) Sherwin Williams Iron Ore

Okay, you’ve probably seen this color before, as it’s definitely taken the building industry by storm in recent months. Sherwin Williams Iron Ore, as seen on our client’s build of Farmhouse Plan 51810HZ in Texas, is a dark charcoal shade. It’s a popular choice, but if you’re looking to go dark, we don’t think you can go wrong with this one!

5) Benjamin Moore Rockport Gray

This one might be our favorite on the list. Benjamin Moore Rockport Grey is a stunning taupe-y greige that we can’t get enough of. If you’re looking for a non-white or black neutral, we think this is the ideal option. The rich and earthy shade looks stunning on this build of Modern Farmhouse Plan 865000SHW!
