Naval in the Northwest: Colors for Exterior House Painting

What is are great colors for exterior house painting in the northwest?  Portland metro area loves their deep grays and browns even some navy.  Last year we painted a 12 plex and a single family residence in Sherwin Williams’ ‘Naval’.

Gray has been an extremely popular color. What is critical with all colors but particularly the families of gray and beige – is looking for the undertone. A medium gray can look almost purple if it has too much red in the formula. Nothing wrong with purple if that was what you wanted.

It can be difficult to image what that little square of color will look like when painted over your entire house. That is why we recommend working with our color consultant – Wendy.
