The Gray Cottage – Exterior Paint Colors

  1. Andrea Conley says:

    Hello! I am in the midst of picking colors for my home and I’m having an extremely difficult time. I love the gray and white on the Gray Cottage you posted! But, I have a stucco home and I know it’ll look a bit different. Would you have any ideas for me on picking a nice gray and white scheme for my home if I were to send you a picture? I would love and appreciate any input. Thank you so much!

    • Abbie J. says:

      Hi! It might not look all that different. I personally think a white painted stucco with dark (DARK!) charcoal accents would be most stunning! 🙂

        Hi. I love your home. I’m in the process of selecting an exterior color and want to know your take on the main exterior being gray with the accents being white on a stucco home? You mentioned the reverse looking nice but I’m a bit hesitant about a main white exterior. Thanks in advance.

        • Abbie J. says:

          I’m sure you could do the reverse -it would mainly depend on the area you live and what fits in well. I highly suggest researching on pinterest that exact combination and see what comes up! 🙂

      What color shutters would you go with?

  2. Holly says:

    My husband and I are building a house and using the same exterior colors you have used. I’m curious what color your shingles are? We have to make a decision on that and I love the look of your house.

    • Abbie J. says:

      We used the darkest shingle on the board! It was almost black because the house paint is so dark. 🙂

  3. Angela says:

    I like this color and I’m thinking about to get it for a new construction. I would like to know what color shingles should I get? My options are charcoal, pewter grey, or weathered wood.

      • Cheryl says:

        They are asking the color I’m also interested can you tell us the brand and actual color you used. It doesn’t look black it looks more charcoal. Thank you beautiful home

    I really love the stone you chose on the exterior. What did you use?

  5. Angela says:

    My husband and I are looking to paint our house this summer. We love the exterior colors of your house ! However, currently the peaks on our house are painted a different color than the rest (it’s more like a darker version of the house color). He wants to keep this look, but we are having a hard time deciding on a good accent color with the grey/white. He wants a dark red, but I’m not sold on the idea. Do you have any suggestions?

  6. Cara Cox says:

    I love love love your house! I am wondering where you bought that stone and what color it is considered?!?! Thank you!

  7. Marianne says:

    Help. I am staining the exterior of a 3 story shake home. I choose gauntlet gray based on this photo. Is the whole house gauntlet or just parts. The front seems much lighter than the porch. Does it pull lots of brown?

  8. Jennifer says:

    I am in love with your home and your chosen colors. I’m using your exterior colors. I am needing a new garage door, did you use the standard residential white or did you have it painted in Snowbound? Also I cant decide between Amarr or Coplay garage door as we prefer the look of Coplay however the warranty doesn’t seem as good. What brand did you go with? Thanks!

  9. Alison Cerovsky says:

    Is there another color other than gauntlet grey on your house? It looks like there are two grey colors.

    • Abbie J. says:

      Newp – everything is all painted Gauntlet. The sun just changes the tone at various points during the day, as with any paint selection. 🙂

  10. Sue says:

    Love the colors in the stone/brick….do you have a link for that?

  11. Haley Pinochi says:

    Just clarifying that there is only one exterior color? The porch area where the front doo is, is also Gauntlet Gray?

  12. Toni Monton says:

    I love the color of your house, can you show me the whole picture? Thanks!

  13. Monique says:

    What color is the facia, please?

    Your house is beautiful! We are beginning an exterior renovation, combining board & batten siding with shingles. I love the colors you’ve chosen. Are your shingles dipped in paint, or painted once they are put up on the house? Are they cedar? I know cedar doesn’t hold paint that well and is typically stained, not painted…. Any insight is helpful- thank you!

  16. Marissa says:

    Looks great! These are the color scheme I’ve been looking at for some time. I have hardie plank all around on my two story. Do you think my house would look good if I used the same colors as you and add some stained shutters? I can send you pictures! Thanks!

    Hi! What color/brand are the shingles.

  19. Don says:

    Hello: I have a question about the foundation stone. What is the name of it . Plus what color is the roof.

  20. Sheila says:

    We are struggling with paint colors because Gauntlet Gray looks to dark in the sample when we put it in certain light. We are contemplating SW Cityscape (or Tin Lizzie) for the main part of the house; SW Iron Ore for the trim; black roof; black window trim; with cedar porch posts and wood front door; and Fond du Lac Graphite Country stone for foundation. I’m just not sure if the Cityscape (or Tin Lizzie) goes with the stone…thoughts? Gauntlet Gray looks like it blends perfectly with the stone, but we really think the paint color leans too brown for us…HELP!
