Did you miss Part 1? It covers Soft Whites, Black & Whites, and Dark exteriors.
Our Bannock Model
Desert Twilight from Benjamin Moore is a great option for that earthy, green-gray shade that looks like it stepped out of a Pottery Barn catalog. It's natural hue looks so good with landscaping, especially during the fall with orange contrasts and natural wood tones year round. I paired it here with Sherwin Williams Snowbound for a crisp contrast so it still felt fresh. Another favorite in this scheme that I like to use is Sherwin Williams Chatroom which is just a tad more gray but classic nonetheless.
Our Madison Model
This is Sherwin Williams Felted Wool. I love a good mushroom-y greige because it's been around forever and I don't think it's going anywhere, especially in the the Northwest. Why? Mostly because its color hides dirt, contrasts well with the landscape and feels true to the elements. I dig this tone with a stone or brick that provides a little contrast and a bright white trim to give it a little edge and help it not feel too dated.
