I chose a palette of earthy tones with a deep, rich accent color for a modern twist on a traditional color scheme. Pair this with the earthy tones of the stone veneer from the Dry-Stack collection in Charcoal for the perfect nature-inspired look. For the perfect finishing touch, add an outdoor chandelier that blends modern style with vintage touches.

I started with a stone veneer from the Great Lakes collection in the color Fawn. It’s a great neutral that goes with any color and the pattern reads both traditional and modern. I’ve paired it with a deep, smokey, gray-brown color. It’s a great go-to color for exterior surfaces, like garage doors, because it blends in with the stone. To finish, I chose light sconces with an elegant shape that adds sophistication.

I love a great blue on a house either as the siding, on the shutters or as the trim around the windows. A rustic orange on the front door is always a show stopper too. Mixed with a stone veneer from the Dry-Stack collection in the color Charcoal and a classic retro black light for a winning combo.

The combination of two blue colors is timeless and beautiful. I would add an orange door for a fun pop of color. To balance the blues, I chose a stone veneer from the Great Lakes collection in the color Brindle which adds sophistication to this look. To finish, a light fixture that is functional yet stylish with a casual, elegant look is perfect.

My inspiration started with the stone veneer from the Great Lakes collection in the color Raven which looks contemporary. I then selected a darker paint color for the remaining part of the exterior to balance the stone texture and give it a dramatic look. I rounded out the palette with a lighter tone for the windows and door trim and a pop of color for the front door. Finally, the light fixtures are a hint of traditional with a classic but timeless look.

I think that a tonal gray paint palette is beautiful, timeless and a great choice for exteriors. I chose a stone veneer from the Dry-Stack collection in the color Charcoal which works well with the grays and adds modern sophistication to a home. An outdoor pendant that is both functional and stylish, helps to bring this look together.
