If you are looking for a modern, bright and fresh gray siding color that’s a little on the cooler side, take a look at Benjamin Moore’s Stonington Gray HC-170. It is a modern and fresh gray with a slight blue undertone. Another favorite from Ben Moore’s Historical Collection is Amherst Gray HC-167 which is timeless, deeper and darker and can be used from traditional to modern homes. It’s a great color for the body of your home if you’re looking for drama.

Crisp white trim with darker contrasting siding lends a modern vibe. Benjamin Moore’s Simply White OC-117 is a very clean white and White Dove OC-17 is the universal white of all white paints. It always looks great. It is a white with a touch of cream and is perfect for trim.

Definitely add a splash of color on the front door. A cheerful red door nods to traditional American barns. Give Caliente AF-690 a try. It is a ravishing red that is cheery and bright. Whether you’re looking for a farmhouse or a beachy look, there is nothing like a fresh, modern teal paint to add a fun accent. A blueish teal with big impact is Benjamin Moore’s Baltic Sea CSP- 680 from their Color Stories Collection. It is a lush paint color from the Benjamin Moore Color Stories Collection. This unique line offers e full spectrum paints, meaning there is no black or gray in any of the colors. The colors are so rich, saturated and intense.
