Our client wanted to update his country home after his recent marriage. The house had been painted gray with charcoal trim.
Our client’s new wife is from the East Coast, and wanted a more contemporary look. Plus, the house needed staining, and the old alkyd stain supported quite a bit of mildew growth.
She selected a couple of greens for the siding with a white accent on the trim. We put some samples on the house, and after a while she chose Benjamin Moore “Salamander 2050-10” for the bulk of the siding, with the upper sections and bays going “Kennebunkport Green HC-123.”
Careful Painting elected to use the new Benjamin Moore Arborcoat to convey sharper colors and also to eliminate the mildew problem. Arborcoat is an environmentally friendly waterborne stain which outperforms other acrylic and alkyd (oil) stains.
The white accent really helps the greens to pop!
