taupe colors

I have a linen white stucco house. I would like to use taupe for the window trim. How is briarwood and waynesboro taupe different? Is there another shade of taupe that would look better with linen white? I was thinking of using iron gate or gargoyle for the shutters. What shade of blue would go with these colors (for the door)?


Benjamin Moore Briarwood has a slight green undertone, compared to the Benjamin Moore Waynesboro Taupe, which has a bit more gray. Both could work with the Benjamin Moore LInen White, though the Waynesboro Taupe seems to be a better match.

I like the idea of using either Benjamin Moore Gargoyle or Iron Gate for the shutters. The darker of the two would be a nice contrast with the taupe color.

Other taupe colors that you could consider sampling would be: Benjamin Moore Northhampton Putty

Benjamin Moore Alexandria Beige

Benjamin Moore Brandon Beige (this color also works well with the shutter colors you're considering.)

For your front door, here are a few blues to sample once you decide on your trim colors:

Benjamin Moore Sea Reflections

Benjamin Moore Buckland Blue

Benjamin Moore I've Got the Blues

Hope this has been helpful. Be sure to sample any colors that you're considering, as lighting and landscaping can affect how colors look on each home.
