The House! Exterior Paint Colors

In my last post, I told you that our house has mostly been painted -- at least on the outside.  I know you can't tell from my poor photography and from the poor evening lighting, so I wanted to show you our colors (although who knows how they will read on your computer screen!)...

The body of the house is a creamy white,  Sherwin Williams City Loft (SW7631):

The trim is a bright white, Charleston White DCR100:

The accent color is a chocolatey sort-of color, Sherwin Williams Urbane Bronze (SW 7048):

(This will be on all the doors except the front door, the shutters, and anywhere else we think we need an accent color.  Also, we picked this before we picked the roof color, so now I am a little worried about how it will play out with the charcoal roof...)

And, finally, the front door.  Brad thinks I have lost my mind, but I am really excited.  Sherwin Williams Cloud Burst (SW 6487):

That's right -- it's turquoise.  I have been looking at all sorts of blogs and home decor magazines, and people are painting their front doors all sorts of colors -- navy, red, green, yellow, turquoise, even pink.  So my choice is really not that far out, and I love it.  Even if Brad thinks it will stop traffic.

So, what do you think?
