We’re doing something totally different this time around. Our inspiration for this new build is to have a light exterior body color but accent it with slate and dark gray accents.
At LunDev we do a lot of high contrast with bronze and black windows and white paint colors, but I wanted to tone it down a bit and make it all vibe and feel connected within a similar color palette. So the main body color will be a light gray (thinking Owl Gray by Benjamin Moore) with Slate Gray 6 lite windows from Windsor with matching exterior 3 lite doors.
We want the overall look of the elevation to have classic elements like gas lanterns, iron gates and a clean garage door style. All the main hardware will be black and clean – loving School House Electric options right now.
Here’s a general idea of what we’re going for the exterior of our new home:
We plan on using a lot of slate material/colors for the outside and inside but balance that out with really light oak wood flooring and lots of natural light. With this home we’ll have a few designated areas to hang out outside, like the courtyard, dining room patio and back patio with outdoor kitchen and pool. We’ll be using a mix of slate and shell lock pavers to cover those areas while still keep the landscaping lush and blending in with the soothing color palette.
