I recently worked with an online client helping to select an exterior paint color for her home. She had decided she wanted a gray and had narrowed her choices down to Ben Moore Chelsea Gray, Amherst Gray and Kendall Charcoal. She sent me a photo where she had already painted samples:
I do love Chelsea Gray. The only problem I have with using this gray outdoors is if the home is in strong sunlight all day. The Chelsea Gray color can seem washed out at times. My first choice of the three was the Amherst Gray HC-167. I love the depth of this color and that makes it different than the standard gray:
Amherst Gray is unique and has personality!:
I also love the way it seems to change tones depending on the amount of sunlight:
Or the amount of clouds during the day:
Beautiful! Devon is very happy with the Amherst Gray selection. She wrote, “ Amherst has so many different shades and depth to it. I get compliments ALL the time. It was the perfect color for our house!! I thought Chelsea had a lot of taupe undertones and was verrrrrrrryyyyy light when the sun hit it. We got a ton of sun and Amherst really is a stand out color. A tiny bit of green undertones but it’s truly beautiful!!!”
I agree -I think it was the perfect color choice!!
