We are going with a cream exterior and we finally have a winner (Benjamin Moore's Timid White OC-39) thanks to my brave mother-in-law knocking on a door to inquire about the color. My mom and Josh approved, so we are going with it! The trim will be the same color. It's a really rich cream without looking yellow, taupe or white.
This is the Timid White inspiration house -- I know my house won't suddenly look like this with a few coats of paint. :)
Now -- shutter color has not been unanimously agreed upon so I did a little quick amateur mocking up.
I'm leaning towards a medium gray as something a little bit different. Plus, it will remind me of our beloved "Gray Lady" we are leaving behind.
Which would you choose?
