Sara McLean Hi Kathy-this is Sara from Dunn-Edwards. To complement and balance your exterior coloring, I suggest painting the white color on the window trim and garage door trim. For your accent color, I suggest using this on your garage door (keep the trim around the door white) and the gutters (keep the trim around the eaves white). Happy painting! READ MORE
Sara McLean Hi Ray-this is Sara from Dunn-Edwards. You're in luck! DE6229 Calico Rock is a color in our Perfect Palette color system and you can get it in any of our stores. Happy painting! READ MORE
Sara McLean Hi Sara-this is Sara from Dunn-Edwards. Here are some fun out-of-the-box front door colors to test- DEA107 Hot Jazz, DEA133 Rare Turquoise, DE5697 Jade Mountain, DE5090 Pomegranate, DE5244 Melted Copper. Another option is looking at some of our brights, interiors-only colors. Normally I don't suggest for exterior, just note that they will fade faster so more upkeep. Test these-DEA109 Bonfire Flame, DEA125 In the Tropics, DE5138 Orangeville. Happy painting! READ MORE
