We're getting our exterior woodwork painted in a couple of weeks and our decorator has just dropped off a colour chart and I've got no idea! He will be using dulux weathershield.

Our house is a red brick detached. I'd like an off white/pale cream colour for the windows and either a pale green or dark grey for the doors. Any suggestions? The windows are the hardest bit! I'm thinking maybe almond white or jasmine white?

If anybody has any pictures for inspiration that would be brilliant, Google isn't being very helpful :-/ thanks!

Or ash white maybe?! How difficult can it be to choose a creamy version of white?! Very it seems!

We painted our windows in gardenia after trying a million sample pots. It's a lovely ivory colour which goes with our red brickwork. I've used farrow and ball for our door though- Hague blue.

Ooh could you send a picture? Useful to see it on a house, the colour guide pictures don't help at all in imagining how it will look!

This is the front bay. Don't want to put the whole front on and be recognised grin

Ha! Good thinking 😅

That's exactly the colour I'm after, hugely grateful for you sending that, that's made the decision for me smile x

Ps it does look quite cream in the tin, but when it's on outdoor woodwork it looks paler. I had considerable trauma trying to get it right and discounted it at first for being too cream, it was our decorator that said to use it!
