New Beachtown Dream Home paint scheme viewed from primary dune walkover.


Well, after days and weeks of consideration, we chose our exterior paint scheme and the home is now painted.  And we couldn’t be more pleased.  See if you don’t agee.   New pictures are now posted to the Gallery.    

Because we designed our home to match the look and feel of the homes you will see at Seaside, Florida, we went with a bright blue color scheme.  At first it seemed too bold of a color choice, however, we quickly realized that when the sun is at full strength, it tends to wash out the colors.  So lighter blues ended up just looking white.     

The colors are as follows:    

  • Trim: Lowes Anthem White
  • Hardiplank siding:  Sherman Williams Northern Lights
  • Ground floor: Lowes Smoke Infusion
  • Ground floor louvers: Sherman Williams Teacup

Note:  We only used top-of-the-line Sherman William paints designed specifically to handle tough coastal environments.
