1. Aged Pewter
Aged pewter is a beautiful dark gray with sandy hues. Pewter also sometimes has a hint of purple and works excellent with both cool and warm tones. If you use Aged Pewter for your siding, go with a white, beige, or light brown for your accent color.
2. Arctic White
For a true classic, go with Arctic White. This muted white can brighten up your home and make it look good as new. This siding can work well with a taupe or brownish accent color. Or if you want that monochromatic look, paint your trim in Arctic White as well.
3. Boothbay Blue
Are you looking for a pop of color? Boothbay Blue is a perfect choice. This bright blue can really make a statement on your home. It’s perfect if you want to add some personality, and it goes well with white, gray, and black trim colors.
4. Cobble Stone
If you’re looking for a natural look, go with Cobble Stone. This color is a light taupe with a warm undertone like natural stone. It’ll give your home a rustic feel and match well with brown or green trim colors.
5. Countrylane Red
If you’re feeling bold, go with Countrylane Red. This siding color is a true red that will make your home stand out. It works great as an accent color and goes well with white or black trim colors.
6. Evening Blue
If you want a neutral and unique color, go with Evening Blue. This color is a light gray with blue undertones. It has a calming effect and will match well with any trim color.
7. Gray Slate
Gray slate is a beautiful dark gray that will be perfect for homes that want a modern or industrial look. Gray slate will match black, brown, or green trim colors.
8. Khaki Brown
Khaki Brown is a light brown with golden undertones. It’s a classic color that will never go out of style. Khaki brown goes well with white, beige, and light green trim colors.
9. Light Mist
Light Mist is the perfect choice if you want a neutral color that won’t clash with any trim color. But James Hardie suggests a soft white for your accent color. Either way, Light Mist is a very calming, welcoming color for your home.
10. Monterey Taupe
We love a beautiful taupe! Monterey Taupe is neutral, modern, and can go with just about anything. If you want to have a neutral siding but go bold with blues or greens as accent colors, this option is ideal. You really can’t go wrong with Monterey Taupe.
11. Mountain Sage
Earthy tones have been on trend for a few years, but green is a beautiful way to make your home pop. This Mountain Sage color is a little on the lighter side, so if you’re timid to go full forest green, this is the perfect compromise. Pair this with Light Mist trim, and you have yourself a winning combination.
12. Navajo Beige
For a true beige with golden yellow undertones, go with Navajo Beige. This timeless color can work with darker hues, lighter hues and looks beautiful juxtaposed with dark green landscaping like evergreens.
13. Night Gray
As darker shades become more and more popular, you can break the mold of light gray homes with Night Gray. Darker than James Hardie’s Gray Slate, this bold choice will make your home the envy of the block.
14. Timber Bark
A brown house doesn’t have to be ugly. With Timber Bark, your home gets the earthy, gorgeous warm tone it deserves. The Color Visualization tool suggests Arctic White, Cobble Stone, or Monterey Taupe as accent colors for this gorgeous color.
