Best Exterior Paint

For some reason people think that because I am a landscaper, I somehow know what the best exterior paint is.  I can only weigh in on this topic based on my personal experience painting homes in high school and also renovating ours.  If I had to pick a single "go to" color that I thought would be good for a very wide range of people, I would definitely say to use grey exterior paint.  The great thing about this particular color family is the fact that it can go traditional or contemporary depending on your architecture and what you pair with it.  Even on this large house you can see how the house paint colors, although the same everywhere, take on a different look in different zones of the house.

Does anybody know what the best exterior paint for stucco is, like do you use just regular paint or do you have to use a different type?  Our house looks nice as is, but I would love it if we could paint all of the lighter exterior house colors in a a much more neutral white shade.  The one now is a little bit too warm for my tastes and almost looks like a soft buttery yellow.  I think that our house would look a lot more contemporary and updated if we painted that part white, and maybe even did a darker shade of brown for the trim.  I have heard a lot of people talk about good sherwin williams paint colors if you are looking for white, specifically "Swiss Coffee" I believe was the name.

I think that we chose the absolute best exterior paint to reflect the vibe we were trying to go for with this home.  My husband and I have a very contemporary style with components of industrial decor mixed in.  We moved into this more traditional style home (architecture-wise) with cedar shake siding and a quaint stone wall.  I knew that we were going to have to do our best to modernize the look of it with exterior house paint colors but, honestly, did not know where to begin.  I actually found my inspiration after watching an episode of the Adams Family haha.  The grey scale and foreboding look of the house really spoke to me, and I thought that we could do something really cool with darker shades of grey.

I have been having a hard time picking out the best exterior paint for our vacation home because all of the houses around us are so colorful, but I am just not a bold color kind of person.  I am so much more attracted to chic nudes and more neutral shades both indoors as well as for exterior paint colors.  Right now we have a grey color with a slightly greenish undertone.  My favorite colors are blue and green, but the softer versions of those shades.  I had considered doing a nice muted blue color but our neighbor just painted their home in a very similar shade so I did not want to do two houses of the same color right next to each other.

Several of our neighbors told us that the best exterior paint to use on stucco (like we all have on our street) is definitely Sherwin Williams.  They said that the color selection is fantastic especially for exterior home colors, and they have some technology that helps it to adhere to the stucco better.  I am really no expert on the topic, I just know what they told me so I figured I would pass the information along to anybody else who was curious.  As you can see we went with a softer grey tone for our home because I thought it would modernize it a little bit while still blending well with the terra-cotta roof.  A lot of people online said that a pigeon color (can't remember the exact name, but something to do with pigeon) is one of the best gray paint colors sherwin williams offers so that is the color we went with.

If you want to know my opinion, I think that the best exterior paint for just about any size or style home is a sun shiney yellow shade (or some version of that).  As you can see from these photos, we went with a beige shade color that has a lot of bright yellow to it for our exterior house paint.  We live in Florida, so I thought that this color is bright enough to work well with the tropical, beachy lifestyle we have, yet muted enough not to be "that house" on the street that has no taste and brings down the value of the neighborhood.  Our builder had us using Sherwin williams colors for everything on the interior, so we kept with the brand for the exterior as well.
