Most Popular Sherwin-Williams Exterior Paint Colors
First and foremost, let’s take a look at the most popular paint colors overall.
These colors are popular not just for San Antonio and South Texas Homes but seamlessly blend into any residential climate.
A darker, neutral beige, Chatroom has subtle yellow undertones throughout its hue.
This color won’t only give your home a natural and classic look, but it will also help budding Spring flowers and green foliage pop.
2. Balanced Beige
With a more pinky undertone, Balanced Beige is the perfect classic beige that doesn’t make your home too brown.
Pairing this paint color with Arctic White trim will make the outline of your home jump out and brighten up your exterior, even on cold and dreary winter days.
3. Worldly Gray
Looking for the perfect neutral gray that won’t give your home too dark of an undertone?
Choose Expert Pick Worldly Gray for a light and fresh exterior color to give your home a modern and minimalistic look that will stand the test of time.
4. Jogging Path
Finding the right beige for your exterior all comes down to the deep tones of the color.
Jogging path offers a soft beige-gray look, similar to Balanced Beige, but with green undertones, providing a warmer feel to your home’s exterior.
5. Natural Linen
If Balanced Beige and Chatroom had a love child, it would be Natural Linen.
This soft beige color combines the undertones of yellow with a front-facing pinkish hue and is arguably the best beige color choice for any neutral color lover.
6. Shoji White
Inspired by the Japanese lattice-screened sliding doors, Shoji White combines the colors of the white opaque screens and the warm wooded framing of a shoji to create a soft light beige.
Shoji White was named the August 2022 Color of the Month but is a timeless option from year to year.
7. Evergreen Fog
Classy, elegant, and chic are just a few words to describe the calming color of Evergreen Fog.
This medium gray with green undertones brings a cool serenity to your home’s exterior.
Alabaster is the perfect off-white with a hint of greige for any homeowner who doesn’t want your basic white, gray, or beige.
This color was named Color of the Month for April 2022.
9. Agreeable Gray
When looking for the perfect neutral gray that matches any exterior, you can’t disagree with Agreeable Gray.
This Expert Pick color is, without a doubt, one of the best neutral colors with slightly cooler undertones, yet it won’t make your home look as dark as stone.
10. Repose Gray
Repose Gray can be hard to differentiate from Agreeable Gray, but it’s important to look at the undertones and how they match with the aesthetics of your home.
This neutral gray paint color has a slightly cooler undertone than Agreeable Gray, making it ideal for homeowners with darker or cooler-toned details on their homes.
11. Tricorn Black
For the homeowner who wants a dramatic but not-too-dark black, Tricorn Black is a softer color tone than your traditional black.
This is the perfect black for chic and nontraditional homeowners who want to stand out on their block.
To the untrained eye, Caviar and Tricorn Black look seemingly identical. While Tricorn Black is a softer black, Caviar has a richer undertone.
When analyzed more closely, Caviar has more depth in its color, but consulting with a professional color analyst will help ensure you choose the best black exterior paint for your home.
Best Gray Blacks
13. Iron Ore
If you’re looking for the perfect dark gray for your home, Iron Ore provides that rich and classic hue for your exterior.
This gray-black color is what you think of when you think of traditional gray, perfect for the minimalistic homeowner who still wants an edge.
Peppercorn is another classic gray Sherwin-Williams offers for any homeowner who wants a cooler-toned home.
Peppercorn is a lighter gray shade than Iron Ore, in case you want to take a leap to the dark side while still playing it safe.
As another runner-up in the Best Gray category, Pavestone is a warm-toned gray with slightly yellow undertones.
This color would pair well with freshly painted white trim and gutters to outline your home and elevate its brightness.
Best Brown Black
16. Black Fox
Black fox is the embodiment of a warm dark gray with green undertones to match the natural world around you.
This color is ideal for homeowners who want to make a statement with an organic touch.
Best Dark Blues
17. Sea Serpent
For those who lean towards aquatic themes and the serenity blue tones bring, Sea Serpent has a classy yet unique exterior.
If you are a lover of turquoise shades but don’t want your home to scream too loudly, this paint color may be your perfect match.
As the name suggests, Naval is your classic navy blue but with rich depth that brings a regal vibe to your home.
Naval was Sherwin-Williams’ Color Of The Year in 2020, but its royalty still reigns supreme as the best navy blue.
19. Urbane Bronze
When you think of traditional bronze, you may think of shiny metal that flashes with such character. While Sherwin Williams’ bronze shades still shine bright against other colors, they offer a more subtle approach to this classic metallic.
Urbane Bronze is another wonderful muted option for those wanting a darker greige, with its mix of dark brown and slight gray.
20. Enduring Bronze
Want something a bit more rich, like milk chocolate? Enduring Bronze embodies more warmth and a classic brown tone than Urbane Bronze.
This color would be a match for homes with dark brown or maroon accents to bring out the red in its hue.
Best Bold and Bright

Ready to jump with two feet in on making your home stand out? Check out Brave Purple for a bright and funky yet pastel and classy color.
This muted lavender color will make your home stand out without being obnoxiously too loud.
22. Baked Clay
This Sherwin-Williams Expert Pick is a vibrant yet subtle orange that exudes colors of the Southwest and adobe clay.
For any home in the south, east, north, or west, this color brings a rich historical character that embodies nature and the resources around us.
23. Silken Peacock
