Paint a grey areaGrey has been the big story in interior paints in recent times, so it’s no surprise it’s crept onto exterior window frames, too. It works well teamed with warmer brickwork and surrounded by grass, as they’ve done here. Coloured window frames not only make more sense on a gorgeous period property like this one where brilliant white would have looked out of character, they also make sense if you have a number of larger windows or French windows as they will weather better. White gloss paint can yellow over time and also gets dirty quickly; grey is more forgiving. However, conversely, darker shades can also fade and bleach out after prolonged exposure to sunlight.How to use grey with natural wood

Love the look of this stone, even browner would look great in this style

Consider a gray trim color if you have a stone or brick home. Find a gray that's already in the stone mix or is the color of the mortar and use that to blend the look together.
