Rocky Mountain
Color by Region

In this region, open spaces and mountain views are the star of the show. Our color palette honors this perspective with an emphasis on warm, neutral hues that blend beautifully with stone, wood and other natural elements.

The best paint colors for homes in this area should highlight the snow-capped mountains and rugged vistas—not compete with it.

Accentuate Communal Space with Color

Whether it’s a lofty mountain lodge, modern farmhouse, or intimate craftsman, communal space is often integral to Rocky Mountain region homes. Open space plans are enhanced with bold accent colors that effortlessly carve out distinct areas in any room. Here, deep blue Champion Cobalt 2061-20 denotes a living room library nook, enhanced further by sliding barn doors.

Other accent wall colors we love that pop against neutrals and serve as effective space delineators include earthy red New London Burgundy HC-61 and Black Satin 2131-10.

A flinty gray roof, warm white siding, black trim and a stone façade come together for this modern lodge exterior that stands out for being equal parts understated and chic.

In addition to Baby’s Breath OC-62, shown here from the Benjamin Moore Off-White color collection, other favorite neutral exterior paint colors include the greige Pale Oak OC-20, sandstone-meets-khaki Manchester Tan HC-81, Silver Fox 2108-50 and Gull Wing Gray 2134-50.
