      Hello there, take a look at using either Shoji White SW 7042 or Natural Choice SW 7011 for your other 3 walls. These two colors coordinate with Urbane Bronze beautifully.

  5. What is the porch floor color in the photo? Thank you!

      Hi Emily! Take a look at Popular Gray SW 6071 for the deck color. You might also like Realist Beige SW 6071!

  6. Would this be a good color for an accent wall and the rest of the room agreeable grey?

      Hi Sarah! SW 7048 Urbane Bronze may be too dark and too much of a contrast to create a seamless flowing palette. Consider instead pairing SW 7029 Agreeable Gray with SW 9171 Felted Wood or SW 7046 Anonymous instead. It is always best to look at color in your lighting. Order some free sample chips from our website to determine which color will work best for you.

  7. What is the trim color in the exterior picture? Is that tricorn black?

  8. In the exterior photo with Urbane Bronze, can you provide information on the stain that was used for the beams? Thank you!

  9. Hi I was wondering what the beam stain is in the exterior photo? Thank you!

  10. Would Urbane Bronze be a good exterior color for board and batten? Planning to use it for a lake house we are building up in the mountains. What would you recommend as trim color that would go well with urbane bronze? Thanks.
