Gorgeous Shades in the Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection
Midnight Soot and Last Embers are the darkest shades in the Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection. However, while Last Embers has cool undertones, Midnight Soot has warm undertones for a deep, rich appearance. While you can use this dramatic tone to modernize an entire home, consider using it as an accent with brick, wood, or stone.
Rugged Path is an authentic “tan” shade you can use with other warm colors, like brown shingles and stone veneer. Craftsman homes look exceptional with this shade!
Rustic Road is a versatile off-white, beige shade with grey undertones. If you love the idea of creating a modern farmhouse façade with creamy white siding and black details, like windows, trim, and garage doors, this is the perfect color for you. You can even add more warmth with natural wood or stone cladding.
Dried Eucalyptus is a pale grey color with cool greenish undertones. It’s a laid-back, easygoing shade that will add an inviting look to any exterior. Consider pairing this color with white details, like trim, soffit, and windows, and a natural stone veneer around the porch to add a warm element to an otherwise cool façade.
Last Embers is a dark greyish-black color like Midnight Soot, but unlike Midnight Soot, this shade has cool undertones. In the right lighting, it may appear navy blue, so it’s excellent for a striking contemporary exterior or paired with white detailing and brick for an appearance that’s not quite as harsh.
If you’re looking for a warm, dark-toned brown, you’ll love Warm Clay. You can pair this earthy shade with an off-white color to lighten the look, black shingles, windows, and trim for a moody, eye-catching style, or both for a perfect blend!
Stone Paver is a versatile, warm-toned shade between brown and white. Bring out the best of this shade with off-white natural stone detailing, grey roofing, and black features, like windows and trim, to create an eye-catching modern farmhouse.
It’s About Thyme
While you may assume It’s About Thyme is a deep green shade, it’s actually a cool off-white color with very subtle green undertones. Think of it as Dried Eucalyptus but majorly toned down. You can pair it with other colors in the Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection, like Wandering Green and Mudflats, to bring out the green, or with red brick for a charming look.
If you love using a deep grey for your exterior but don’t want your home to look too heavy, consider using Peppery Ash. This shade has strong green undertones, so your home will still have some color, and it looks great with black and natural stone details.
Chiseled Green is a beautiful grey-green shade best described as sage. It looks stunning when paired with a warm black like Midnight Soot for shutters, trim and roofing, and natural wood details to create a cozy, inviting feeling you and your guests will love.
Birch Tree is a warm off-white that works well with earthy colors, like Warm Clay or Peppery Ash. To create neutral accents, you can even mix and match this color with other materials, like brick or wood, or use eye-catching black shingles and trim to create a contemporary look.
Slate Steps is the “purest” grey hue in the Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection, named after natural slate. If you use this color with green or blue detailing, like plants or pavers, it brings out the cool undertones in the rich color.
Stone Beach, like Stone Paver, is a warm, off-white shade with grey undertones. However, it’s a bit lighter than the latter, mimicking the color of a light-colored sandy beach. This hue is exceptionally versatile, so you can use it in any way you would use an off-white shade.
Weathered Cliffs is one of the most neutral, versatile shades in the Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection. It and Birch Tree are the purest “white” colors in the collection, though while Birch Tree has cooler undertones, Weathered Cliffs has warmer, creamier undertones that are a welcoming contrast to a stark white siding.
Wandering Green is the darkest green-toned shade in the Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection. If you want your home to blend in with your neighborhood’s natural scenery, this color is a great choice.
If you want a happy medium between Peppery Ash and Wandering Green, you’ll love Mudflats. While this shade is a dark, deep color, the greenish undertones help lighten up the heaviness of the hue, allowing you to pair your exterior with dark or light details—or a mix of both!
