The 8 Best Red Exterior House Paints by Meredith Swinehart

Issue 101 • The Early Bird
Red is a great house color, but only the right red will do. We searched high and low for the best exterior red paint colors, only to learn that the range of “right” reds is surprisingly wide. From traditional farmhouse reds imbued with orange to pink-inflected shades for bold front doors, a good red is sophisticated and versatile.


Top row, left to right: Benjamin Moore Cottage Red; Benjamin Moore Million Dollar Red; Farrow & Ball Rectory Red; and Farrow & Ball Blazer. Bottom row: Benjamin Moore Caliente; Sherwin-Williams Solid Color Stain in Cape Cod Red; Benjamin Moore Heritage Red; and Cabot Solid Stains Barn Red.

P2 Design of LA used Benjamin Moore’s Caliente on this Brentwood house, spotted on Delorme Designs.
