Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection: Colors in Action
The new Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection just launched, and we’re excited to show you some of these siding color options on our photorealistic exterior designs. We’ve been fans of James Hardie’s products for some time now — they offer one of our go-to products for clients because they marry form and function in equal weight. There were already tons of gorgeous James Hardie siding color options, but it’s always fun to have new colors to work with. We’re looking forward to designing with these fresh additions to the James Hardie repertoire.
Send us a photo of your home (or a blueprint) and we can use the new siding options from the Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection to design a fresh look and create a rendering of your home’s potential. Learn more about our design services.
The Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection Hand-Picked Colors
Each of the 16 colors in this new collection has been hand-selection by Joanna Gaines. We love the focus on warm, earthy shades and soft neutrals. Plus, we appreciate that there are a couple of moody and dramatic dark hues thrown into the mix. Overall, the colors are both on-trend and timeless.
At brick&batten, we’re uniquely equipped to help you visualize these new siding colors on your home before committing to the costly (but often extremely worthwhile!) investment of updating your home to fiber cement siding. Our expert designers are ready to recommend one of the colors from the collection for your property. We can also help you make the siding color of your choice work as part of a broader color scheme. Perhaps you’re looking to pair a new Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection color with painted brick or stone. Let us help! As part of our process, we’ll suggest other design elements to elevate your curb appeal.
Note that each of these colors is available in James Hardie’s board & batten, shingle, and plank siding options. They are offered in smooth and Select Cedarmill® textures as well as in soffit panels and trim boards.
Read on for our descriptions of some of these siding colors, in no particular order. And learn about how our designers chose to use them!
#1 // Birch Tree
Let’s start things off with Birch Tree. This warm off-white that plays well in an earthy color palette — for example, alongside Benjamin Moore’s Deep Creek on the brick and with natural-toned wood accents on the home above.
Below, Birch Tree works beautifully as a field color on this two-story home. Our designers chose to use contrasting black and near-black materials as well as thick dark walnut columns to give the design depth.
#2 // Dried Eucalyptus
Next, Dried Eucalyptus is a lovely mid-range greenish gray that reads as relaxing and welcoming. On this home, we used Benjamin Moore’s Simply White on the columns, eaves, and soffit to make the home’s architectural lines pop against this cool neutral color. A warm beige stone veneer on the porch and main level bump outs plays off of the wood accents to ground the façade.
#3 // Slate Steps
Slate Steps is a saturated gray that references slate in the natural world. We love its blue and green tones. Here, we used blue flagstone on the walkway to highlight the color’s blue side and lots of greenery in the landscape to pull out its green hue.
#4 // Weathered Cliffs
Weathered Cliffs is one of the most neutral and versatile colors in the Magnolia Home | James Hardie Collection. It’s warm, with notes of cream and greige. The warm creaminess of the color will show up more on south-facing exterior walls, while the greige notes will be stronger on north-facing surfaces. This is a great color option for fans of the modern farmhouse style who don’t want to go with stark white siding.
#5 // Warm Clay
Warm Clay is one of those complex mid- to dark-toned neutral colors that we’re loving for home exteriors at the moment. It’s a warm earthy hue that reads brown-green-gray. You can pull out any of those colors based on the accents you choose. Warm Clay works nicely with blacks, off-whites — or, as you can see on the home above, both!
#6 // Midnight Soot
One of the darkest colors in this new collection, Midnight Soot is deep and rich and moody. We love it. On the contemporary home above, we used it in a thick vertical panel format alongside thin real-wood horizontal cladding. Below, Midnight Soot helps bring a more modern energy to a traditional two-story home. Consider using it as an accent for contrast or as a field color to punch up the drama.
#7 // Peppery Ash
Peppery Ash is one part green, one part gray, all parts gorgeous. It’s deep and versatile but still feels saturated — a good option if you like the range of gray but want something that feels a bit more colorful.
#8 // Rustic Road
Rustic Road is a warm greige that can almost read as off-white in some lights but has plenty of depth to it. It’s a great option for homeowners who like the look of a black-and-white color scheme but who get plenty of direct sunlight and don’t want to blind the neighbors. Above, we paired Rustic Road with lots of black elements, warm stone cladding, and a few pops of natural warmth with wood and copper.
#9 // Mudflats
Finally, let’s talk about Mudflats. If you like Warm Clay above but want something deeper and more committed to green / less brown, Mudflats is a great option for you. You can also think of it as Peppery Ash with less gray to it. This tone lightens up the weight of the black design elements above, lending an organic feel to the design.
