April 2022 Color of the Month
Hillsborough Blend

A new month means a new episode has landed in our ongoing Color of the Month series! Inspired by hues found in a dense forest, Hillsborough Blend was the perfect choice for April as the cool earth tones that the concrete roof tile possesses offset the rising temperatures Spring typically brings. Showcasing a gorgeous mixture of natural grays and java hues, this beautiful color palette is available in our sleek and svelte Bel Air profile, a luxuriously modern flat shape that complements a wide variety of attractive paints and contemporary exterior architectural elements. If you’re after a versatile and fashionable look for your rooftop, Hillsborough Blend should be at the top of your list.

Design Trends and Versatility

While design trends vary over time, one style that continues to remain steadfast is choosing colors for both the exterior and interior that reflect nature’s influence. Offering endless possibilities, Hillsborough Blend does just that with its rich yet classic hues of mocha and light ash, which will absolutely transform the roofscape of any home or office into a statement piece. Thanks to the adaptability both hues offer, prospective buyers have the ability to lean into either color found within the tile by painting the exterior of their structure to complement the roof or exude chicness by contrasting the blend with pale to midtone blues and greens, a warm white or a dark navy.

Offered only in our Bel Air profile, 4883 Hillsborough Blend’s smooth flat appearance offers a wonderfully refined design best suited for Contemporary and Transitional architecture. For those interested in modernizing their Mediterranean-inspired home’s appearance, this profile is also the ideal choice. If you prefer sleekness above all else, contemplate decorating the crown jewel of your home in this lustrous and svelte profile.

Color Exploration

As previously stated, Hillsborough Blend is a stunning product that conjures a range of hues found in nature. The cool grays remind us of sandy beaches and desolate dunes while the earthy browns and faint charcoal streaking invokes the floor of a remote jungle found in the amazon rainforest. Thanks to the versatility of its shades, Hillsborough Blend offers homeowners and designers alike the ability to choose from a variety of paint options. Illustrated below are two schemes that highlight the genuine adaptability of this gorgeous blend.

For a calming, tranquil appearance, gloss your home with Sherwin Williams 9149 Inky Blue, a subtle yet sophisticated balance between cobalt and navy shades. To contrast this rich hue, trim the structure with a soft, warm cream, like Sherwin Williams 6077 Everyday White, and tie the front door and garage doors in with another earth tone, such as Sherwin Williams 9084 Cocoa Whip. Not only will this palette complement your concrete tile roof, but you’ll be the talk of the neighborhood for years to come.

If you fancy a more contemporary look, consider a more neutral color scheme by repainting the exterior in a cool white, like Sherwin Williams 7006 Extra White. Incorporate the brown pigments found in the tile by accenting the windows and trim in a creamy, soft greige, such as 7016 Mindful Gray. Complete the chic style by coloring the front door in 7674 Peppercorn to highlight the streaking found throughout the roofscape.
