What colours go with Woodland Grey® by COLORBOND® steel?
29 August 2023
Grey is having a big moment in design and décor lately.
In fact, the trend among younger homeowners to use it in their decorating has been dubbed “millennial grey”, with some exploring how to “escape” from this overused colour scheme.
But with sheds, the greys just make sense. COLORBOND® steel’s Sheds range includes 9 different greys, from the cool and pale Southerly® to the darker and imposing shades. (Fun fact – it may not be quite 50 shades of grey, but in the extended COLORBOND® range there are over 30 greys and silvers.)
But we're focusing on one – Woodland Grey®. Most importantly, which colours go best with it?
Should I match my shed colour scheme to my house exterior or fence?
It depends on your goals for the colour scheme. Matching with the house creates coherence and aesthetic harmony, while a match with the fence colour provides separation and can highlight the fence as a focal point.
You may also want to consider the layout of your property, and how close the shed will sit to the house.
Is Woodland Grey® the same as Monument®?
While both are popular shades, they are distinct.
The lighter Woodland Grey® is a greenish-grey colour, inspired by coastal scrub and inland bush and perfect for country style homes.
The dark and imposing Monument is a deep charcoal grey, reminiscent of volcanic formations on the southern coastline, and makes a bold exterior statement.
If grey isn't really your thing, don't worry – there's a colour to suit you. Pick something that blends in or becomes one of the exterior features of your property or new home.

Remember, the best exterior colour combination will depend on the application, the architectural style, lighting and the surrounding environment. It's essential to consider overall aesthetics before making a decision.
