8 Best James Hardie Siding Colors
So, you’re convinced! James Hardie siding is right for you. Now comes the hard part: choosing a color.
Check out this guide to our favorite colors from their collection.
1) Cobble Stone 🧱
Cobble Stone is the neutral shade of your dreams. A creamy beige, this color instantly evokes a sunny walk through a small southern town. We love the combination of the Cobble Stone siding color with white trim and sleek details like black light fixtures.

2) Light Mist 💨
Gray siding is timeless, and that’s certainly the case with Light Mist. We love that this color is a soft neutral with light undertones but that it isn’t so light that it reads as white from a distance.
We love this color for a beachside home or sweet little cottage.

3) Pearl Gray 🔘
Like Light Mist, Pearl Gray is a soft gray shade. Pearl Gray, however, has slight brown undertones that gives this shade an earthier feel than other gray colors. As such, we love this color when paired with a brown or tan roof.
Pearl Gray also looks natural when combined with stone elements like brick detailing on your home or rocky landscaping.

4) Golden Beehive 🐝
Natural wood siding never goes out of style, but when it comes to maintenance, it can be a lot to handle. James Hardie siding in the shade Golden Beehive can give you a similar natural look that will last much longer.
We love that Golden Beehive is a warm, golden color that is reminiscent of natural cherry wood. That said, it has some cool undertones that keep it from having the orange appearance of classic wood siding options like cedar.
We would pair this shade with bright white trim and an accent color like blue for your front door.

Love the farmhouse aesthetic? Why not pick siding to match?
Farmhouse White is a gorgeous bright white shade with cool undertones that will make any home look happy and welcoming!

6) Evening Blue 🌙
More and more homeowners are choosing deep blue shades to make their home exteriors pop! Evening Blue is a perfect navy shade for your home. The hint of black helps this blue still feel like a classic neutral color while still making a statement.

7) Navajo Beige 🌵
Looking for a soft, neutral brown that will never go out of style? The timeless look of Navajo Beige looks good on virtually every style of home. We think pairing it with a creamy white creates a warm, homey feel.

8) Everglade ⛰️
Green is everywhere these days! Why not add it to the exterior of your home? We like that Everglade makes a big impression without looking unnaturally bright amongst the greenery of your yard. We’d pair this with white trim for a fresh look.
