McCormick Colonial and Chesapeake Exterior Colors
The official color scheme of Leewood is based on McCormick Colonial Colors. Over the years they have reduced the number of Colonial colors they offer, and ARC decided to include most of McCormick's Chesapeake Colors in the selections that they will approve. The Chesapeake colors must be mixed at the counter, as would their older colors from the colonial charts.
Any change of exterior house paint colors must be approved by the ARC. Fill out the Application for Exterior Color Approval and mail or e-mail it to the ARC to request approval of your color scheme.
In general, Leewood has a two-color house scheme with the shutters and door usually being the darker of the two colors and the trim being white or a shade of beige. No two adjacent dwellings may have the same shutter colors, nor may more than two dwellings in a connected row have painted areas (other than the trim) of the same hues.
Many houses in Leewood are painted in colors from the older charts. When you look at the paint charts below, it is not unusual for you to not see your own color in the current charts. For example many houses in Leewood are painted Deep Forest Brown (224). You can continue painting your house its original color without ARC approval, unless at some point the house was painted a variant color without approval.
We have scanned in the latest charts. The paint colors may not be exactly what is shown in the charts due to differences in monitors and printers, but hopefully this will help get you started.
The McCormick paint site lists stores where their paints are available. At these stores you should be able to get a color chart and/or paint chips. Unfortunately, it does not appear that the McCormick site has color chips for exterior paint.
In addition, with current paint technology, stores such as Home Depot can color-match from the paint manufacturer color name/number or a paint sample.
