Like the soothing effect of a calm lake, there’s something peaceful about the color blue. It reminds us of summer pastimes like dangling our feet over the dock’s edge and watching the water gently ripple. And lately, we can’t get enough of the hue. James Hardie® siding with ColorPlus® Technology comes in a few different blue options, including the calming Boothbay Blue.
Going with ColorPlus Technology means gaining access to a collection of well-curated hues that all beautifully complement one another. We love the combination of HardiePlank® lap siding in Boothbay Blue and HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White—it’s downright nautical chic.
Here are a few soothing and striking Boothbay Blue beauties:
This home is clad in HardiePlank lap siding in Boothbay Blue with HardieTrim boards in Arctic White. The entryway merges the opposed feelings of modern and warm, which is welcoming in a seamless way.
This front porch just seems to say, relax. The HardiePlank lap siding in Boothbay Blue and HardieTrim boards in Arctic White add to the inviting mood. The rocker matches the crisp trim and the pop pillow adds a hint more interest.
These homeowners took inspiration from their backyard marina view, and clad their waterfront home in HardiePlank lap siding in Boothbay Blue with HardieTrim boards in Arctic White.
Besides a color you love, you can trust the staying power of the product, a baked-on, fade-resistant, consistent color that will last years with lower maintenance than field applied paint. James Hardie’s ColorPlus Technology is specifically engineered to help resist damaging UV rays, and its finish is factory cured for a strong bond that resists chipping, peeling and cracking.
If you’re out of your blue period, the ColorPlus palette includes complementary shades ranging from soft neutrals, to bold red to fresh greens. To find the siding and trim hues that speak to you, preview complementary combinations with the James Hardie Color Tool.
