The only problem is that I skipped masonry paint for the fireplace makeover because a paint + primer was enough for an interior application. For an exterior application, I'm worried I should stick to actual masonry paint for the faux stone, but the few brands I have tracked down so far come pre-tinted and none have a shade as dark as my inspiration pictures.
As a plan B, I spotted this house while walking Szuka:
It's more muted, but I've really become enamored with taupe and bright turquoise. It's also far easier to track down a more mellow grey or taupe in paints designed for masonry.
