Trim and sash color for red colonial in New England

June 8, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I love the look of black window sashes with different color trim, but I'm just not sure it will work with my non-historic (1980s) colonial. I experimented with one window in the back to see how it looks with the existing white trim. I'm not sure it's working for me. Thoughts? I also added a shot of my new garage doors, which are black, as well as the front of the house to give an idea of the style. Should I paint the window trim red like the clapboards, leave the inner window frame white, and the sash black? This would be like the color scheme of the garage doors (red-white-black). Thanks!!

I like the idea of black, too. Around the windows. Then, maybe a different color on the front door---splash of color (maybe yellow?)

Good luck and Happy decorating!

Love the black! I just bought all replacements for my new house and I did black, 2/1. Love them.

Should have been more descriptive -- black sash, green trim.
